Some holiday

In an early celebration of St. Patrick's Day I treated the kids to Shamrock milkshakes from McDonald's.  I used to love getting these as a kid and still do.

Carson and Luke have never had a Shamrock shake before so they did not know what to expect and I wanted to keep it a surprise.  When they took a drink (after a long time of sucking through the straw before they successfully got any out) Luke announced in an excited voice, "It doesn't taste like grass!"  I guess that would be a good thing.

I went on to ask them about St. Patrick's Day and what they thought it was all about.  Luke gets all the holidays mixed up and said it was all about hugs and then continued to tell me Happy Valentines Day.  Carson said it was about leprechauns and four leaf clovers.  Then he went on to tell me that we celebrate Patrick.  So I asked who he was.  And you know what he said?  

Patrick from Spongebob.  

Happy Patrick Day.


  1. Very cute! There's nothing more entertaining than kids' perspectives on almost everything! Thanks for sharing.

  2. so cute!

    i'm taking the boys for shamrock shakes tomorrow. thanks for the reminder!

  3. Thank you, thank you, thank you for reminding me about McDonald's Shamrock shakes. We will be getting a couple tomorrow. And Patrick from Spongebob...hilarious. Yeah, we're not huge St. Patty's day celebraters, so I've been thinking how to explain this holiday to Alex.

  4. LOVE that he thought we were celebrating Patrick from Spongebob...priceless. Looking forward to some Shamrock Shakes after school today and a little corned beef tonight.

  5. Can you believe all of our area McDonald's are NOT selling Shamrock Shakes?? It's a travesty...and I'm not exaggerating. I was SO looking forward to one. Thankfully I had all of the ingredients on hand to make my own version (with FF vanilla ice cream, it was much healthier) and it satisfied my craving at least! But still not the same :-(
