jack-st-patricks-day-2013-07I haven’t been to a parade in forever, so I thought it would be fun to head downtown to Constitution Avenue with the family for some St. Paddy’s Day fun. We had so many layers on because the temperature was downright chilly and misty, and I swear we were decked out in green from head-to-toe, although you can’t really tell. The day started off a little questionable. Jack was not feeling very proud of his Irish heritage, but after we got out of the house, his moody behavior faded as we cheered on the Irish step dancers, the Shriners doing tricks in their miniature cars, and various ROTC groups. I’m a sucker for marching bands, as I participated in my high school’s marching band all four years (I’m sayin’ it loud and proud!). While we watched the floats go by, Daryle remembered his grandfather loved parades and it made me love the idea of starting a new tradition for our son, Jack to remember when he looks back at his young days with his mom and dad. Hope you had a fun St. Patrick’s Day!
