I've been to Ireland many times. My husband is from Cork, so I've made about eight trips over the last 10 years. This was my first summer trip and it was by far the most fun!
We spent two and a half weeks with my in-laws. The days were long, the weather was lovely. My kids spent time with cousins, aunts, uncles, Nana, and Grandad. We had a picnic at the beach and fed cows on a farm. From exploring the city to "Christmas in July" with the Irish family, it was the trip of a lifetime.
Now I have a million things to do. I have over a thousand pictures I'd love to edit/print. I have only finished 19 of 80 assignments for my online classes. I somehow managed to get myself locked out of my school e-mail tonight. I think I'm going to cave in to the jet lag and head to bed.
