It is family tradition, so to say, to attend a St Patricks Day Parade in Houston each year. It is always held on a Sunday. We have enjoyed it since Jakob was a baby. Paul attended the same parade in the same location when he was a child. This year was very interesting because they have added a median down the middle of a several lane road. I think it really added to the parade because it allowed for more entries of floats etc. We had a really good time. Afterward we went to Paul's brothers house and ate a shrimp/crawfish boil. Zekaryah and his friend actually got in the pool. I think at one point their lips were blue for sure. The water was just a tad cold. This was the first year I actually got shirts. Normally I plan to but then the parade sneaks up on us. I think Mekenzei once again cleaned house- with the most beads snagged.
