Back in . . . Green?

We are officially back from Ireland.

We spent about 22 hours either in an airport or an airplane on Saturday.

I didn't exagerrate. 22 long hours of me sitting in an airplane or aiport thinking about my furry guys back home.

But we made it safely so I can't really complain. We flew on September 11th too, which means I had to show my passport about 15 times before boarding the plane in Ireland.

Ok, I exaggerated. It was actually about 6 times and I can't say I minded the added security.

I'll be back with details of the trip. But before I can do that I have 1,548 photos to sort through.

I didn't exaggerate. I actually have 1,548 photos to pick through.

Here's one of the first pictures I took. I could have taken this same photo about 25 times over the vacation.

I'll let you guess whether I exaggerted that number or not.

I went to London in 2002 and as soon as we got to London, England went on high security alert as there were a bunch of threats. Congress was debating about going to war with Iraq, so Americans (or government wasn't too popular). And the night before we flew home, they found a guy with a live hand gernade in his luggage so they shut down the aiport for about 12 hours. Yeah....security was a bit tight that day. I think between leaving the hotel extra early, flights, delays, ride from Detroit Metro to Flint to get car and drive to GR was about 22 hours.

Looking forward to your pictures! Despite the long travel time and being away from Toby and Gordie, I imagine it was all worth it and Ireland was amazing, right?

I came here hoping for photos. And then I realized, think you may have posted them on FB. Worth the trip here to see the dogs sharing pillow duty. Adorable.
