Of course we took tons of photos. And I plan on doing an album for the two of us. Plus one with just U2 concert photos.
But I am also in the process of making an 8 1/2 x 11 album of just my memories. My favorite sights, photos, and memories. Basically what Ireland and that trip means to me.
This is my title page...
"On Wednesday, July 22nd 2009, Mike and I boarded a plane at 7pm and headed to Chicago. From there we flew a direct 8 hour flight to Ireland, not arriving until 8 am the next morning their time.
Leading up to this trip, I was so excited. It was a dream trip I had been wanting to take for years. We were going to Ireland. To see U2!
I thought I would be anxious. Leaving the kids. Flying across the ocean! But it wasn't as bad as I feared. Yes, I really missed the kids. But I knew I might never have this chance again and felt so surprisingly calm. So happy!"
And it's only the beginning. Looking forward to reliving a lot of happy memories :)
For the Family:
This is a photo of Erin who came with my parents to pick us up from the airport after our trip. She was so little! Just getting ready to turn two. With her short curly hair. Makes my heart melt. She was so happy to see us! And I could not wait to scoop her up and hold her!
Evan on the other hand refused to come to the airport. He was a little mad at us for being gone so long, so he stayed back at the house with his Mimi. But let me tell you. It didn't last long when we arrived home. I think he was just as happy to see us as we were him!
