Day 684: St. Patrick’s Day Parade Part 2

Can you tell I’m really into St. Patrick’s Day and bagpipers yet? Scott and I went to another parade; the weather was a lot warmer for this one! Here’s another photo of some bagpipers. The parade was nice; I did get hit with A LOT of candy, and the bag of peanuts that hit me hurt a bit, but I’m healed now. (I’m exaggerating about the healing). Here’s a photo of Scott, his dad, and cousin Mickey enjoying the parade:

Scott’s mom made some amazing corned beef and cabbage. It was so good! I made some appetizers, too. I tried making a St. Patrick’s Day punch, but it was pretty bad. It was way too sweet; it tasted like pure sugar! Yuck. I also created a St. Patrick’s Day trivia quiz for everyone; I learned a lot about this holiday! Apparently we are celebrating St. Patrick’s death. That’s a little morbid. Anyway, here are the ladies (Scott’s mom and grandmas) concentrating on the quiz:

A few more posts to come today. Hopefully you have a lot of time to read. 🙂
