670,000 people know how to have fun...

and that's how many were reported to be lining the route of the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland. We were poised precariously on a second story ledge outside a window of our hotel waiting for our Princess and her high school marching band to appear in the crowded street below. They came, they played, they conquered!

Here is a short clip (sorry it looks so fuzzy) of the Best Youth Band: Shorecrest High School Band, Shoreline Washington as awarded by the official St. Patrick's Festival organization.

Congratulations, kids. You did a great job and we were thrilled to be able to see it.

The Drummer Girl concentrating:

These balloons were huge and cool, and right in front of our kids.

What a crowd!

Off to Ireland

to watch the Princess/Drummer Girl's high school band march in the St. Patrick's Day parade in Dublin. It doesn't get much better than that!

See you next week.

Where's the Snow?

Now that the mittens are finished, the Princess looks for the snow.

Come on, bring it on! I know it's out there!

No snow in Seattle today.
