"One of the greatest things in human life is the ability to make plans. Even if they never come true - the joy of anticipation is irrevocably yours. That way one can live many more than just one life."

Maria Trapp-The Story of the Trapp Family Singers - Ch. 12 p. 4

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

  1. Oh man, I hope the neighbors aren't mad that you threw a ball into their yard. :)
    I also like how clearly you can hear Doug even though he is further away from the camera than your guide. :)

  2. Well, Doug did climb over the hedgerow to retrieve the ball. I'll have to get that video up. :) We Hayes are just a bit less soft spoken than the Irish. ;)

  3. I saw "hurling" and was concerned someone had eaten something that didn't agree with them ;) Doug has a new sport he can teach the grandkids now! Loving all the updates!!!!!!! I'm definitely soaking them all up and marveling at how fast the time is going. I can't wait to see more of your pictures!! Yay!
