Feeling green

We like St. Paddy's Day. Due I'm sure to the fact that we have Irish blood running through our veins. At least I'm assuming that's why I'm always drawn to Irish pubs to eat, movies that take place in Ireland, Irish accents, and bagpipes in parades. Go figure.

We had so much fun last year at the St. Patricks Day parade in SLC, that we decided it must become tradition. Unfortunately, this year it was rather cold. Sunny, yes. But a biting wind was whistling through the parade route at The Gateway. We had brought a blanket to sit on but instead used it to wrap around us as we huddled together for warmth. Hot chocolate at Starbucks helped too.

All in all, we had a glorious time decked out in our green and taking in the festivities. Such a fun family activity....we thoroughly enjoyed the bagpipers, the Irish hounds, the Irish dancers and the tons and tons of GREEN!

One of my favorite parade entries...these kilt wearing Star Wars storm troopers advertising the upcoming Comic Con. I laughed good and long.

Can't wait for next year!
