I feel like the weekend with Ethan and Sydney was all about FIRSTS! And I loved that we got to be a part of that!

We got up early Saturday morning (again in March) and geared up in our green! I was trying to be SUPER COUSIN by making sure I had drinks and snacks packed for our outing...
We drove to one of the DART bus stops and waited for a bus to take us to the St. Patty's Day Parade on Greenville Ave. (Thank you, Mark Cuban!!). Last year Ryan and I watched the parade from the patio of a bar...we didn't think this was appropriate for the kids so we just got good standing room on the street! And boy did we have a good spot! We were about 2 hours early so we were right in front!

Of course once the crowds got bigger our space got a lot tighter. It was fun for the kids though. Sydney was loving holding her hands out and arms up hoping for beads! Ethan was picking up anything he could that was thrown at him! Tortillas, coupons, unwrapped candy...LOL! It was their first parade and I believe it was a success!

It was my first time on the DART, and what a day to try it out! We had the same idea as everybody else! Which is somewhat of a relief...thinking hopefully those people made the wise decision to not drive...People can be extremely helpful getting on and off the DART bus or can be extremely rude!! Nonetheless it was a fun experience!

So after I packed all the drinks and snacks...well we didn't think about, when a child drinks...they have to go potty! When the kids noticed that our only options were Porta Potties they didn't want much to drink! And then with all the pushing and shoving it was pretty difficult to pass out snacks! So I'm sorry, Aunt Laura, we sent them back: thirsty, hungry, and tired! But thanks for sharing them with us. :)
