Warning: picture heavy post.
The kids don't get to see their cousins (on either side) very often, so I was really excited that this trip to Ireland turned out to be mostly about them.
We arrived just in time to celebrate Laura and Rian's 17th.

Aoife thought she was in heaven. Not only did her holidays in Ireland start off with chocolate cake and ice cream, both sets of cousins had trampolines...
And they live just across the field from each other (and grandad), so they see each other pretty much every day.
For a social animal like Aoife, that was just the best. She had play mates pretty much on demand- how fun! And cousins Emma and Meg doted on Kirby- so, so sweet!
I have to admit, what I loved seeing the most though was how well Aoife got on with her cousin Charlie. The two were pretty much inseparable the whole time we were there, and Aoife hasn't stopped talking about him since we got home.
Thank you cousins for making our trip so memorable. Hope to see you again soon.
