Our long fun weekend

Last weekend the kids had an extra long weekend because of the Bank holiday and an extra school holiday.
We were also blessed with quite good weather, so we decided to do some fun things with them.

These are the activities that we chose.


I took the kids to the Square in Tallaght for cookie decorating, face painting, colouring/painting, and balloon modelling.

I was impressed by this event. All of my kids enjoyed it, even my two year old.
This is event was free but they were collecting money for the Children's Hospital .
The recommended age was three year old but all children were welcome.
And I can certainly say that it was suitable for two year olds as well.

Nevaeh is enjoying the painitng

The three girls are busy decorating cookies

There was also a play kitchen

And there were bubbles

And more bubbles..

Nevaeh decides to make more cookies.

Yovannah is getting a face painting

And the end result ....her favourite Hello Kitty

The Square in Tallaght often has similar events on the Saturday which normally go from 12 to 3 pm. So if you’re living close, it might be worth your while to go have a look.

On the way home, the girls enjoyed eating a popsicle.

The rest of the afternoon and evening they played in the front yard on the bouncy castle and with other toys with Ixora’s friend.


I took the kids to church as usual. They had fun, all in their own room. And played some in the play area of the church.


I felt tired so I had a nap and we stayed in for the rest of the day.


The kids played in the front yard all afternoon with Ixora’s friend.
At the end of the afternoon we went to the Corkagh park for a picknick and to fly kites. We ended up mainly flying kites and the kids had some snacks out of the bag from time to time.
I hadn't done kite flying in a long time.  I was at the carboot sale on Saturday and bought three kites there. Such a good choice. I love carboot sales!
It was amazing to fly the kites even though the wind wasn’t strong enough for two of the kites to really go high. We all had a lot of fun. Everyone got a turn.


We went to the library for a short time, where the kids coloured and played.

After the kids played in the front yard with friends we took them to another park close by, to feed ducks and play ball.

There weren’t a lot of ducks, swans etc to feed but they still liked it and they enjoyed being out and about . They ran around a little and played with the ball.

After getting back from the park we went to the MC Donalds drive inn and the girls enjoyed a happy meal in the back of the car.

I’m blessed that we could do some fun things for the kids that hardly cost anything.
Glory to God!

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Nevaehs Summer Bucket list

Unfortunately, it seems that this year the Autumn weather has started earlier than last year. And so I finally wanted to write a blog post to share Nevaehs Summer Bucket list with you.
This Summer, we mostly stayed in the Netherlands. We only went to Germany to visit Moviepark Germany for two days. At the beginning of the break, the girls entertained themselves by playing games and watching youtube video’s on their tablets and laptop. This bothered me a bit, so one evening I called them all together to sit down and told them to make a bucketlist for the Summer. The first one to finish was allowed to have the last bit of ice cream. Nevaeh can already write a little bit but I told her that she could draw instead. So she made a bucketlist with 10 items on it. The actual bucket list got lost somewhere but we memorized what was on it and I’m glad to say that she has been able to do all the items on it.
So here is Nevaehs Summer Bucket List.
