Paddy's Day

In case you didn't know, it's St. Patrick's Day today!!! This may possibly the most widely celebrated national day around the world! Considering how tiny our little country is it is amazing just how many countries across the world hold celebrations and parades to celebrate this day, monuments around the world turn green tonight in honour of "Paddy's Day" and it is a lot of fun!

This was our first St. Patrick's Day back in Ireland with our boys. Rather than brave the queues and chaos of the parades we decided to take a lovely brisk hike in the Dublin mountains and enjoy the beautiful scenery we are so lucky to have (after a full Irish breakfast of course).  There was lots for our boys to explore and discover and we met lots of other families along the way who had the same idea. Later on we went for lunch (yummy seafood chowder) in our local.

This evening's treats include toasted marshmallows and warm milk.

All in all a perfect day :-)

And of course it wouldn't be Paddy's Day without a bit of silliness :-)
