St. Patrick's Day Fun #7: St. Patrick's Day Parade!

Saturday we went to a local St. Patrick's Day parade to get into the spirit just a little more. I'll admit it was hard to get into the spirit though with all the rain...not so much fun. :-/

Waiting in the car until the last minute to stay dry.
Blake doesn't usually smile like that middle picture and I kept trying to figure out who the smile reminded me of and it's Alexis's little guy Caden! I've always loved Caden's smile!

The traditional start to the St. Patrick's Day parade.

Blake peaking around his hood to watch.

I just love the excitement in Morgan's face! She's been waiting for another parade since the beginning of December!

Just thought these little girls were cute trying to stay dry :-)

The guy with the flag is a very distant relative of mine. LOVE his hat! ;-)

I liked how this was a float where all you could see (mostly) was umbrella tops and a Celtic cross :-)

Neat pot of gold float.

Dog: "Get me out of this rain!"

Proudly wearing her parade hand-out.

My favorite float-an Irish thatched-roof cottage. Too cute!

We also watched Ladder 49 this last weekend, which was quite fitting between the St. Patrick's Day celebration in the movie and with the recent loss Rich's Fire Chief. Plus Rich grabbed some Lucky Charms cereal for breakfasts that we've been enjoying. We only usually eat cereals like Cheerios, so having some 'kid' cereal around with an Irish theme has been fun! :-)
