Last Saturday was St. Patrick's Day, and we brought the kids and a picnic lunch to a nearby state park. I can't believe how close this beautiful park is but we've never gone! Ryan and I decided we needed to go at least once a month to see how it changes over the year, but while it's beautiful right now, my allergies are killing me. In fact, for awhile there I was certain this would be the year that my allergies actually do kill me! It's a price to pay for the kids to experience outings like this... They loved it!
