Leprechaun Picnic

This Saturday will mark our fourth annual leprechaun picnic. Each year our family gets together at a local park. The menu usually consists of all things green:

- Sandwiches on green bread, that our local Maceys bakery makes for us.
- Salsa Verde Doritos,
- Cucumber slices
- Green Apple slices
- Jone's Green Apple Soda
- Cupcakes with green frosting and chocolate coins.

Everyone wears green (unless they like to get pinched). We bring our kites and soccer balls and baseball mites and anything else the kids throw in.

For us, it really is our first chance to get out and enjoy the beautiful spring weather. Our kids look forward to it each year. And for something that started for a mom who desperately needed to get out of the house, but could not afford anything to expensive, it seems to be a tradition that they will enjoy for years to come!

And I am excited to say, the weather is suppose to be beautiful!!
