After lots of packing, preparation, and getting the house in Ireland ready for a series of guests while we’re away, we left for America last Wednesday. When we got to Dublin, Rebekah asked “Are we in AMERICA?!” But even though she threw up in the airport, the trip actually went very smoothly. Travelling without a baby is something we haven’t done in a long time, but travelling with a little girl is definitely new: Seth had certainly never watched back to back versions of Cinderella before. We’re thankful for the smooth journey, and are slowly getting adjusted to American time and temperature (it was in the 60’s f when we left Youghal, and it’s in the 90’s here). Sweet tea and bacon definitely help!
