A Fun St. Patrick's Party

For all of us in the family, it was our first ever St. Patrick's Day Party! We went to our friends Melanie and Daryll's house and they had it decorated up all nice and lots and lots of glorious food! Daryll prepared a perfect corned beef with cabbage, red potatoes, carrots, dilled potatoes, a selection of mustards and pickles, sausages on the grill outside, salad, Irish soda bread with fresh Irish butter.... and that's not including the variety of desserts that were brought in or the huge tray of fresh shrimp brought by one of the guests to enjoy as an appetizer. YUMMY! Oh and did I mention all the wine and beer and other lovely drinks? I stuck mostly with iced green tea because I'm not much of a drinker during the heat of the day (and it got close to 80F)

Aidan was such a good boy too. All the guests enjoyed him - he may challenge us at home throwing tantrums and constantly testing his mommy and daddy, but around others he's an angel!! We were so proud of him. At one point he was sitting around the table with all the men who were drinking, and he had his sippy cup in hand and a plastic St. Patrick's Day hat on - he was one of the ole boys. So cute.

Lots of fun. But today I'm going to go light on the food because I way over-indulged on the key lime pie. It was heavenly!!!!
