St. Patrick's Day with the O'Smarts!!!



O'Smarts done it again!! The weather wasn't as pristine as other years, but we O'Smarts march rain or shine! (*Let me apologize in advance for the ridiculous amount of pics. This is our biggest holiday of the year and didn't want you to miss out on ANYTHING! ha)

Despite our attempts to stay dry under our festive umbrellas, we were all drenched 10 minutes into the parade. I've never had so much fun though! One way to tell if you really are Irish is if you show up for the St. Patty's Parade even if hail the size of leprecauns is falling.


O'Smarts....est. 1974

Like I said, rain or shine we were marchin!

Irish Beauties
We thought this was funny

The boys were LOVING all the dogs at the parade. This pic shows them meeting up with some Irish Wolf Hounds. They are really cool dogs, and HUGE to say the least.

I would be lying if I didn't admit to having a fetish for abnormally small horses. I got my picture taken with this little gus last year. I guess HE is my favorite horse of the parade. If anyone else likes them there is a small colony by the PG freeway...:)

These are some videos of us actually marching in the parade. 100% Lyrish...and proud of it.

Ricker said this was his best pic of the day...??
Mind tearin it up...ha ha (that was for you cher:)

Nick just couldn't catch a break! EVERY time he got CLOSE to the gloves someone else, unlucky for him, rolled doubles

G.Phyl Phyl getting down and dirtay in the dice game:)

Please bless we have at least ONE redheaded child to make our family seem more Irish.
Everyone brought a green gift for Green Elephant. Let's face it folks, St. Patty's is bigger than Christmas at the O'Smarts.
My sweet gift I came out with. Its a sin to not get a pic drinking my sweet looove.

Danny and I CLEANED UP in the green elephant! I got the lovely green shirt (DMD) and Danny scored the gator...Provo River, here we come

Ricker smelling his green backs
Snick:) Such a handsome couple
Bens asked me to take a pic of him as a Pirate. Shocked?...me neither.
No one dared steal this gift...Rox had Cher especially in mind.

The O'Smarts Casa was looking ultra cute

My favorite meal of the year, CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE!!! It was delicious:)

MMMMMMmmmmm.....
The Buffy has as much spirit as anyone
She has THEEE cutest gummy smile ever!

As always, we sang, "When Irish Eyes are Smiling" O'Smarts sing it like they've been sipping too much ale...:)
O'Smarts know how to party!

What the heck! Do the Rocky O'Smarts still live in Idaho? All of those pics and not a single one of anyone from our clan. I understand that I may not be the cutest Irish marcher, but Sarah and Elie? Ouch!

This is so fantastic. You guys always do the holidays bigger than anyone I know. To be honest, I don't really know anyone who celebrates St. Patrick's Day like the O'Smarts! Hahah I love you all. :)
