Happy St. Patrick's Day - Henderson Style!

 These two CRAZY boys want to wish you a very Happy
St. Patrick's Day!!!

How did we celebrate?  What? We celebrated St. Patrick's Day this year - usually just wear the green and leave it at that.  Thanks to our amazing Henderson Arts Council we celebrated in TRUE small town fashion - Arts in the Alley style!!!  The alleys around one block of the city were closed and the celebration began.  Friends of all ages gathered for the first Arts in the Alley of the new year . . .

We enjoyed yummy hot dogs and hamburgers grilled to perfection!! Along with conversation with friends who we see each day and friends we hadn't see in a while (yes, that is possible in a small town), dinner was wonderful!

After eating, we walked the alley to see local artist's vendors - a little of everything.  While we walked, talked and shopped, we listened to live music in the corner.  The kids enjoyed just being out in the beautiful weather, being with friends, and seeing the great artist work.  After walking, talking and shopping, we had to stop at our small town's own Italian gelato shop for amazing Italian (even though it was an Irish holiday) dessert.
 Carter enjoyed Cookies N Cream

 LB enjoyed Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

and we all enjoyed being with the Allen family for the night!

The kids had a great time and have already asked when we can go back! 
We will have to wait for April, kids, but we will be back!
