{Irish} for a Day

I am in no way Irish.




I've never even been to Ireland. I have friends that have....but not me. Not that I'm bitter, because I'm not....I'm just stating the facts.


But today...all of that changed. Because...today, my friends... I got to be...


Irish for a day.


So, donning our green.... and armed with water bottles.....we set out to enjoy the festivities of the North Texas Irish Festival.






We decided to take the train into downtown to avoid the hassle of parking.










We saw lots of men wearing kilts....





....we saw the largest Irish Wolfhounds you've ever seen (this picture does not do them justice...they wer HUGE!)...





...watched an Irish parade....






....and ate the most delicious Irish stew ever. Seriously, that stuff was gooood!


YUM. :)

The beard was not my idea...but it's growing on me...simply because I don't think it's going anywhere soon! ;)
