Day 17 - Relaxing At Home

After our road trip to Leenane and Killary Fjord, we planned to take it easy and just play at home and around the farm. The decision was party impacted by the weather, as it was quite chilly and rainy. 

Nevertheless we put on our jackets, walked around the farm, visited the sheep and the chickens, and chatted with our host. They really are great and so very hospitable. He explained a few farm details about the sheep and then he gave us some of the brown Irish Soda Bread that he bakes along with a jar of homemade rhubarb and apple jam.

We also visited Mayflower, a Connemara pony horse, who is now about 7 years old. She is very beautiful. Mayflower and her mom, Jessie, live here on the farm.

Afterwards we came back inside for some playtime. We have brought enough of the kids' favorite toys and gadgets to keep them busy :)

Kian ran around and played with Sam, the sheep dog, in the afternoon and would get bummed out when he would go looking for him and could not find him.

After dinner we had our weekly family movie night and watched Sleeping Beauty.  Both kids enjoyed the movie and I was quite nostalgic. It was a great way to end a lazy day at home.
