Our past weekend part 2: Family event : Flight fest

When I heard about the Flightfest, I thought: 'interesting but probably not something we’ll be able to go to.' But since Ixora really wanted to go, as she told me on Saturday and there was an Flightfest advertisement poster at a LUAS station that said : ‘take the LUAS’ , I decided to go on google to do some research to find out where it actually was and how you could get there. It appeared to be quite easy to get there so on Sunday morning when I found that out, I decided that we would go.
I made a few sandwiches and filled two bottles with juice but I didn’t count on the rainy weather. All we had was a broken umbrella and then the rain cover for the double buggy and at some stage Ixora and I were really totally soaked, so much that she wanted to go home before it actually had started.
I refused ofcourse and told her that we came for the airplanes and that I at least wanted to see a few fly over. And I also told her that she would get dry again. The weather really turned and we dried up completely . Praise God. We had a great time and Ixora was happy that we stayed.

I loved taking pictures of the airplanes, even though I first found it hard to see them through the lens so I asked Ixora to take some pictures. But I took over from her again and it later worked out alright.

They really flew quite low so you could see them very well and it was a great experience to watch them while they were flying over you.

After a while we got some ice cream.

We got a barbequed hot-dog as well which was really yummy.

The kids wanted to play a little in a tiny park nearby.

 And we saw some more airplanes flying over.

There were supposed to be some activities for kids but I forgot all about them. We were more focused on the airplanes, but on our way back we saw some kids with face paintings. This family event was also organised as part of The Gathering.

It turned out to be a really awesome day. It was such a great experience. We really had a wonderful time. And I was pleased that we were able to go. Glory to God !

How was your weekend ? Do you have any plans for the coming weekend ?
Have a great weekend whatever you do !

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.
