The Ulster Museum takes you through the history of Ireland and you go all the way to "America" on a ship and come out visiting American history that the Irish people experienced. It was very well done!
Charisma and I had the privilege of visiting the Darraghs in Northern Ireland for 12 days the end of September. It was so great to be with them all. It was also fun to overlap my parents' stay for a couple days. Here we are at the Ulster American Folk Museum near Strabane.
Dad is the best! He knows all the tricks to lure in the fish! He also knows how to keep a pontoon full of kids happy. Notice the bananas, cashews, and the old standby.....beef jerky! It always works to have snacks and water along!

Then we finished the night off with Poppyseed Torte! (Great Grandma Berge's recipe) What could be better?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BECCA!
To celebrate, we took the 2 yr. old out to eat and shopping for a birthday balloon! He was thrilled to be KING for the day!
Sporting his new haircut, he decided it was time to grow up and learn big boy things like how to work a fishing pole!
Brutus, our little rat terrier, had the unfortunate experience of being run over by a hay wagon! He chewed the first cast, so the vet put this cute little collar on him. He looked like a circus dog! Becca and Ginger are pictured here with our little wounded soldier.
Following violin lessons, our kids dressed up with the Demmers and Hicks and put on a back to school skit. Notice Jakob in the purple wig and hot pink formal! I couldn't believe he let me take a picture! We will have to show it at his wedding someday!
