Tomorrow I head to Ireland for a family reunion with my Dad, Stepmom and Brother. I have never met any of these relatives in Ireland, but am looking forward to meeting new people and learning more about my heritage! I am also looking forward to a little change in scenery and a break from homeschooling, cooking, watering, and all that stuff :) I am also very thankful Dave is taking off work to watch the kids for a WEEK so I can go. Don't worry they will be fine, they are also getting some fun time with Dave's mom and Granny!
Here are a few pictures from a couple towns I will be visiting..

Killarney, Ireland
Adare Castle
Ring of Kerry
Tralee, Ireland...Where we are staying most of the time in this little B&B

I fly into Shannon, sleeping in Tralee and going off to Dublin, Killarney and many other places during my time there. See you all when I get back!

Making Pizza with friends!

We had a couple friends come over and we made PIZZA! The kids had to read the instructions and make it on their own (for the most part) it was fun and delicious!
Rolling out their dough!
Lauren playing with flour.
Jackson working hard!

Last step...EAT!!!!!

This tooth has been so wiggly and it's about to come out! this has been a long 2/3 month process! Here is the LAST picture I got with it in....when he still looked like my little boy.
