The Wearin' of the Green

I was on my own this weekend as my husband and son were on a Boy Scout camping trip. I had some business in downtown Colorado Springs Saturday, and happened upon the annual Saint Patrick's Day parade.

It was a beautiful, sunny day in the high 50's - low 60's so everyone, it seems, came out to see the 6 mile parade. I started taking photos of some of the more spirited onlookers:

This little doggie says, "I'm mortified."

Based on the conversation we had, I think this little leprechaun had been hitting the Irish Whiskey!



A flock of chickens looks on...

while these horses wait patiently for their turn on the promenade.

Have you ever seen so many DeLoreans in one place?!

This one's my favorite. I think that little one thinks she has the best daddy in the world -- right down to his green cowboy boots!

How much fun was that to run into a parade. I was in a small town in Utah and stopped to get a milkshake (they have awsome milkshakes there. You can't drive through Heber City without stopping at Grandmas for a shake.) I was sitting on the back of my truck eating when the Homecoming parade set up in the street. I could have hurried to get away before the parade but I stayed and enjoyed it. It brought back memories of my own homecoming. So much fun.

I love these photos Laurie. My favorite is the mortified basset hound. I'm getting ready to mortify my own two dogs with some greenery for a blog post tomorrow. They don't know what they're in for. ;o)

Happy St. Patty's Day! I love that poor doggie, and from the looks of it, the leprechaun just below him should be mortified, too! :D
