St. Patty's Parade

Brooke had the idea to go watch the St. Patrick's Day Parade today. It was at the Gateway and it was crazy crowded. I couldn't believe how many people came to see this parade.
My kids were super excited to go, but got bored pretty quickly. I guess groups of people walking down a street isn't that much fun to watch. The best part were the bag pipes. I could listen to them for hours.
And the only place we could find was on a bridge watching the parade leaving.

But I did have to get a family picture of the event.

Brooke was nice enough to invite us and Bridget's family was actually in the parade.

And of course my kids can't pass any escalators without playing on them.

Other highlights of the day included:
  • Eating at Burger King with the playground
  • Visiting Grandpa Brad and Jenny
  • Having a quiet day of work
  • Getting to work out
  • Kids riding their bikes
  • And getting to spend extra time with my fam

Fun! I sympathize with the kids-I actually usually get bored before a parade is over, too. I can't get used to your new hair. So cute!

I didn't know we had a St Patty's day parade. I love the bagpipes at a parade too. I'm the girl who always forgets it's St Patty's and have to get pinched all day.
