Rishab’s small cars collection

Like all kids Rishab loves cars and other toys.

Some times i wonder at how many things today kids are exposed to. During my childhood all i had was a few plastic toys which could hardly move. Rishab and this generation has access to iPad, iPhone, remote controlled cars, helicopters and all kinds of fancy toys.

I must say Rishab takes care of his toys and I still don’t remember he breaking any of his toys.
I am glad i looked at his toys through the lens today. loved every bit of it.

Mint plant

We bought a mint plant and i taught Rishab how to water the plant and take care of it.  We also sowed some chilli seeds in another pot.  It was interesting to show him how those plants germinate from the seeds.

Within a week this plant had enough leaves and Preethi used some leaves for making Chutney & i mixed them with lemonade. Now everyday as soon as Rishab comes back from school, first thing he does is check the plants.

Mardi Gras 2012 at Louisiana

2012 Mardi Gras was Rishab’s 3rd Mardi Gras in Lousisiana. Although for us it was no more than a fun filled picnic, For Rishab it was eagerly awaited and very exciting event as he gets lot of toys for screaming at the floats.
We attended 2 parades in Mandeville and this the last one at Metairie on 21st. We went 2 hours early to safeguard our space (Deepak was the first one to go and reserve it for all of us). We played with the football while kids played around. This was a picture taken while kids were waiting for the parades.

We did not attend too many parades this year but attended just enough to feel good about the season.
 
Rishab got many swords and other toys along with lots of beads.

Fact – Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday in french, Last day of the mardi gras is always a Tuesday.

As you can see after Mardi Gras parades, lot of thorws and trash fill the roads. Although road looks like this, Everything is cleaned up in a few hours and city is normal as usual the very next daye
