Let's Go Irish, Let's Go!

Gracie goes to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School and their mascot is the Fighting Irish, so they try to have a group in the St. Patrick's Day parade. Gracie was in the parade last year and Emmett, Jessie, and I watched from the sidewalk. This year we all got to be IN the parade (I like this better because it's much easier to keep the kids entertained/contained!). We lucked out on the weather and we all had fun. Go Irish!

Snow Monsters

Gracie and Emmett got a couple ski lessons for Christmas and today was their last one. Jason hit the slopes on his own and Jessie and I hung out in the lodge with friends. Emmett got tired a lot and crashed a lot.....I'm sure he'll be adding to the scars on his forehead in the near future. Gracie seemed to be doing pretty well so Jason took her up on a chairlift after the hour later they made it back down to the bottom! :-) Maybe we should try one more lesson before we do that again! Overall, it was a success and when we got home it was 62 degrees - spring!

To the bottom without crashing!
Gracie's turn...
And he crashes....
