This week we’re on vacation in rural Ireland, which is just as green, lush, and wild as you might imagine.  We are staying close to a particular site where they film all those movies that require a backdrop of timeless hilly beauty, and spending our days hiking.

But even though we’re all on the same journey, we see things very differently, as evidenced by some photos taken by the grown-ups and parallel shots taken by the kids.

The adults saw this scene of majestic beauty across the Glendalough valley in County Wicklow:


The kids saw pink flowers, green leaves, and blue sky, at much closer range:

The grown-ups pondered history and mortality looking at gravestones from an ancient monastery developed by St. Kevin in the year 500:

While the kids saw AWESOME new socks, purchased just last week:

Adults saw this lovely portrait of clean, cheerful children ready for a long day’s hike:


What the kids saw this view of their parents, at the end of the day:
