Gold Dig..St. Patrick's Day.

Saturday morning we went to our local recreation center for a St. Patrick's Day Gold Dig. 

The lifeguards threw floaty balls, real, and fake coins into the pool. Then each age group had a few minutes to jump in the pool and grab what they could. They would refresh the supplies in between each age group. It was a pretty cute idea and fun way to celebrate a pretty regular holiday.

I love me some great organizational skills.  This team had them!  Yay for organization! :)

There was quite the crowd.  See the two "leprachuns" at the front of the crowd?  They were warming us up by telling us different St. Patty's day jokes. 
Knock, Knock.
Who's there?
Irish, Who?
Irish you a happy St. Patrick's Day. hahahahahaha. :)
                                                                        Setting up...
                                            About to jump in.  The littlest ones got to go in first.
                                       They both got a couple of balls and several fake green coins.
Then they brought out balloons, chocolate coins, and treat baggies that had really cute St. Patty's day paraphanalia in it.  They even got two free admission tickets to come back again.  All for just $3.00/child.  What a deal!

After the dig was over there was a family swim until the alloted "dig" time was up.  We spent a little while in the "warm place" (sauna) before heading home.  Fun morning!!  Happy St. Patty's day!
Pardon the non focused video.  With all the waves, my camera wouldn't focus well.  The first group is Ellyse's and the second is Allie's.  You'll have to look pretty hard to recognize which kids are ours. :)
