St. Patrick's Day {2015}

We love to wear our green for St. Patrick's Day.  With Evan's birthday so close to St. Patrick's Day and with his fair skin, red hair, and blue eyes, he has always been my little leprechaun.  This year, we enjoyed dressing our littlest leprechaun up in green too.  Could anything be cuter than a baby boy wearing a St. Patrick's Day green shamrock diaper cover and a green gingham bow tie?  I think not. Along with the chaos of moving to a new town and a new house with a new baby, Evan has been on his Spring break this month with his new school's year round schedule.  Next week will be his last week of his break and then he will start his new school.  I feel like I must ensure he gets to have a little fun during his break although it is a little difficult to get out with a new baby.  Tuesday was a beautiful day, and our local weather was forecasted to turn back cold on Wednesday so I thought we needed to get out and have a little fun for the day.  We headed up into Raleigh to eat lunch with Daddy and then went over to Pullen Park to ride the train and other rides.  Yes, this was the park we visited just a few weeks ago in the snow and ice.  What a different scene it was!  It was pretty crowded and felt almost like summer.  We even enjoyed a little ice cream treat after riding the rides.  And yes, I am pretty sure Mattox was one of the youngest riders on the train and the carousel.

First, we had to take pictures for Mattox's 2 week photo shoot.

Love how they were looking at each other and laughing together.  They have their moments, of course, but they really do enjoy one another.

Mommy and her babies.  I was feeling very festive and even wore my old shamrock earrings.

Mattox rode too.  He just didn't like having to get taken out of his stroller.  Mommy didn't have a choice since she was on her own and had to ride with the boys.

I am pretty sure Evan was a little old for this ride, but they didn't say anything to him and let him ride.

Brody loved driving the boats.

Brody was very brave riding the carousel.  He rode on a rabbit for mommy.  This little carousel is indoors and is so pretty.

Evan chose to ride his favorite, the ostrich.  He likes that they are very fast animals and compares them to himself since he loves to run.

My sweet little Mattox's first carousel ride. 


  1. OK, so I am way, way, way, WAY behind on commenting and way, way behind on reading. I've just been apathetic about my own blogging which, unfortunately, tends to spill over into other blogs too.

    OMG- Mattox is just the cutest little leprechaun ever. It's going to be so fun to watch him experience all of his first holidays the year. Elliott was 9 days old for his first Christmas, which was his first holiday, so Mattox was not much older for his. And his first carousel ride. What a big day!

  2. Okay, I LOVE your necklace. And Mattox in the bowtie -- squeee!!!


Leave some love! Your comments make me happy!
