18 SepShamrocks, Money & Dragons

After a workout at the Y Saturday morning, Tom and I headed off to Irish Fest. We used to go when we were first dating, it’s a nice event for a newly dating couple. We haven’t been in about five years and went back this weekend. It was a beautiful day. We caught an amazing performance by an Irish Dance Troop from Chicago and met up with friends to listen and dance to the band Seven Nations.

On Sunday I was part of the “money room” team for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. I volunteered through work to be part of the team that counted donations from the day’s walkers. I have participated in walks before and this was an interesting, behind the scenes twist to a walk day.


Count de Monet!

Sunday afternoon we went to our nephew’s 6th birthday party. I asked him a few weeks ago what he wanted for his birthday and he said Star Wars. Yup, that would fall into the husband department of this team. Tom did good. Logan’s face lit up when he unwrapped the Star Wars Transformer something or others. Logan is a very funny boy and it was a pleasure to see him and his friends enjoy the afternoon together.


It was a dragon theme.
