Happy St. Patrick's Day

Today was the St. Patrick's Day parade in Elmhurst -- the third-largest in Illinois!

The weather was clear and sunny and the parade was really fun. The parade lasted nearly two hours and included traditional Irish musicians, horses, lots of dogs -- many of whom were being walked by would-be politicians since the election is on Tuesday -- and four or five groups of little girls doing traditional Irish dances. The funniest entry thought was the "Precision Lawn Chair Dads.' (See photo toward the bottom.) They march along in their finest backyard attire and then stop and do a little routine to music with their lawn chairs. I tried to convince Eric that he should be a Lawn Chair Dad but surprisingly he wasn't interested.
