In My Blogroll

View from the glen – such a picturesque place.

The weekend was one filled with travelling. Friday evening Eoin and I grabbed a late(ish) bus back to Letterkenny so that we’d make it back to Donegal at a reasonably sociable hour and still make it to our lectures that day.

Our reason for travelling up was because my wonderful little god-daughter Aoibhe was turning two and was having a little party to celebrate it. The sheer cuteness of it all was great 🙂 I was especially envious of the birthday cake she had – check out the photos.

Is this cake not amazing??

Meanwhile, though our primary reason for coming up was the birthday party, we also managed to squeeze in a bit of sightseeing out in the Poison Glen too. I was only sorry our trip had to be so short – there’s so much I would’ve loved to have gone to see had we a few days longer, but I’m sure we’ll get another chance at some stage over the summer 🙂

Aoibhe really liked they toys she got. I was delighted!

All we wanted was one decent photo. I spent the entire time trying to hold my hair down. You’ll soon see why.

Holding hair photo #4 <– It’s getting ridiculous now..

I didn’t realise how posed we are until I started captioning these photos. Claire, myself, Eoin and Mary (Aoibhe’s great granny)

Eoin had one job – get a photo of us with the baby. One job.

After two cupcakes, chocolate and some ice cream, Aoibhe was getting into the swing of things..

Final rock photo. Hair holding photo #5. It was SO windy. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

This. This is why I had to hold my hair down so much.
