BSM - Just Having Fun

We went over to the local Purim Carnival today. Purim is the Jewish holiday that celebrates Esther saving the Jewish people from annihilation. I admit this is a great holiday; the Rabbi that taught a class I took about Judaism told us that one of the traditions is to drink until you don't know the difference between Haman (the bad guy) and Mordecai (the good guy). I know, I am summing up big time!! So you can learn more about Purim here.

How fun is that!? You actually get to drink [if you like drinking] I don't recall a Christian holiday where we are encouraged to drink like that! Of course, if you're Irish, today is a good day to have a green beer, eh? Or two, or three... heck, go for the 6-pack! It's St. Patty's Day!!!

[I digress.]

So we went to the Purim Carnival mainly for Harrison to play on the bouncer and get some lunch before his nap. Bouncer-Smouncer. He found this slide and a fun worm-like thing that he could run through, again and again and again.

Here is my best shot(s) for today.



Head over to Mother May I to see more best shots!

Blessed Nest - On St. Patrick's day everything counts! Although Irish, I probably won't have any type of drink today! lol.

Kim - it's actually a 3 photos layered together. At one point the layers were all solid and it looked like I had identical triplets! Eek!

Harrison is looking like he had a wonderful time! Fun shots! I think we need a Christian holiday like that, but I think St. Patty's day may be an offhand one. ;) I had to have at least one beer to celebrate my Irish-ness. :)
