Savannah is not a big city. Savannah loves holidays. Savannah really loves St. Patrick's Day.
I'm not kidding. It is a Big Deal here with a capital B. But what does that really mean?
St. Patrick's Day is Savannah's Mardi Gras. Complete with beads. Hotels book up months and months in advance. February kicks off the festivities and they last through March 17th. Our beautiful fountains even spout green water weeks ahead of time. I think people start drinking about a month ahead of time. We have the second largest parade in the country and today it ran for almost 4 hours. That's a lot of floats.
Every year Dove and I say, let's just stay home this year and avoid the crazyness. And every year we go, and every year we have a blast!
The Boys loved it this year! They had their green and beads on and got little play trumpets and danced and played with the bands and cheered for the parade! At one point tons of Army soldiers were marching by and a soldier came over and gave each of them a dog tag. They were so cute and pround of their gifts, they wouldn't let go of them for a long time!
We stayed for about 3 1/2 hours, then went to McDonald's for Daddy's favorite drink, a Shamrock Shake. All of the Boys got one.
After that we came home and napped, well 5/6th's of us did, Daddy worked in his studio.
It was a great time and a great day.
I love my life!
