Happy St. Patty's Day

We have had amazing weather this week.  We've been busy soaking it up.

Swinging and running and climbing.  It's been wonderful.  Lass wakes up in the morning and one of the first things she says is "'side?  'side?" asking to go out and play.  My girls definitely love to be outside.

I don't think I really even need to describe how much fun we've had in our yard the past few days.  The photos say it better than I could anyway.  But I will say that one of the great things about being outside is that I can often sit in the grass and watch as they get exercise and have a blast running around.  Sitting is my friend right now.  I'm at 39 weeks and large.

We have taken some walks too, as I'm trying to get the ball rolling here, but sitting and blowing bubbles or just watching my girls chase each other, or show off how fast they can run, or play with sticks or whatever. . . Well, it's nice.  I want to be very lazy right now.  Don't judge.

We got decked out in green for St. Patty's day and played outside a lot more today.  It ended up being 80 degrees here.  In mid-March.  Beautiful.

We played with shamrock stickers and ate a special shamrock treat after dinner and took a walk by the lake.

I had purchased a really cute Good Luck Bear Care Bears T shirt for Miss to wear today.  It says, "Hug Me, I'm Irish" and has shamrocks and of course a Care Bear with a shamrock belly badge. I thought she would love it.  She flat out refused to wear it today and instead picked out her own green outfit.
Miss wanted to share a shamrock sticker with her Daddy.

Oh well.  At least the shirt was only $5 from Walmart.  Maybe next year.  And the outfit she picked out almost matched.

We had a fun day.  Nice and lazy and loaded with good family time.  Whether you're Irish or not (I'm not, but my kids are), I hope you had a great St. Patty's Day too.
