Green Day Parade

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you might remember me mentioning that St. Patrick's Day is Hope's #2 favorite holiday.  This year she's trying to decide if it rivals Christmas (what?!).  She's really into it.  Saturday we took the girls to the local St. Paddy's Day parade and although she didn't want to get fully decked out in green since "it's not ACTUALLY Green Day" the girls had fun all the same.  I think this may have been Poe's first parade ever, and her favorite things were the candy and the fact that everyone waves to you.  She looked like she thought everyone was there just to say hi to her-- it was adorable.  My favorite parts were the baby goats in tutus (!!!) and the roller derby girl who jumped over 3 people.  It was awesome.

I'm heading into a day where, in our house, Hope only allows green food, the leprechauns run wild, and you'd better get SOMETHING green on your body, because she is not afraid to pinch!  Happy St. Patrick's Day, friends!


  1. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

  8. How cute that she's so into St. Paddy's Day! I'm someone who really enjoys celebrating each holiday, not just the "big" ones, so I can really appreciate that (:

  9. Haha, Hope sounds like me as a kid (although I never thought St. Patrick's Day rivaled Christmas). I loved all holidays growing up and was absolutely determined to go all out and celebrate all of them to the max. Poe is so cute in that picture! Glad they had such fun!

  10. Thats so sweet! But almost rivaling christmas ! WHAT?! Each to their own! Im glad you had a great day

  11. Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! I'm with Hope - St. Pat's is my absolute favorite holiday! :-)

  12. Poe is the sweetest! I lived in Ireland for a year so Paddy's day always feels special to me :) The parade looks like a lot of fun too!

  13. I didn't have a chance to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, but these pictures remind me of all the years we would watch the parade come by and it was a blast. Thanks!
