Our First Impression of Ireland


  • “I felt like we got on a plane and landed in Harry Potter world!” (I reminded Dallin that Harry Potter is probably more like England)
  • “I feel like I’m on the mission again.”
  • “I want to ride on the top floor of the double decker bus!”
  • “I want to go watch the Hobbit” (There are advertisements everywhere!)
  • “The sun sets at 3 pm everyday”
  • “I think we’re lost… again”
  • “I can’t sleep so I’m just going to snuggle May Bo and wake her up.”


  • “I got to play with a double decker bus in nursery at Church!”
  • “All the Irish people we meet wants to hold me, I don’t let them and I cry.”
  • “Strangers come up to me and starts playing with me.”
  • “I like being pushed around in my buggy all day long.”
  • “I am drenched. It rains all day long.”
  • “I’m glad Mommy and Daddy know where they’re going.”
  • “Why can’t I sleep at night?” (Micah woke up last night at 11 pm and struggled to go back to bed. He didn’t cry but he seemed a little confused.)

May Bo

  • “The yogurt here is much better in Ireland than in the US.”
  • “Irish people are very friendly, approachable, and generous.”
  • “Everything here is so eco friendly!”
  • “Wow… the shuttle driver didn’t take a tip.” (I guess you only tip at restaurants here… I’ll write another blog about this.)
  • “Thank goodness… they have Subway here.” (As in Subway Sandwiches… instead of $5 foot long they have 4 Euro foot long)
  • “Still haven’t figured out why there are two buttons on the toilet….”
  • “I’m tired… Dallin and Micah go to bed!”
