Shamrock Shake

Dear Em,
Did you know that your very first milk shake was a minty green one at McDonalds? You were a little older than one & it was St. Patrick's Day. What do you do with a one year old on St. Patrick's Day?

It was a gorgeous & warm March day. We played at the park before stopping by Mickey D's for a treat. We bought one for the three of us to share, but you gulped that thing down like it was nobody's business. To say we were surprised was an understatement. Not only was it your very first milkshake, I think it was your first time drinking out of a straw. We thought there would be some kind of learning curve. Goodness, you had us laughing even back then.


Since then, it's become a tradition to have a Shamrock Shake to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. It's amazing how excited you get. During any other time of year, you refuse any color shake other than pink.

Since Daddy & I will be in Prague for St. Patrick's Day this year, we stopped to get your shake this weekend. By now, we know enough to get you your own shake. You still loved it just as much as the very first time.

There's just something about the small & simple traditions. 

I love you so,
