St Patrick's Day all Around

I took Victoria to see the parade today. It was fun and short, but nice because the weather is turning hot, oh nooo, I can't think of the hot weather... so let's talk about St Patrick's Day! The first time I actually paid any attention to St Patrick's was when I lived with a couple of Irish girls and we hung out in an Irish pub, of course. Then I managed an Irish restaurant/pub and there was no forgetting St Patrick's then. I know one year I worked for about 20 hours, got in to work around 7am and left about 3am the next day. Exhausting, but fun!

I was looking through my photos and I couldn't find any from my past life in the DC area, which I'm shocked about honestly...

And this year, we were in sunny AZ, we didn't even have to hurry too much in the morning... got there, it had started, but we could choose a place (shade please), to sit down, yeap! The whole Irish community came out to celebrate :-)

This was our St Patrick's day in Phoenix:
