An Irish Meal

The Irishman and I ate at Raglan Road on our last trip to Disney. Before our trip this time we asked about celebrations for St. Patrick's Day, but all they could tell us was about the happenings at Raglan Road.

(Side note...NOTHING in the parks for St. Patrick's Day? That is seriously disappointing. It would be my biggest complaint about Disney this trip!)

Knowing anyplace with a $10 cover charge on St. Patrick's Day was likely not the best for a toddler, we made reservations for March 16th and decided to get our green on a little early. We had a table right by the stage...Caitlin was most interested!

She watched with fascination as the dancers came on stage.

She was laughing and clapping and taking it all in. It was only a matter of time before she asked to get out of the chair and dance herself. Caitlin was starting to steal the show. A random grandmotherly-type woman came up to me to ask if she could take a picture of Caitlin to show her daughter.

One of the Irish dancers noticed our own little dancer and came over to say hi. She and Caitlin became fast friends.

Oh, and we did eat as well. The Irishman had the mixed grill (complete with black pudding...yuck!), I had bangers and mash, and the little one had an impressive Young Shepherd's Pie.

I forgot to take a photo of the protective shield I dressed her in so that she would not get Shepherd's pie on that dress! It was rather funny, and better yet it worked!

We were pushing our luck with bedtime so we had to leave before I had a chance to request a song for our little Irish girl.

I'm pretty sure she had fun anyway!

Love the last picture! She is absolutely precious!!! Rob & I also live Reglan Road and Ava also loves to dance. Wish we lived closer!
