Our in-laws brought one of these back with them after they stayed on the Gulf Coast a couple winters ago. Must have been 2016? Anyway, we had twins in 2014. The first bite of King cake we took, we hit the plastic baby. Well…babies. There were two in that single bite. Quite a fitting omen.


I definitely had this in New Orleans, though it was not Carnival season and I am not even sure where…memories of those couple days are a little hazy…
