It has come to this.
I didn't post on St. Patrick's Day.
I had a whole, awesome post planned, from breakfast to evening. I was going to take pictures of my adorable outfit (hee!) and show off how everyone in my family wears green. (we take the Saint Patrick's Day tradition very seriously. If you don't wear green you will get pinched....... by everyone.)
But we spent most of the day outside and then we had semi-unexpected guests for dinner. (Corned beef and cabbage.... whaaaaaat!) The picture taking went down from there. :) It was, overall, a really lovely day, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Have you ever heard of a game called "Crack the Case"? It's a really awesome detective game where one person reads out a case and everyone else needs to figure out the mystery. It's really, really fun. Great for big groups with Sherlockian Minds. *nods knowingly.* I can only play a few rounds at a time, because after a while, I start to get really creeped out. Some cases get super, super scary. Wheeeeeeeee!
See my outfit!? lol
*blush.* Yes, that is a video of me. Boxing it out on St. Patrick's Day. Jab, Jab, DEATH! (jabs are very important, FYI.)
And now.... today is Saint Joseph's Day.
And it's a big enough feast day for Catholics that we slack a little bit in our Lenten penances and have a good time. So, today we went on a picnic. With ham, and cheese, and trail mix, and chips, and cookies, and coffee, and lemonade, and cocoa. It's a PICNIC! We don't eat healthily on picnics, okay!? But there were apples.
We found out that in Italy, apparently on St. Joseph's Day, everyone wears red, like green for St. Patrick's. Hence everyone was wearing various shades of red. We're weird.
We ate, and flew kites and played soccer, and playground tag. For some reason, with us, fun includes food. Lots and lots of food. We're Italian. *wink*
Start singing the Winnie the Pooh theme song:
Deep in the hunnnndred aaacre wood........
Bella thinks crawling through the tube is for wimps.
For the record, because it was fairly chilly and overcast, this particular park was empty and we ran around it with reckless abandon without the fear of killing other people's kids. Heh. Heh. Heh.
Monkey see, monkey do.
Then we came home, watched a Psych (Heeeere's Lassie!) and ate a scrumptious meal. Yes. We eat a lot. But who wouldn't want to eat Chicken Parmesan and Spaghetti?
And now we're watching another Psych and drinking coffee and eating more cookies.
Wow. We really do eat a lot!
ALSO!!!! As an aside, if you like the Hunger Games, go check out Jonnah's blog.
She's having a really, really awesome giveaway, and it's.... well I want it. :)
And now I will go.
