And here we have the last installment of our trip to Ireland. We left ridiculously early on March 19th from BWI airport on a little JetBlue airplane.
When we arrived in New York City, the pilot let the kids check out the cockpit.
We had a 9 hour layover before our flight was to leave for Ireland. We ventured out to the subway and found a nice pizza place to have lunch. Then we headed to Central Park. I have always wanted to go to Central Park. I just imagined going there when it was a little warmer and no snow on the ground. We spent a few hours finding places where the Doctor Who episode Angels Take Manhattan was filmed.
We arrived in Ireland very, very early in the morning. I didn’t have the energy or brainpower to take pictures of the band and dancers who greeted us at Shannon Airport.
We spent the month (minus short trips to Dublin and Cork and a week in Clare) with Jamie’s mom. Jamie’s parents moved to Ireland when Cameron was a baby. This was the first time Fritz and Adrian ever saw their “Man” (Nan) outside of a computer screen (Jamie’s dad died while I was pregnant with Fritz).
On April 18th we headed back to the US. This time our layover in New York was a much more reasonable two hours.
