We have not updated the blog in a while, not because there has been nothing to write about, but just because we have been pretty busy.

This is our second St. Patrick’s Day in Ecuador.  As a result of some very interesting e-mails, we were invited to a party to commerate the holiday in Quito with the Irish Embassador to Ecuador, she invited us to her home for a private party,  how cool is that??  

We decided that it would not be a smart thing for us to spend money on the airfare to Quito for a party,  however, we know we are missing a fun party.  We truly appreciated the invitation.

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day, which has always been a HUGE holiday for my family, our Irish Heritage has always been a great sense of pride for me and my family. 

My  blog today is pictures that were taken in Ireland during trips there.
