In Ireland we visited family. Bert’s brother Ed married an Irish lass Elaine and 9 years ago they moved there with their adorable kids Connor, Caitlyn and Ryan.
My adorable nephew Ryan was a trooper as we explored castles and dramatic coastlines.
Castle stop number one. I played many games of “knights” with Ryan at each castle stop. Knights includes shooting faux arrows and much falling down dead. It’s great fun.
Dramatic coastline stop number 1,700. Here’s Ryan with his dad Ed (Bert’s brother) at the Cliffs of Moher. A must see sight that photos can’t do justice.
Dramatic landscape number (oh I’ve lost count). Ryan on the The Burren. Kids, such great energy! I was a little worried that he would fall through one of the giant cracks. Luckily, he did not.
Ryan braved a shopping day in Galway. Looking dapper with dad!
Ryan was a trooper at the museum too. As you can see we were all getting a wee bit tired by this time. Hi Elaine!
In his element at dad’s desk at home.
And the lovely Caitlyn. As you can see, a typically high tech family.
