Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
Wow, it's hard to believe how much can change in just a few short years. It seems like just yesterday we made all our friends dress up in green so that we could say "I do" on our most favorite holiday.
And now here we are, living in the suburbs and going out to dinner at 5:00 for the early bird special so we can get our baby home in time for bed.
Seriously though, Stew did take me out to a fancy steak dinner at the Woodman Lodge in Snoqualmie to celebrate our third wedding anniversary, and it was actually kind of fun to be there so early, because we had the place virtually to ourselves. And Ryder was such a well-behaved little gentleman!
And this year we also took Ryder along on another of our favorite St. Paddy's Day traditions: the Seattle St. Patrick's Day Dash. Unfortunately the weather was less than cooperative, so it was more of a soggy walk through the rain than a "dash" this time, but Ryder was a trooper and seemed to have a lot of fun!
Those festivities actually happened the weekend prior, so of course we also had to celebrate just a little on March 17 proper.
Ryder and I got dressed up in our best...
And I made Stewart a traditional Irish dinner of corned beef, mashed potatoes, roasted Brussels sprouts, and Guinness (of course).
We just keep getting luckier and luckier as our love grows throughout the years.
You've still got whatever it is, Stew.
