Okay, maybe not Ireland, but Scotland very possibly. Next year, my parents will be in London and Noah and I are saving up so we can stop by for a visit, pinch me!
As for yesterday's green festivities, they didn't turn out quite as I had planned . . . the kids and I got stuck in the house on the most beautiful day of the year waiting for our new computer monitor to arrive--it arrived at 5:16PM, just as Noah was getting home from work. Some luck! At that point, I still hadn't gone grocery shopping so I didn't have our dinner ready (zucchini pasta and leprechaun punch) until after 7:00 PM. Alas we had no green balloons hanging from our ceiling--I forgot to buy them--and we didn't play water balloon volleyball because Noah is still sick, poor guy.
The day was not a total loss though thanks to my good friend Janell (Sean's mom) who took my kids to the park, saving them from complete boredom. So in friends, we are truly lucky!
And the leprechaun punch was a hit.
