We went to the St. Patty's Day parade yesterday and the weather was amazingly awesome. Not a cloud in the sky, a slight breeze, and a warm sun on our backs. I think the whole city was out - the streets were jam packed. A sea of green, balloons escaping from the clutches of chubby little hands.
Of course the parade time was smack in the middle of Violet's nap, so we had to wake her up and she was less than enthused until the sound of the drums could be heard in the distance. Then she was alert and ready to be thrilled by each new float that passed us by. She alternated between shouting, 'More more!', clapping, waving, and screaming, 'STOP!' trying to keep the performers in front of her stroller by sheer force of will. When the last float drifted past, the last trumpet sounded, the last curly-haired dancer twirled past, she was crushed. But we spent the rest of the afternoon at the park, picking violets, and looking for four leaf clovers. It was that perfect kind of spring day.
Linking up with Mandy over at the Haps for Steppin Out Saturday!
