I'm back from my 3 week trip up north. I've actually been back for 2 weeks now, but the sun is so sunny and the water so blue, I've had a hard time staying inside to write about it. I headed back to Minneapolis (where it was 3. Three shouldn't even be a number when it comes to temperature.) to do wedding dress shopping with Hannah, who is getting married in August, and MOH dress shopping with Amanda, who is her MOH. It was a grand time, lots of family and laughter, some tears. My little girls are all grown up.
After Mpls I headed to Phoenix to thaw and see more family, and do a side trip to Mexico to stay in my sisters lovely condo on the Sea of  Cortez. I flew back to St Thomas and we immediately sailed south. We made it back to St Croix just in time for St Paddy's day. 
 
For some unknown reason, St Pat's day is a HUGE here.  Personally, I think it's because it falls right in the middle of Lent and it's a great opportunity to let loose for a day. Whatever the reasons, the partying starts early in the morning and goes late into the night, or in this case, until 4am.
 
We watched a 3 hour parade where the spectators were just as much fun to watch as the floats and bands. Everyone was in green. Green hair, green skin, green glasses, hats, shoes, socks. Water fights were had, drinks were lifted, we all had a wonderful time under the bright, hot sun.

 
 
 
Love his sideburns.




There were girls twirling flaming hula-hoops...





                                                          ...and leprechauns



                                            and a bartender on every float.




                                        Green was the color of the day. These guys had wet-paint hands
                        and were trying to put handprints on various parts of the women in the crowd.



                                               Love her smile, even her bike was green.


 
It was hot, but the bands played on

who would have thought St. Pat's would be so big there - it is the US though isn't it?? Hard to remember that sometimes with such sunshine and beautiful water! Glad you had a great trip home with family as well, but sure you are glad to be back to Celebration too!

Great pics, you guys. Who knew? That is amazing. What fun picking out dresses with Hannah and Amanda, Lynn. Your child's wedding is one of those peak parenting moments. Unforgettable. I've never had the experience of seeing a daughter in her wedding dress, tho, dammit. No wonder there were tears! She's going to be a beautiful bride!

Thanks for your comment, Angie. Have you ever tried joining a critique group? I'm not sure where you're writing from but there are lots of SCBWI critique groups all around the world, and there are lots of online ones, too. Sometimes you can just get too close to something and it's hard to see where to go with it whereas a fresh pair of eyes can come up with something really useful... Good luck, Clare.
Thanks for the post, Kyra, and best of luck with Strength Carrie -- I've been hearing great things about it.
