Happy St. Patrick's Day

Since we all probably have a little bit o' Irish in us...

We are going downtown to show our love for the Irish by watching the parade and eating some brats!

**Update on the parade** We had a lovely time. It was in the 70's during the parade, which lasted all of about 15 minutes. Caitlin sat on the curb watching the floats, cars and horses go by and catching candy that was thrown down. She managed to get about 6 pieces so it was a mini-Halloween to her. I saw an old high school home ec teacher who handed me a paper crane, symbol of peace. I guess I haven't changed much, because, after almost 11 years, she still recognized me! After the parade, we walked a few blocks down to the Coffee Trader for Italian Cream Sodas (Coconut for me, strawberry for Caitlin) and then walked back to the car. Caitlin spent a majority of the day outside since it was absolutely gorgeous. I cleaned out my car and then opened the house up to let the fresh air in. It was a wonderful day!

Yes, we all do have a little Irish in us - at least on St. Pat's Day. Thanks for the sparkly e-card being sent to us who read your blog. I love those things.

Sounds like a really lovely time.
I am waiting on warm weather here.
We have a nice day here and there, but mostly rain right now.
My girls want to go out and ride their bikes....where is the sun???
