Krewe of Gemini Mardi Gras Ball

mardiball1The entire Royal Court

Over the weekend, Kim and I attended our very first Mardi Gras ball and had an absolute blast. We were guests of a good friends family and in fact, we’ve now been invited to join the Krewe. This is an honor and we are thrilled to be invited. The Krewe of Gemini is the best Mardi Gras Krewe around and the people that make up the Krewe are some of the nicest folks you’ll ever meet.

Wearing a Tux and formal dress, we showed up to the ball not quite knowing what to expect. We were seated at our friends table which was right on the main floor and very close to the stage. We also noticed that we were seated right next to the Mayor of Gulfport, Brent Warr and his wife Laura. We enjoyed their company a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the festivities of the night.

We’re looking forward to Mardi Gras and the main event with the parade in Pass Christian in which Kim will be riding on the one of the floats. Myself, I will be probably be drinking and fetching beads along the side somewhere.

Thanks to Danielle and her family for inviting us – you’re very generous and good people.
