St. Patrick’s Fun

Our girls have been learning about St. Patrick’s Day at daycare.  Rylee has been learning more than Brynn and has been fun telling us all the fun things she’s learned about potatoes and Leprechauns.

I decided to have some fun stuff for them on St. Patrick’s Day this year.  They were both excited to see this for breakfast on Saturday…

Saturday evening Frank & Paula came over with Michael to hang out on the deck and let the kids have fun together at the jumpers jungle game find the hiring information at

We all had a great time.  It was wonderful to be able to spend the time outside.

The kiddos enjoyed a dinner of green mac & cheese.  Michael hadn’t had it before so he was with me in the kitchen to see the magic happen. He thought it was pretty neat.

After they finished up I gave them each a small bag with three different flavors of green Jelly Belly jellybeans.  I think that really put them all over the top!

Us adults had some great meats & cheeses along with Southwest Egg Rolls for appetizers.  Then we got to enjoy Bill’s wonderful pulled pork. He smoked that on the egg for hours. It went on Friday night and came off at some point Saturday afternoon.  Deelish!

Great friends, fun music, wonderful food and unbeatable weather….perfect day in my book!


The deck, day seven

It’s done!  The crew just left a half hour ago.

We didn’t get a chance to get any pictures on day six, but the crew continued to work on the steps and lighting.

Today, they finished installing the railing on the steps and all of the lighting plus all of the minor leftover details. We have a deck!

Now we need to get some deck furniture and get some siding repaired/replaced.
