Happy St. Patty's Day!

It was a beautiful day to celebrate St. Patty's Day in the Northeast.  Blue skies and crisp spring weather.  Our intentions were to head into NYC for the parade, but a birthday party through a wrench in things.  We took the kids to our favorite diner for lunch and then had a walk through downtown Stamford.  That's when we came upon the green fondue.  Boy did the kids love that.

Speaking of all things Irish.  Katie Faye has been begging to take Irish step dance for over a month now.  Since we are not Irish, I kind of ignored the requests-- wrongly assuming that we couldn't/ shouldn't take the class.  Well, two weeks ago, our home office became a riverdance studio as KF began teaching herself reels and steps off of u-tube.  Quite entertaining.  The next riverdance phase included KF agreeing to only wear green and preferably shorter skirts (with cartwheel shorts underneath) to school so she could teach her friends these moves.  So, last week, in an effort to regain my dance studio...I mean office...I signed her up for a test class at Pender- Keady and she LOVED it.  The founders of the studio performed in the Broadway Cast of "Riverdance" and one also performed in the original cast of "Lord of the Dance" -- one of the perks of living so close to NYC.  So, suffice to say, we have just purchased KF her black slippers and she'll start her new class next week.

Erin go Bragh!

PS:  When we got home, our funny friends on Red Rose left us a goodie bag of Irish treats...whistles, green tape, note pads, Stickers, Play Doh.  This was a great play on the "boos" that we got at Halloween.  Thank you K's!!!!

  1. Samantha has been begging me to sign her up for Irish dance for years. I just assumed she would be too far behind.
