Beautiful Weather

The weather here is fantastic compared to what Vegas is going through. The high today was somewhere in the low 60's. When the sun was out it felt like a perfect spring day. As soon as the clouds covered the sun it felt like we were in winter. We went to this park called Stephens Green and it is huge. There are giant ponds filled with swans and ducks. Gavin and Tyrone had a great time chasing all the birds. There was a concert in the park with 3 musicians playing traditional irish ballads. It was fun to sit and listen to them. It started to get real cold so we left before the music was over. Ireland is a wonderful place. I wish I could bring all my family over to see and experience all of Ireland. Mandy's family are great and help make the experience great. We went into town today, Dublin, and I bought myself a cap like John Wayne in the 'Quiet Man.' Well not exactly the same but it is the same idea. I will sport it around while I am here, cause it will be way too hot to wear it in Vegas. At least until the winter time.
Gavin and Tyrone are hanging out with their Grandad. It is funny how they have only met him once, and they picked up right where they left off. Gavin keeps calling him a 'Pirate' cause of his long hair and beard. This is time we will not waste and are grateful to be here!

I would love to go to Ireland! Glad to hear the weather is so nice. We are having tornadoes. Yuck. Although, 60's as a high is still a little cool...70's are right about perfect!
Thanks for the updates! It is fun to 'explore' Ireland with you!
