Shamrock Shakes

I love the annual McDonald's tradition of Shamrock Shakes. There is nothing better to celebrate St. Patrick's Day than a cup of cold and green minty goodness. After the kids' GT program, which happened to be on St. Patrick's Day and Mattie had done a special project on Ireland, I had hoped to take the family to Micky D's and introduce the kids to Shamrock Shakes.

Only ... they must be a northern thing. I told some people at work about my plan, and they had never heard of Shamrock Shakes. I called 5 McDonald's in Northwest Arkansas (I didn't yet know about this site). No one had them. I was sure I had seen them this year ... but as it turns out, that must have been when I was in PA early in the month.

What a shame. I was so disappointed. We ended up going to Sonic instead and eating normal ice cream. It wasn't nearly as fun as it could have been.
