While scrolling through our Facebook feeds recently, an alarming headline from The Guardian caught our eye:

“Huh? No!”

“What have we done to our precious children?!”

Beers!

It also reminded us of the time we went to Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day for our big “babymoon” vacation right before we started having kids. Here are some of the shenanigans we got ourselves into back then:
