At the last minute we thought it would be fun and a much needed day away to spend with our family up at the Shannon Door… it’s a long ride especially when you know you have to drive it back the same day. Mike and I have done the round trip in one day, but never with the kids. It was OK… I wouldn’t love to do it…but it was well worth it…given the fantastic time that was had by all. I am not a really great keeper of the secret so Auntie Nora knew we were coming…last time we tried to surprise and told Auntie Kathleen she blew our cover too…. I guess us Irish ladies can’t keep a secret.
Katy & Patrick just adore their big cousins. It’s a really wonderful thing to see the big ones interact and take care of the littles…and lets me honest it’s a nice break for Mike and I to just have a break…and some adult talk.
Santa even sent a helper to drop by and say hello and he brought lots of Snoopy gifts with him.
It was worth the drive… to get to spend a few hours with some of our favorites. So very lucky to have them in our life.
