Our boys were especially excited about St. Paddy’s Day this year, because they were going to be in the famous Savannah St. Patrick’s Day Parade with our friends and their family! Bonus – they were reunited with one of their little buddies from LA (before we moved to Texas and they moved to Georgia)!
The parade goes on for hours, going through the streets and around Savannah’s beautiful, Spanish moss-draped squares. Sarah and I were waiting to see our boys (including the adult ones), then we were going to our “tailgate” spot in one of the squares to relax.
The crowds were huge along the parade route!
One fun tradition of the parade in Savannah is that women wear bright lipstick and leave kiss marks on the men of their choice who are walking in the parade. The soldiers and kids always end up with the most lipstick on them! Our boys acted like kisses were “gross,” but secretly wanted all the kisses!
At our “tailgate” spot in the square, the kids ran around and had a lot of good, clean fun for the rest of the parade.
… and the adults had some (less clean) fun, too!
