This last week I was blessed to have one of my closest and longest lifetime friend come visit me all the way from home. She left her family of four kiddos with her husband and mother and crossed the seas to spend time with our family. Now, I call that brave. We had a great time and we were thrilled to show Heather around Belfast and the North Coast. She easily fit into our daily routines and the kids wanted her to do everything with them. I would say she was the resident "star" in our household especially when she brought us our most missed foods from home like fruit snacks, Goldfish crackers, tortilla chips, a Costco sized chocolate chip bag, and Fiber One bars.
Heather's timing was perfect for an authentic celebration of St. Patrick's Day. We went to the St. Pat's parade in downtown Belfast. We saw lots of dragons, dinosaurs, bikes, bagpipes, gymnastics, and much more.
Our new "gear" for celebrating the big day in.
