Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Today was a beautiful day and Little Man even had the day off from school so we made the best of it!

First we went grocery shopping, Little Man would probably say that was the worst part of the day :)

After lunch we made pine cones again. Here is one of them:

Then we went to the park to slide

and swing.

Then we came home for a snack and we decided to make a picnic out of it.  Little Man loves picnics and has been wanting to have one for quite some time.

After our snack we washed Little Man’s wagon-it needed it.

While the sun was doing its job and drying the wagon we made the dough for our cookies.

After you wash a wagon you HAVE to go for a ride in it…

(He is in mid-song here)

A ride to another park.

Then we walked back home slowly enjoying the sun on our backs

After taking my mom to her Tango Class we stopped to get invites for Little Man’s b-day and look at yarn at Joann. 

Yep, i got some yarn but it’s not for me-it’s for Steggie. I know i said i was gonna hold of on it but i think it will be a quick knit, he really wants it and Mommy is weak and can’t say no.  It’s Vanna’s Choice, one of the only yarns that had all the colors Little Man wanted.  The colors are a little different then in the pattern but not much.

After we got home it was almost bedtime but i quickly frosted the cookies so we could have one on the day they were meant for. My planning was a bit off with the cookies today but it was all worth it and we had a great day. I hope you all did too.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

The recipes for the cookies is here.  I made a small change, I left out the Almond extract and put in some lemon juice and lemon zest. I also added some lemon juice to the frosting.  Super Yummy-one of the best sugar cookies i have had so far.

  1. What a wonderful way to spend a day! *^v^*
    No wonder Little Man wanted the picnic so badly, picnics are great fun and I’ve been also dreaming about them all Winter! ^^
    Wow, a clover cookie cutter, nice!
    It’s great you’re knitting Steggie, the designer had a really good idea with this cardigan.

  2. FUN cookies!! You are the best mom ever!! :)

    I am working with Vanna’s Choice right now on the afghan (but it is so splitty with a hook). Also plan to use it on a baby blanket but knitted. Hope that works out better!
