Pocket Edward back on US Soil

In the past 24 hours, Pocket Edward had been in 5 different countries. He was in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Wales, England and now the USA. It has been an exhausting day for the humans in his life, but Edward is none the worse for wear. He did help us bags around. It is nothing for him to lift a few suitcases!

Pocket Edward Visits a Pub

May 14, 2010

It is legal to go to a pub in this country, even if you are under 21. Since Pocket Edward is only 17...we let him come with us. We enjoyed the food here, Edward just waited for us, of course. But we did get him to pose by one of the country's most beloved exports!

Edward is Still in Italy

May 5, 2010

Here is a famous pose for you. It should be easy to identify what Pocket Edward was up to!


Tuesday, May 4, 2010

Since the innkeepers are mere mortals working for the Cullen family, the Volturi, wanted to meet us. This was a scary experience, but we survived. Edward was also not excited to be here!
