Run Fast Live Irish

That was the motto for this years Shamrock Shuffle.  It was a gorgeous morning in Chicago and we had a great run.

This guy ran the full 5 miles without a day of training....very impressive.

Congratulations Moyers!!!

What a gorgeous day and venue to the wedding of two fabulous people!
 I always love seeing the groom's first glimpse of his bride.
 And the bride's first glimpse of her groom.

 They wrote their own very touching vows.

 First kiss!
 We had a delicious brunch following the ceremony.

 First dance!

 Congratulations Lynne and Matt - love you both!

Country Wedding

Lynne and Matt's wedding weekend arrived and we all headed down to Tulsa, OK.

 The wedding and all the festivities were held at the rustic Post Oak Lodge - a great venue!

Who knew that they had great zip lining in Oklahoma...I thought this was a plain state.
 The afternoon was spent relaxing with the bride and groom.
 Then it was off to a rehearsal BBQ and bonfire!

 Nate, the best man, giving a wonderful speech.
 The Chicago crew!
 No country wedding is complete without a little...or a lot...of line dancing.

 Matt's nephew was hard to keep off the dance floor.
 ...taking after this aunt-to-be.
 Finishing off the night with a little Gangham style.
Now let's get hitched!!!

I had a "real" St. Patrick's Day this year....headed down to Chicago's South Side for the South Side Irish Parade.

 Sean's brother Ryan and his son Danny were marching with their parish.
 I tried to get green beer but was unsuccessful.

You don't get too much more Irish than the South Side parade!

 Then it was back to Sean's sister's house to relax and go to a neighborhood party.
That night I hosted some friends for a traditional St. Patrick's Day dinner...complete with corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, and Irish soda bread.

And no night is complete without Ticket to Ride!
