A wee bit Irish

So....I'm pretty much Irish. My parents came over from N.Ireland on their honeymoon, and ended up staying in Vancouver. I was so lucky to go back to Ireland every year when I was younger, and we took Toby for his first visit in the summer of 2008. So..I figured since it's St. Paddy's day today...I'll give you a little peek at the "Ol' Sod" :)

We are very lucky to be able to stay at my parents' house (they live there in the summer)'s very beautiful and has room for everyone :) It was built in the early 1800's and has lots of great character and space for boys to run around! Look how little my Toby is in these pictures! goes so fast, doesn't it? *sniff*

So many beautiful, majestic views..

Just *slightly* windblown!

A walk through the "bog"

We had a cozy evening with cousins in their little backyard thatch cottage

A peacock on the roof! :)

A day at the beach....beautiful white sand beaches, but that North Sea is COld!

Happy St. Paddy's day!
