Cleveland Zoo June 14, 2013 Rachel and I had a great time!

The beaver kept swimming by Rachel and coming right up to the glass as it did, lol so cute!!
 We visited the zoo to see the new Elephant habitat!

 Flamingos :)
 T-REX and RAchel!


 This Cheetah was aroused by a sound RAchel was making and got up from its shady spot to run over to the fence near her!!  It was trying to stalk her!!


Me with a painted dinosaur, so beautiful!




 Rachel with the view of the giraffes in the background.
 Cleveland zoo got these bears as orphaned cubs back in 2011, they seem to be thriving here.  They were chasing each other back and forth as fast as they could go!!  They had a big area to run around in.

Ireland Vacation

March 8-18, 2013  Me, Dan, Kathleen Mewhinney (his sister), Mike (bro in law), Sean (nephew) and Mikey Deighan (nephew) went to Ireland and it was fantastic!  Here are some photos:
When we got to Dublin Airport our luggage was frozen in the plane so it was a little delay before we left to go to Limerick and Adare Manor- Dan working its 5:30 a.m., Sean looking at camera, Mike Mewhinney (bro in law) and Mikey laying down.  The two youngsters fell asleep later in the afternoon and didn't wake up til the next day!  We stayed up and went to a pub in Adare, went to sleep around ten p.m.!  It was perfect because we had no jetlag!
 Milk Market in Limmerick (like our farmers market except they have meats, bakery and veg/fruits) Dan and Mike are pictured closest to the blue van-

 Kathleen, she was here for the bakery, so this pic makes her look good!

This pub bears my mother in laws name so I took this pic for her lol  she doesn't drink alcohol!
 Dan and Mike try out the Guiness at Nancy Blake's Pub in Limmerick!  Looks like it tastes good.  Notice the Jameson whiskey keg, we later tour the distillery in Dublin.

St. Johns Catholic church in Limerick- Beautiful



Blarney Castle - Dan, Kathleen and I visited and Kath kissed the Blarney Stone!






Dublin -Jameson Distillery Tour



Dublin we saw some rowers racing down the river!  the green bus across the river had a bunch of people riding along cheering at the top of their lungs!


 Dinner - Temple Bar area


Sunset in Dublin!!!

 Library in Dublin lit up for St. Patricks Day!!
 
 
My Birthday in Dun Lauhre at the sea wall, the light house was at the end, we walked to the end. (it was freezing but worth it)



 
 Dan and I at the Villa at Adare Manor -


 Dublin Airport Departure Day - St Patricks Day!!  We watched the parade on TV while having coffee and donuts!  It was snowing but the rest of our family went to the parade!!
