I love it when a day brings all that is unexpected. Alex and I had planned on waking early this beautiful St. Patricks day to take a drive to one of my favorite places in Pittsburgh--the Strip District. I have written about this place several times before so I will not repeat myself but if you would like to read my post just click here. I don't know where we have been for the past several days, but we were totally unaware that the St Patricks Day parade began right at the Strip. At first we were a bit irritated with all the traffic, crowds, and confusion but the longer we sat in the car we realized we had never been to a St Patricks Day parade before. We quickly parked the car and joined in the fun. First things first, neither one of us were wearing the correct color--Alex in blue and I in orange of all colors. We stopped at one of the street vendors, picked our favorite festive St. Patrick shirt, and did a quick change in their "dressing room". After we had the proper attire we headed off to the parade. Once we had been walking a bit I noticed that we had somehow gotten "behind the scenes" at the parade staging area. What fun to see all the participants before the parade began. I must admit I felt a little like Ferris Beuller participating in a parade in which we were really invited :) As we walked we came across Mr Mcfeely--the speedy delivery man from Mr Roger's neighborhood. What a treat to meet him. He was truly a friendly, kind man---taking time to talk and visit with us.
What a FUN FUN day we had-------
I hope your St Patricks Day was happy and fun too :)
