Family Fun - Week 9

Our New Year's resolution was to do at least one family activity or outing, just the five of us, every week this year. This is week 9 of family fun.

We scrambled a little this week, thinking of something to do. It's that odd time here, not quite winter enough for winter activities, not quite spring enough for spring activities, or should I say for mud-free spring activities. We thought about going bowling but the bowling lanes close to us were booked up. Then I remembered the art gallery. Once a month the art gallery hosts a Family Sunday, with at least 3 art activities for the kids to work on. The activities often tie in with the current exhibits. Perfect!

After the art gallery, we went to Balzac's for hot chocolate. It was so quiet when we walked in. There were at least 10 other people there but no-one was talking. Fiacra and Ailbhe were completely oblivious to the silence and chattered away at their usual too loud volume. Connell and I felt a bit awkward but no one seemed to mind the kids. In fact, when Fiacra asked, "Why does that sign say Red Demon Coffin?", many of them laughed. (It actually read Red Diamond Coffee).
