St. Pat's 2012

Our St. Patrick's Day started with the discovery that a leprechaun had visited our house last night and scattered a rainbow throughout our house! Once we found all of the pieces of the rainbow, we were led to a 'pot of gold' containing a golden certificate for ice cream later on! Woo! I got the idea (and free printables!) here. The kids LOVED it!

After breakfast, Big Daddy had to head out to a house auction and ML and I got ready for the St. Patrick's Day parade.

My parents joined us at the parade and we had a great time.

After the parade, we all headed out to have some corned beef and cabbage.

The plan was to head back out to one of Big Daddy's neighborhoods to watch the second annual 'dying of the fountain' like last year, but we got home and Big Daddy got into his upstairs project:

and we just never made it back.

We did however, redeem those 'golden tickets' for ice cream!

Hope your St. Pat's was as great as ours!
