the real day

i promise this will be the last of the st. patrick's day posts until next year, but it is what it is.  we had to celebrate a little on the actual day, as well...
the kids had a little treasure hunt for their pot of gold...


mary and zach brought over corned beef for dinner.  i decided since potatoes are a very irish food i would make potato salad...



and i didn't know what to do with cabbage, so i decided on brussel sprouts.  they kind of look like mini-cabbage...



and thanks to sara's recipe, we made irish soda bread.  lucy put cinnamon in hers and we glazed it and ate it with breakfast.  kind of an "irish cinnamon roll."



and we had our last family dinner in the pub...



and got a final family picture on the photo wall...



hope everyone enjoyed this irish holiday as much as we did!
