Ireland trip (Day 4)

Well, this is our last day in Ireland. What a wonderful time we have had. 

Today we took the drive from Galway to Dublin, stopping at a town called Athlone along the way. The drive was Beautiful (as all the drives have been)! 

Before leaving Galway we took a short tour and had a stop at the Salthill beach



Athlone hosts a castle a beautiful river and the oldest pub in Ireland. 



So... It seems that is the end of our Ireland tour! What a treat it has been. Living away from my (Eieen) family I am fully aware and accepting of the fact that I miss out on important family events, this is not something I enjoy or find easy but a fact i have come to terms with. In saying that, being able to visit Ireland with my dad (a place he has always talked about going) and being able to do this over his birthday week has been such a blessing. Memories a will keep forever!

Friends 4 Dinner

During the Christmas season we had the privilege of hosting some Moroccan students for a Christmas meal.  It was a fun event for all of us.  We are already looking forward to the next time we can have them over!!

WOW! 50 years!!

June 24th 1967 - June 24th 2017
A few weeks ago we celebrated Randy & Margie's 50th wedding anniversary.

The pic above shows all six of their kids with all six of their spouses and their 24 grandchildren.  Margie's sister Dail is also in the picture, she was the 'surprise' for the event as she flew over for the week from Wisconsin.

The First Snow

The first snow came this weekend and the kids were pretty excited.  Waking up on a Sunday morning to a blanket of white is idealistic for your first winter.  
We will have a lot of snow this summer and the kids will enjoy it but we are sure as the winter goes on there will be more snow than even children can be excited for so today....  we are enjoying it!!
