Weekend Report....

Comhaltas (pronounced more like "colt-us"...yeah, it's Gaelic) is a group that promotes traditional Irish music and culture. There are branches all over the World. The All Ireland competition is run by Comhaltas.

We belong to the Delaware Valley Branch and many of the members have become like family to us. They provided help with our trip to Ireland this year (as they have every year) and as a "thank you," Haley and Dylan performed for their annual meeting.

After their performance, Haley got to do her other favorite Irish activity... dancing! Haley loves to do set and ceili dances. She usually has a full dance card and doesn't even mind that her dance partners are often more than six times her age and they don't seem to mind having to bend themselves in half the whole time they dance with her. No, really, it is fun for everyone! Dylan and I even join in on some of the easier dances.

Dylan helping with the 50/50 drawing.

Haley enjoying some cool refreshment.
This weekend, Haley and Dylan had their first wedding gig. It was a very small wedding at a little local bistro. The kids played while the guests arrived. It was lovely.
