After Eric got back from his deployment, we gave him a couple days to rest and then went off on a road trip. We went to Dover to see the White Cliffs and also to see Dover Castle. It took us about 2.5 hours, so not too bad. Overall, Dover was very disappointing. The castle was really neat and the white cliff were beautiful, but the town itself was very run down and...trashy. The girls had a fun time running around the castle grounds, and Leah relished the thought of a "real" princess walking through the halls and sleeping in the beds. :)
The first (and thankfully only) night in the hotel. They did NOT want to go to sleep at all. In fact, we had to split them up to finally get them to go to sleep.
Aine in St Mary's Church on the castle grounds. She climbed on to a pew and just laid still for a while with a very serious expression on her face.
