As per our tradition, we had the leprechauns visit the kids and leave them with a treasure hunt!
The kids woke up to find leprechaun footprints all over the kitchen!
Looks like the leprechaun started here…
He made his way across the floor…
On the counter was the prizes! Clue #1 and tickets to the magic show. Our green gel ant farm was a nice touch!
The Leprechauns left these tickets to the St. Patrick’s Day magic show as gifts!
A bit groggy, but ready for a leprechaun treasure hunt!
Footprints in the bathroom! I wonder where they go!
Uh-oh. This doesn’t look good.
The leprechauns peed! I guess they don’t flush in Ireland. Gross!
Cricket found Clue #2! This one was found behind the toilet. It led to the dryer.
Clue #3! Cricket found this in the dryer. It lead her to the TV…
(Clue #4 photo missing. The kids were running too fast!)
The pot of gold was in the shower all along! Under the rainbow!
Another gift from the leprechauns (Cut out from a box of Lucky Charms)
Sparkly hat – Cricket called it a “sprinkly hat”.
Enjoying the spoils of the treasure hunt!
Cricket washed it down with a glass of green milk.
Buster loved showing off his special St. Patrick’s Day outfit that mommy bought him.
Cricket looks really enthusiastic about those waffles.
Buster made the leprechaun in school yesterday. They were happier than they look here. Honest.
Then later that afternoon, we went down to the Huntington Beach Library to enjoy a special St. Patrick’s Day Magic Show!
Grandma, Buster, Finn and Cricket watching the show.

Patty O’Furniture – Yes, he was a leprechaun magician.

Thanks to Finn for embracing your Irish heritage and making St. Patrick’s day one of the funnest holidays of the whole year!
