Karen's Visit!

In November, my cousin Karen came all the way to Ireland to visit us! I was so happy that she could come! It was a true blessing to have her here for two whole weeks. She is the kind of person that anyone would just love to have around because she is full of so much joy of the Lord and has a contagious excitement for life. I love you Karen!

We took some time and visited Dublin!
My favorite part of Dublin is St. Stephens Park, right in the middle of the city. There are fountains, ponds, wee bridges, and quiet benches to sit in and contemplate life or, as in our case, to rest our pooped out legs!

Karen also graced us with her cooking skills on several occasions and boy, did we reaped the benefits! It was oh-so-yummy! She is amazing.

Thanks for the wonderful time Karen! We miss you!

You are so sweet Melanie! I really enjoyed my time there too! Fun pictures...I may have to steal the Ratatouille one to put on "Karen Crocker"! ;)
