the green tide rolls in

So yesterday after hosting a sleepover (which was quite successful I might add) we decided we would just hop downtown real quick and catch the St. Patrick's Day parade. No big deal, right?
 A few other people had the same idea. O'Migosh! I can't remember the last time I attended an event so densely populated (says the introvert with an aversion to big crowds). It was really fun and there were blocks and blocks of quality people watching - if you like that kind of thing. And most importantly, we did not lose our four year old who likes to stop and pick up every green feather or sparkly thing that might have been found on the ground. Who also, I might add, does not like to hold a grown up's hand and will loudly protest such indignities to anyone who will listen. Had he escaped us we would have been forced to ask people to help us find a 'little boy in a green shirt' hmmm....
So, even though it stopped us from enjoying the unbelievable weather - we opted to watch from the skyway. Being a part of such a large celebration was a great way to spend the afternoon but I admit to being totally exhausted by the end of the day. I fell asleep on the couch twice and even forgot to have a celebratory drink to mark the occasion. *sigh* what would my Irish ancestors say?

Can you imagine?!?! Talk about a parent's and police officer's nightmare . . .
