We’ve just returned from a fabulous weekend in the Windy City. The best way to spend the first true “spring” weekend, IMO, is to take a red headed, blue eyed baby to a St. Patrick’s day Parade. Seriously!!! So much attention, so much fun. It was the SouthSide Irish Parade–a little neighborhood gala that attracts 250,000 people (no joke) annually to watch revelers go down Western Avenue. It’s an annual reunion of sorts…we see people we only see at the parade, run into people we haven’t seen in forever, all while watching bagpipes and Irish Dance Schools do their thing. More later…just wanted to stop by and say hi and get at least one picture posted!! Want more?? Click here! Don’t mind the drunken fools and all the trash in the background!
