The Luck of the Irish

Logan was sure not to get pinched with this green face.

A family friend, BOB, invited us to a party held by the Irish Society of Charlotte. Ben loves him some BOB. I think they hugged for 10 minutes. Or maybe Ben wanted some beer. 

As usual, Ben became a celebrity at the party and got to choose the winning raffle ticket. A young girl won $106!

They taught us a jig - that's me with the jeans on. It was a fast paced dance, and it was fun. Ben was invited up with the band to help keep the beat. They under-estimated him and he almost took down the mics, speakers and music in one swift pull. Luckily I am fast on my feet while doing the jig.

We visited the US National Whitewater Center to see if the water really did turn green on St. Patty's Day.

 We saw a giant Leprechaun and I swear I saw a tiny one riding a moped...but no photo to prove it.


At the Irish party, two different sets of parents introduced themselves to me. They have adult children with special needs and wanted to meet Ben. Always great to talk with parents who have been up, down, over and through the woods. Their perspective is like looking through a viewfinder with a completely different lens.

While at the USNWC, Ben wanted to walk around. There were probably over 10,000 people at this event and who did we see as Ben made his way over to the hill...his physical therapist from school. Nice way to show off his stuff!

Sean's final words of the day, "I love St. Patty's Day. And I did not get pinched once!"
