My First Ride on the Light Rail!

(and other St. Patrick's Day adventures...)

Yes, I have never ridden on the light rail. 


Welllll...when you live uptown, like I used to, you don't need to arrange for transportation, you just walk! Unfortunately, we now live in the suburbs. Luckily, the light rail is 1.5 miles from our new house! Travis has been taking it to work everyday, and loves it. 

So this year, for St. Patrick's Day, we decided to make it our main source of transportation!

We went on the largest bar crawl in the world!! This was my 4th time participating, but my first not living in/around the uptown area! 

We walked the 1.5 miles to the light rail...and whyyyyy did I wear jeans?!?! It was SOOO hot!!
{I guess I should be has been super rainy in past years, to the point of us leaving because we were soaking wet and freezing!}

Here I am on my first light rail ride ever! It was soo crowded!!! We got on on the 2nd stop, so as the train kept stopping, it got more and more crowded...I am claustrophobic, so by the end, I wanted to throw up! And yes, I realize Travis is making the worst face ever in this picture. UGH.

Apparently, no one else was as excited as I was about being on the light rail! HA!

And here we are...we made it!!! I tried to find my friends....but unfortunately, it's harder than it looks when there's 10,000 people and everyone is wearing the same freaking t-shirt!

{The lovely boys I had the pleasure of spending my day with}

{family photo...we joke that TJ is our adopted son because we always take care of him!}

TJ wanted to try on my sunglasses...

Ryan was CONVINCED he was going to win us an iPad playing this game! Hahha...also notice how his back is wet. I did that...I knocked the drink out of his pocket when he was giving me a piggy-back ride. Yes, we are 5.

With March Madness going on, there was a lot (maybe even too much) of this "staring at the game" business going on....

Ohhh speaking of March Madness, did you all catch that LEHIGH game?!?! CRAY CRAY.

Needless to say, my brackets are terrible. Even the kindergarteners' one:

That's a lot of red!!! 
Kindergarten bracket is in 2nd to last place among our group of friends...awesome.
And I'm not even going to show you my own actual is currently sitting in DEAD last place.
This is legit my worst year EVER of making a bracket! I usually win this stuff! What's going on?!?!
Although, Trav showed me how to do the "scenario generator," and it said if I get the rest of my picks right, I could still win! 
Too bad Kendall Marshall just fractured his wrist....UGH. Come on Heels!!!

Here's to hoping my luck improves...!!! Have a great week everyone! :)
