Saturday was St. Patrick's Day. In my family St. Paddy's is a legit holiday. My Dad used to let me leave school early to attend the parade each year. It was amazing. St. Paddy's is a bit of a drunk fest to begin with, but since it fell on a Saturday things were crazier than usual this year. Well for the rest of the world, for me it was incredibly tame. We decided to forgo the parade & dyeing of the river since it was bound to be crazy crowded. Instead we opted for a picnic at the playground, which was divine. Later in the day we drove out to our friends Ben & Tina's new house for a backyard BBQ. They have a real live backyard now. Color me jealous!!!

Sunday was another amazing day. Timmy & I went to swimming lessons in the morning then we came back home to pick up Daddy & Henry to head out for a walk. Tim discovered a little playground by Belmont Harbor with swings and play boats so we thought we'd walk down to the lake and check it out. It was wonderful. How we've lived so close for 5 years and never discovered this is beyond me! The boys had a great time!
