St. Paddy's Parade

These are a few pictures from the St. Paddy's children's parade. We didn't have a whole lot of green on, but Mahlon had an awesome bow tie and Sara Beth had an Irish Princess tiara...though she didn't wear it long! I think they were a little overwhelmed by all of the people, but they really enjoyed the "marchin' band"(aka the parade) No, there was no marching band, but apparently they saw a parade on TV and thought that all parades had marching bands so they renamed it. This parade featured children dressed up in all kinds of green with decorated strollers, wagons and bikes throwing beads and candy...we just might have to participate next year!

We did get to meet the Chick-fil-a cow(our favorite restaurant) What kills me is that Sara Beth was terrified of the cow, yet she will walk right up to one of Doc's cows and have a full conversation!! Mahlon just needed a little help from daddy to get his picture made!

Inky the clown was there doing all kinds of magic tricks and making balloon animals and he even gave us a magic wand that had a poster inside! We spent most of the afternoon painting our new Inky poster! They love to paint posters or even each other!! Mahlon painted Sara Beth first, then decided he needed a little too!
