Just wanted to make a quick post and say we're back from our vacation, and it was fantastic! I'm SO glad we chose Ireland for our getaway. Perfect.

Everything's all a jumble in my head, so I don't want to try and type it out here. And the pictures aren't sorted yet, so I'm not posting any of those either yet. Just wanted to make a quick post and say we're home =) I've missed you girls! And I absolutely need to catch up on what's been happening the past couple weeks.

I was AMAZED at the weather. Everyone said to make sure to pack all kinds of gear for the cold and rain, and it was just beautiful! It only rained twice in the two weeks we were there. Course I hear that's not typical

You were so lucky it's been raining since you left. We did have a few hrs today that were nice. Hope you found the Irish helpful when trying to find your way around. I hope you'll be coming back some day.
