Cliff's of Moher

One of the most amazing places we will visit on our tour to Ireland in May is the Cliff's of Moher.  Considering we have quite a few photographers signed up to come along, I'm thinking I may have a hard time getting them back on the bus. 
Now, my first trip to the Cliff's looked a bit more like the photos below.
I was afraid to put up my umbrella for fear I'd become Mary Poppins.
Oh my it was rainy that day!  But it in no way took away from just how magical a place the cliffs are to visit.  Here's a few photos from our trip this past October when gorgeous sunshine was the weather of the day!


I'm so excited to take our tour group to the cliffs and share this amazing place with them!
 I'm also hoping for another meal at McGann's Pub...omg...the food there was out of this world good!

Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!  I had the vegetarian option which was this mushroom dish in a pastry shell.  So good!  Although the fish & chips was amazing as well!
We've got a few spots left if you'd like to join us.....

A little follow up on the precious post about my quilt project with the second graders.  Our quilt arrived to our deployed soldier, Mike.  He sent us this great photo so of course, I just had to share with all of you!

Here's what Mike had to say about his quilt.
"I opened a package sent from you yesterday, literally the sweetest most thoughtful gift I have ever received. I cannot say thank you enough for this beautiful piece of art that I will no doubt keep for the rest of my life."
  Our story was shared in the District Newsletter as well as the local newspaper...and even though that was exciting for us....there's nothing better than knowing that our Soldier Mike loves his quilt and felt our love and thankfulness.
