St. Patty’s Day Parade

Today we went to the St.Patty’s Day Parade here in our town, now normally there are a TON of people that show up. So much that there are like three rows of people, one behind another on the sidewalks. This was not the case today, at least not when there was rain coming down. But before heading out, which we were walking (remember the car broke down) we prepared everyone with umbrellas, warm clothes and jackets. The stroller we had a blanket and pillow in and went on our merry way…of course we checked Facebook to see if the parade was still on. (they’d been announcing it all day)

Noticing there weren’t many people there we started wondering, but decided to stay anyways at least until 1:30. The parade was suppose to start at 1pm but with the rain ya never know. The kids sat under a pavilion to keep from getting wet, by this time it was just sprinkling so we weren’t very worried about it. Once the parade start I looked under the stroller and found Little A sleeping, there was no way I would wake him for this.

My other three went up to the yellow tape and waited patiently for it to begin. They each had their favorites too. BabyGirl of course liked watching the horses come down the street and the little dancers. BalletGirl was impressed by a red car that went by, it stopped right in front of us and she shouted:
“Mom, I’m going to have that car one day.” (check out that car, my girl has some expensive taste)
SoccerBoy liked watching the flame throwers, which I must say was also my favorite part. Of course I think their other favorite part was catching all the loot.

    A flame thrower! How cool. I got to try twirling a lit baton back when I took baton as a kid, that was fun. Very, very warm.

    I'm glad that you guys had a fun outing. :0

  2. How cool! I've never been to a St. Patrick's Day parade! Never lived in a town that was gig enough to have one, lol!
