they dye the river green!

In honor of my favorite excuse-to-day-drink day of the year, I thought I would share with y'all my favorite St. Patrick's Day, circa 2009, to date

Ever since I learned that Chicago dyes it's rivers green for St. Patrick's Day it was something I wanted to do and see.  So, while husband and I were in town visiting family and for the Chicago Half Marathon the previous September, we started slowly plan how we could make that happen.  

I love my extended family.  We try to make a point to see each other at least once a year, even though it has gotten harder over the years.  We all get along really well and have always have a blast when we do get together.  So I figured this would be a great excuse to get the family together for a mini family reunion and to celebrate the small percentage of our Irish blood.  

As I expected, and foggily fondly look back on, it was a great day of dancing, green beer, and laughing with some of my favorite people.

Uncle Bobby!  And yes, he is wearing jeans with a jean jacket.  He is still one of the coolest adults I know though:)

Hands down, my favorite St. Patrick's Day.  However, most nights end like this when we are visiting our family in Chicago.  And I wouldn't have it any other way:)
