Happy St. Patrick’s Day

March 17, 2012

We love our life here in the big city of Atlanta. Well, actually, we live 45 minutes from the real big city, but it’s within distance for fun days like this!

parade

Gotta say St. Patrick showing up for the festivities was a pretty great little touch. Wow! This was a seriously long parade…2 hours! The weather was beautiful though and when the sun finally reached us, Starbucks was nearby for some Strawberries & Creme frappuccinos. YUMMY! Who knew that DQ was just across the street though. We might have ended up there instead. Oh well! The kids didn’t mind. Starbucks is a rare treat (so is DQ these days too though).

Our superstar! Gotta love this girl’s disposition!

kids

We might have been there a really long time, but these kids love to wander around as much as we do. What a fun day downtown!

marta train

And when you live 45 minutes from the city, the Marta train sounds like a really great idea. The kids certainly don’t mind the opportunity. Katie was especially pumped as this time she got to carry her own Breeze card as she is no longer a free passenger on public transit.

chantz

My cousin Chantz arrived Thursday evening for his Friday audition with The Voice. Sadly, he didn’t make callbacks, but we have had a lot of fun with him. It’s seriously been 5 years since we’ve seen him…the kids didn’t remember him. He’s become a quick rockstar in our house this weekend. WOW! What a great voice! We were privileged to have a private serenade of “You Raise Me Up”. STUNNING!! A few impromptu street performances were fun too!

Star Wars arrived just in the time to save Michael from losing complete interest in the parade. As luck would have it, the parade pause happened right in front of us so there was lots of galactic gazing.

822 miles away and she insists on treating us to dinner. Thanks Aunt Sherry (and Uncle Bart)! You really should promise to come with Chantz next time. Love you and miss you! Bahama Breeze for dinner never disappoints.

Katie has had fun trying her hand at limericks. Oh the many versions we’ve heard in the car, procrastinating on her schoolwork, over meals, and of course written and read with such pride! Here’s her first written attempts at limericks.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from all of us.

(BTW…this was Clare’s first handprint! I am mighty proud…at 8 months and with slimey paint smeared all over her palm, she instinctively clenched her fist and yet I was able to smash that tiny and oh so determined hand onto the canvas just in time. Yep. I’m officially claiming success!)
