Friday Update

Well I am a little slow to the game.  I guess the Five on Friday linkup is on a Summer Break - which is cool because I am too but also kinda sad because I love the ease of these posts and checking in on other linker-uppers.

If you come around these here parts often you might have noticed I haven't been too good on the blogging front lately.  I have an excuse and I think its a pretty good one.  We are on Vacation!! I know weren't we just at Newman Lake not too long ago? Well this one is even better and I have many posts coming up in the near future about it.

We hopped on a plane (or three) to travel to the UK!  We are visiting Scotland and Ireland (the homelands) and we are having a total blast.  This trip has been a long time coming and we are so grateful for my Daddy to take us on this fabulous adventure.  Ellie is doing swimmingly well.  She was a total pro on the planes and has been the highlight of our trip so far.  We get stopped nearly every block and at each store/restaurant/venue we go to with people wanting to get her to smile at them, wave, blow kisses, and hold her hand.  The people of this part of the world are extremely friendly and just about everyone is interested in the baby.  We have had several offers to trade her for some teenagers and in our first night in Dublin we happened upon a Pub with live music, the musicians fell in love with Ellie and dedicated the whole show to her! They changed up several of the lyrics in songs to include her name and she got the fiddler's bow!!  But more on that to come in future posts!

The sights are just beautiful and I can't wait to share more!
