Irish Picnic at the Cemetery!

     I wanted to share how I spent my St. Patty's Day. 

     Dad's favorite holiday was St. Patrick's Day...oh my, did he love to wear his green, he would dress from head to toe in green, even his shoes! 

     We decided it would be fun to have a Irish Picnic at the cemetery.

     Brother Ken treated us all to a lovely Irish Dinner...picnic basket and all.... Brought all the fixin's, even dessert which were yummilious Red Velvet Cupcakes.  Too die for!  WOW...that was some kind of pun.  Oh my!!!

     Not the entire family were able to make it, the few of us who did...had a wonderful time eating, visiting, wandering around looking at all the names giving Mom some well deserved exercise.

     Stacey made Grandpa a very special *head board* as she likes to call it.... So creative!  

We enjoy our crazy family times together....wouldn't have it any other way! 

How cute is Mom doing a jig down the road...not bad for 85 years young!!

    I hope you had a wonderful time with your loved ones too!
