Saint Patrick's Day

We had a FANTASTIC St. Patty's Day.  The weather here in Cleveland was amazingly warm that week.  It was in the 70s and sunny all week.  No one in Cleveland was complaining.  It was beautiful.  Because St. Patrick's Day fell on a Saturday this year, Josh and I were determined to go to the parade downtown.  We had a blast!  It was super crazy crowded though.  I could not believe how many people were there.  I heard on the radio that they were estimating about half a million people!  It was crazy but fun too see a huge sea of green.

We went with our friends/roommates, the Nebekers.  We had a great time.  The only thing that I didn't like was that there were so many people there that it was hard to see the parade.  We were behind probably 5-6 rows of people. 

Here are some of the pictures we were able to take that looked half way decent.

Gotta love the bagpipes!

Some awsome dancers:

More Dancers.  These kids had to be HOT!  I can't believe they were wearing sweatshirts!

 We really enjoyed the parade, but I'm not sure that we would do it again.  It was just way too crowded.  But that was the first time that I have been to a parade in years!

That afternoon, we met up with all the friends we have that are in our year (4th year podiatry students) for a BBQ and fun and games.  It was a great St. Patrick's Day.  Hope you all enjoyed yours!
