Today, we were supposed to meet with the mommy group at a local Botanical Garden for a Leprechaun hunt. I've been excited about this for over a week! Eleven people were supposed to be there, but of course my new friend, Maureen, and her son were the only ones to show up! We were totally expecting that.
I had to wake Aiden up early to go to the hunt. Every morning we have a struggle over breakfast and we just didn't have much time this morning. So, I offered him the breakfast of champions, cupcakes! He couldn't believe it. His eyes were huge and he jumped out of bed and raced to the table.
I set the clover cupcakes in front of him. He said, "These are perfect! How did you do that?"

The hunt itself wasn't very organized. The staff seemed to be really confused as to what they were supposed to be doing. We kept walking around in circles. And we had to keep waiting for bulldozers, golf carts, and tree cutters to move off the path. It was hilarious!
They had different little areas where the children did little activities like learning an Irish jig, blowing bubbles with a clown, and playing Leprechaun Says.
Finally, we made it to the leprechaun prints. We had to search for different items like a shamrock plant, feathers, rainbows, and gold.
Aiden was so excited about the gold!
Holden slept through the entire walk!
At the end, they had a photo opportunity with a T-rex. Not really sure how that fit in, but the kids enjoyed it!
They finished with a snack (green apples and pears) and got to take home a St. Patrick's Day craft kit.

It turned out pretty cute! We had a really fun St. Patrick's Day! I hope everyone else did as well!
