Visitors From Abroad December 12, 2007

img_0881.jpgThe past several weeks have been filled with visits from my family and friends.  My brother, Robert, his wife, Julia, and their boys (William, Grant, Jack and Alex)…yes, there really are 4 of them, ages 10, 8, 6 and 5, came over Thanksgiving week to tour Ireland.  I’m still waiting on their full set of pictures (hint, hint), but have a few of my own to show off here.  They managed to get around southern Ireland in a 9-passenger VW van, hitting several historic sites and castles.  I traveled north of the city with them on their last day and just missed the last touring of Newgrange.  I enjoyed having them in town immensely and am encouraged by their adventurous spirit to take their whole family to Ireland. img_0879.jpg  

My next family visitor was my aunt Marge.  Marge came in town last weekend and we filled our time catching up and visiting historic sites around the city.  We had an especially good time dining and drinking wine in addition to a trip to the Book of Kells and Dublin Castle. 

I was so grateful to have so many wonderful visitors in 2007 and hope 2008 brings more friends and family overseas!
