Pot O’ Gold Diggers

March 18, 2019

Prior to kids my St. Patricks Day looked a lot different. More of a pub, adult beverage, music and craic kind of celebration. With kids, we hunt for chocolate leprechaun gold and build magic rainbows with fruit loops. Honestly, my pre-kid self wouldn’t even recognize me now if she met me. But this St. Patricks Day the craic was all about the kids and their friends, who showed up bright and early to figure out if and where the leprechaun’s had buried their stash of gold. As it turns out, those cheeky little leprechaun’s did bury gold, leaving a bunch of clues and a fool proof trail to its whereabouts. It was chaos, but these little Pot O’ Gold diggers had the best time chasing down the trail to chocolate glory.

First clue found. As the oldest of the group, Keane elected himself leader and reader of the clues.

Ashton’s leprechaun hat only impaired his vision slightly.

The reading of the clue.

Thinking caps on as everyone trys to make sense of the clue.

The trail has been spotted.

And we are off and running! Our leader Keane.

Followed by our friend Henry

Followed by Cullen.

Followed by Ashton.

Luke and Keane ploughing ahead.

Logan feels like he might be on the right track.

The flags mark the spot.

This year the leprechaun’s buried 2 pots of gold.

Let the digging begin!

Brothers Luke and Logan team up to try and find the 2nd buried pot.

Working in shifts so they don’t get tired.

One of the Dad’s stepped in to get through a rough spot.

And one of the pots has been found.



Logan is so proud to show his momma what he found.

Team 1 have also found their pot.

Now its a free for all. Everyone trying to grab their share of the gold.

Yeah we’re pretty proud of our chocolate riches.

Comparing quantities.

Group shot! And the impossible task of getting everyone to look at the camera.

Mad rush to get back to the house and eat some leprechaun chocolate.

The dads are on post hunt clean up.

Back at the house and we’re getting creative with some fruit loop magic rainbows.
