This is the first year I've ever done anything for St. Patricks day outside of wearing green. However, this year, the Riley family was set to gather at our house - and by golly, with a last name of Riley - we need to do a little bit more than just wear green. At last check, the temperature was 68 degrees in the shade - ohhhhh, what a gorgeous, THANK YOU LORD!, day. Here's a few pics of our special family day:
This is how the kitchen looked when the company came over - the kids were so delighted with the St. Patrick's Day banner....
Mikayla and her cousin, Andie, wearing the special hats Grandma bought and playing with the singing leprachauns - a huge hit!
Andie and Mikayla sharing loves
The kids found the boat in the garage and decided they needed to put on life vests - just in case.....
Alex and Brayden lounging in his room
This is the whole family watching to see if Xavier advanced in the basketball tournament - they didn't - but, I was rooting for them, any team that starts with an X has my vote
Here's the studly men conquering the bbq - the marinated tri-tip turned out SO good!
A rare shot of the whole adult family together - enjoying a whole lot of food.....
No kidding, the kids spent 75% of their time on the trampoline - every adult except the grandparents spent time on there at least once - so good to have it back, what a blast! Hope we don't have to wait another nine months to get everyone together again!!!!
