missing you all out there in the blogosphere! xox

european vacation...dumfries, scotland

at the end of our ireland trip, we are spending one night in dublin, then patty's mom flies home to los angeles. we catch a flight to scotland and will be staying two nights in dumfries. i'm really excited to see this part of scotland...we're stopping in dumfries to stay with my friend lesley, who i stayed with for a while when i lived in seattle. she's from scotland and now is married with a child...she and her family live in an old school house. how charming. i haven't seen her since 1999! i'm so excited...

next stop: london...

european vacation...first destination: clifden, ireland

today is seven days and counting until we leave for our european vacation. our first stop will be clifden, ireland. why clifden? well, patty's grandma oona is from this town and patty's mom has always wanted to visit. so, we're taking patty's mom! we'll be in clifden for a week and we don't have anything planned. since we are with her mom, i figured we'd stay in one place and take little day trips if we want to. or, just walk around the cute town.

we're staying in a really sweet bed and breakfast...can't wait!

tomorrow, destination number two: dumfries, scotland
