March: Wow, can you believe it? I started to blog. William set me up and helped his dear old mom learn how to blog. Guess what one of my first blogs was? Ha ha. It was 40 days to Ireland.

April: I was so excited, yea it was finally here. We went on my 2013 Christmas present from William to Ireland. The flights were long, but so worth it. On our first full day in Ireland we were in a we fender bender. That made me a little more nervous for William driving in Ireland. They drive on the opposite side of the road than us. Some of the roads were like one lane, but are two way traffic, scary.

I loved the Blarney Castle best out of all the castles we saw.

I had a very good Mother’s Day. The boys sure do spoil me. William made a breakfast for me. The boys took me to Red Robin for lunch. I also got a special gift from William and Brian.

I really enjoyed the day we went to Bryce Canyon National Park. It started to snow. I thought we were going to to leave before we saw the park, but it let up enough for us to stay. It was so cold out. I loved seeing the snow covered canyons.

I wish everyone a Happy New Year.
