Well the day is almost here! The last two days have been stressful; trying to fit ones life into two suitcases is harder than it sounds! But now that packing is over, I have time to actually get excited. I can't believe I'm leaving tomorrow!
I just wanted to post some pictures of what my family and I have been up to this past week. Just be warned, there are lot of them!! We wanted to spend as much time together as we possibly could, making memories!
This week was festival week in Tralee. The Rose of Tralee festival is an annual time of stalls, live music, screaming children, and lots of drunk people. Usually it's more popular with the visitors than with the locals, but since this is going to be my last Rose of Tralee for awhile, we decided to join in the festivities.
My sister being a diva! And look! The sun is out! I can't remember the last time that happened!
We wanted to take more photos of these peacock hairbands, but the lady who owned the stall demanded we stop taking pictures, so this is all we got. Funny thing was, we were close to buying a few, but we took our business elsewhere after that!
Laughably bad local metal band!
The best part of the festival...the over priced rides!
Dad and I did battle in the bumper cars...
...I totally won!
We decided to spend a day in Dingle which involves a terrifying drive up Connor Pass.
Some hardcore French bikers
Practicing our mad kung fu skills
My parents are so cute!
We had fun pretending to be happy tourists.
Don't be alarmed! Craic is the Irish word for fun!
Happy tourists! Don't they look happy?!
The "prehistoric museum" literally consists of the contents of this cabinet!! Only Dingle!!
Mango sorbet at Murphy's. Sooo yummy!
On Wensday my sister Abby and I went out for lunch and a movie.
We went to this restaurant called Mozart's (yes after the composer). I haven't been there in years, but I remember we used to go there all the time, back when the prices were reasonable. Abby thought it would be nice to go there one last time. The food is still great! We had pineapple, cheese, and ham sandwiches, with a very sweet malteaser milkshake, that neither of us could finish.
We went to see Super 8 after lunch. It was my second time seeing it. If you haven't seen it yet, please, you have to watch it!!! I can't stress this enough!!
We spent Wensday night dinner at Nancy Murphy's house. This woman and her husband have been so influential in my walk with the Lord. I have been so encouraged watching Nancy deal with everything that's happened over this past year. She has been my grandmother when I had none growing up. I will miss seeing her every Sunday.
After dinner, Sean and I went back down to the rides for a brother-sister date. I'm so proud of the young man he is becoming.
Phew!! Well thats it! I told you there were a lot of pictures! I hope you had just as much fun looking at them as I did taking them! Have a great weekend!
