St. Patrick's Day Weekend

Our St. Patrick's Day weekend was the perfect mix of action and relaxation. This is one of the first weekends in a while that didn't seem to fly by.

On Friday Ben had a party at school. We switched pre-schools last Summer and it was the best decision we could have ever made. He loves it, the school always does fun activities, they have class parties for every "holiday" and almost all the parents come to them. 

His St. Patty's outfit, complete with socks and all.

I made these mini shamrock brownie bites to bring to the party.

That night our town was turning on one of the big outside fountains. They had a family folk band, clowns, balloons, and bubbles. My sister had to work that night and J had to finish some work so my parents went with Ben and I.



Saturday morning we woke up bright and early and I ran in the St. Patrick's 5k.

Ben was my cheerleader and just like when I ran my 1/2 marathon we screamed, "go momma, go!" as I came into the finish.

That afternoon, a tiny little green man was scurrying about our house. He peed in our toilet, turning the water green, and helped himself to some milk and lucky charms, before leaving a few gold coins and running off.

He also left his picture on our cereal box, that sneaky little leprechaun.

Our St. Patrick's day ended in style with this rainbow Sunday morning. Now only if I could have figured out where that pot of gold was.

  1. I didn't see that rainbow, but how cool that it would appear St. Patty's day weekend! Your weekend posts always make me excited about all the fun things we will get to do with Silas when he is older.
