Will the leprechaun be caught in Joni's trap?

Joni set an elaborate ruse and trap to catch the leprechaun...
But the leprechaun alluded the trap and sent the girls on a scavenger hunt to find the pot of gold...
A little St. Patty's Day style... (aka Coco is an insanely good sport)

Happy Valentine's Day

Joni's poem to Dad: 
Your Smile
Fills my bucket
With happiness
Different feelings
Like a ferris wheel
When you're at the top
You make me
Explode with happiness
Because you are you
And my one and only father.
Love Joni
Will you be my valentine?

So happy to have the MacKenzie boys visit!
