Kiss Me...I'm Irish-Cajun!!

Yesterday was a great day! We have never been to the St. Patrick's Day parade here, but it is a huge parade! There were over 70 floats!! Bryce marched in this parade with the Sea Cadets. Wesleigh and I were planning to go, but Braden's team ended up not playing until the evening, so Richard got to come along. Thank goodness!!! It's alot of work, and I was thrilled he was with us. Plus...Daddys are just more fun!!

This is where the floats lined up. The street is lined with Oak trees. It is absolutely beautiful! There were tons of people everywhere.

My handsome Bryce. I could just eat him up in this uniform!! They marched right behind the US Navy band...he was thrilled!!

My baby has definitely passed me up. It kills me and makes me so proud all at the same time.

This organization has been amazing for Bryce. It fits him perfectly and I am so thankful we found it. Look how handsome they all are!

You can't really tell, but she loves to rub Richard's head when she's up there. So cute!

The first of about 10 stuffed animals she got. She definitely hit the jackpot! She loved each and every one and was so thrilled.

Daddy needed some bling!

"Throw me somethin' mister!!" She got the system down pat. She would wave...people would hand stuff to her daddy and he would give it to her. He would hold the beads up and she would put them over her head...adorable. I kept having to take beads off of her because there were so many.

I don't have a clue how other parts of the country do parades, but this is how they're done here. Let's just say that the people on these floats were feeling no pain :) (and this parade started at 10am!!)

Rarely are the two of us alone with just Wesleigh. It was alot of fun. I think Gracie is going to have a blast next year! The only problem is that Richard needs another set of shoulders!!!

Braden doesn't play until the afternoon today, so we actually get to go to church! It's great baseball weather, so we're looking forward to a great day at the ballpark!!

*As I'm sitting here typing this, Wesleigh dropped some scrambled eggs on the couch. Braden told me about it and when I walked over there, W said Braden did it!!! LOL.... So funny!!!

That looks a lot of fun! Being Irish (now living in Scotland though!) I am always amazed at the efforts Americans go to for St Patrick's Day! Dx
