Last week Teagan brought me home some shiny shamrocks as a present, because I wasn’t feeling well.
Today, we sent the girls off to day care with shamrocks on their cheeks. They were so excited! We had put them on before the St. Patrick’s day Shamrock run which NayNay and PopPop ran in. The run was followed by a parade. Yay! Both girls were happy to cheer on the runners, and then settle in for the parade. They are fans of firetrucks and bagpipes. Lots of the floats and marchers threw candy and snacks at the onlookers. That’s also a big draw.
Stu didn’t get to stay around for the parade, unfortunately. He had to get back home and work. But the girls were mostly good, and LaLa, PopPop and NayNay were lots of help.
The girls missed him, and couldn’t wait to tell him about the race, the firetrucks and the bad man who threw half a cookie at them. A crazy, drunk man dressed up as St. Patrick on a float for a bar.
Today, they got to wear their shamrock shirts – wear green day at day care! – and Teagan came home with a green derby. And she found gold (chocolate) coins at the end of the rainbow!
Also, her bruise is turning a lovely shade of green.
Ashlin got some tomato sauce on her face, and looked like a back up singer for Adam Ant. She had a good day, though didn’t get gold coins. She said the leprechaun didn’t visit her room, though there was some talk of a rainbow…
