St. David's Day
Today is St. David's Day. It's a huge deal here apparently. We went to the St. David's Day parade in Wales. Now, having attended some large parades in my time (San Diego's Pride Parade comes to mind), I expected this one to be huge. It wasn't. No floats, but lots of excitement and pride all the same. (To be honest, the little spring blossom parade in Nashville, Indiana was bigger.) After everyone who was a part of the parade marched by, the crowd sort of followed them from the city center down to Cardiff Bay. It was a looong walk, even though just a mile. I was wearing the baby the whole time and she gets heavier every day! But, once in Cardiff Bay, we found an ice cream shop with gluten free cones! Since we as a family gave up gluten for lent, we were excited (although I opted for a fat free sugar free Starbucks Latte.) We took the bus back to our car.
