The Irish...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This year our family looks upon St. Patrick's Day a little different.  There is still the fun of pinching each other before we remember to put our green on, but since we returned from a visit to Ireland a few months ago, we have a new special place in our hearts for the Irish!

We were in Ireland for a few weeks, and though it's not a huge island, it's so lovely with so many places to see. We didn't see half as much as we wanted!  We flew into Dublin, and drove to Limerick to stay. We took day trips from Limerick, and returned each night to our hotel during our stay. As each day ended, the we would say "THIS was my favorite day here" because all of Ireland is so amazingly beautiful.  The people were charming.  It was an amazing trip!

Because we have two boys who are insanely interested in castles, we went to more than 25 castles during our stay!  I've attached a few shots of the awesome history and views.

Have a great day, and don't forget to wear Green!

Until Next Time,

And We're Back....

I haven't blogged in a bit. Honestly, Blogger has me frustrated. My blog account got messed up a bit and I have put off straightening it out. I am back up and running. Another thing to check off my long to-do list! So, expect a post soon. After all, I have not posted recently and that means I have a lot to get off my mind! (Yep, look out!)
