Beware all ye who enter here! (A St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun tale)

This morning we were called upon to babysit our youngest granddaughter while her parents went for a morning workout. Her older sister was out-of-town but her best friend was there for a sleepover. It’s a good thing I’m not a leprechaun (at 6′ 4″, I’ve never been mistaken for one). There to greet us was a leprechaun trap! I’ll let the pictures do the talking:

A very friendly welcome sign....

What leprechaun could resist?

An inviting trail.....

The suspense builds...

Just a lit bit farther......

Nearing the end of the rainbow....

Finally, the pot of gold!

And jewelry!.

The intrepid leprechaun trappers and their own pot of gold.

DISCLAIMER:

No actual leprechaun was harmed in the writing of this blog.

    Don’t you just love being grandparents? Loved the pictures.

      Like the man said, “if I had known how much fun it was, I would have skipped parenting and gone straight to grand-parenting!”

      P.S. I sent you an email a few days ago at your verizon address but I think it may have gone to your spam folder. Check it out and let me know and I can resend it.

  3. Adorable! You lucky Grandpa, you! 🙂

    Don’t keep us in suspense, Al…did they catch any? One of my employee’s 6-year-old son laid a similar elaborate trap – how fun!

    • Al says:

      No leprechauns caught but there were some goodies left in the pot of gold. They looked strangely like some things my wife had bought at the store. Hmmmm…..

  7. OMG they are adorable. Surely not related?? They look like my granddaughters when they were younger. Dianne
