We left a treat for our Leprechaun instead of trying to trap him this year!
He liked that and left the kiddos a scavenger hunt.
It took them all over the place. They even had to climb a tree!
Eventually they found themselves digging in Ya-Ya's garden for the burried gold.
Then it was time for our traditional breakfast. I think this is their favorite part of St. Patrick's Day!
And I threw dinner in the crock pot.
We went to the library and ran some errands but only after taking St. Pat's Day pictures.
I like to make our food green. BUT I'm not a big fan of food coloring so we had cheese quesadillas on spinach tortillas and guacamoli. We love guacamoli...to bad it is NOT photogenic!!! Do you like how I made it into a clover? Yeah, I'm creative like that.
As much as I wanted to avoid food coloring, you can't have St. Patty's day without green jello. And we kind of had a rainbow thing going on this year so I thought this idea was fun.
Dinner was SO good. Corned beef, cabbage, carrots and potatoes and Irish soda bread. We were all talkin' Irish after this!!!
And then a Leprechaun float for dessert!
It was a fun day with lots of traditions! I love holidays.
