Happy Saturday, everyone!!! I’ve really been looking forward to this weekend! Most of you probably enjoyed St. Patrick’s Day festivities on Thursday, but we had fun celebrating today!
I started the day off early. I had to hurry to catch the Blue Line to Uptown Charlotte for the St. Patty’s Day Parade… nope… not to WATCH it… to be IN it!
I was really excited to do this. The Charlotte St. Patty’s Day parade is really huge, with 30,000-50,000 spectators! Wow!
The weather was gorgeous! Take a look at these blue skies!
Ryan and Sadie took a later train so that they could watch the parade. They were joined by a few friends… who also really enjoyed the ride! This was Sadie’s first trip on the light rail. She was excited to ride the train to “the big city” and enjoy the parade and festival!
We rehearsed our dance a few times, and soon our group was off! We were headed down Tryon Street, handing out bracelets to the crowd, singing, dancing, and just living it up.
That’s me, right in the middle.
Just as we reached the end of the parade, I spotted my little munchkin, so I scooped her up and let her finish the parade with me.
Then it was time for some fun… a few rides…
and lunch at Five Guys in the Epicentre.
What a fun Saturday! I wish we could do it all again! I love that we are so close to Charlotte and can enjoy the “big city.” It would probably be really fun to live there. I think Charlotte is one of the prettiest, cleanest cities.
