Day 10 - Wet Sheep

We woke up to a very cloudy and rainy day. Later we found out that the beautiful sunshine we arrived in is a nice tease in these parts. I walked in the kitchen to put some dishes away and start making breakfast and say hello to our wet sheep :)

While I made breakfast the rest of the family played hide-and-go-seek.

We were all still a bit tired from traveling a lot the previous day and so decided to take it easy and spend time at home and around the farm. Hannah wanted to play outside on the rocks and Kian wanted to visit the pet lambs.

The wind was too strong to stay outside so the kids came back in and started playing a game of tic-tac-toe together.

But of course in every game there is a winner and a loser and the loser was not particularly happy about the outcome of the game.

 Losing is no fun especially for a 2.5 year old :(

After this we decided to head into Louisburgh to buy some meat for dinner from the butcher in town. This was my first time driving the stick car and much stalling was in order. It is also quite terrifying driving on the "wrong" side of the road. Asides from remembering that you have to drive on the left you are also very confused about keeping proper distance on the left side. I almost nicked the mirror on the passenger side!!  Oh and did I mention the roads are very very narrow and the locals drive pretty fast. At least it seems fast to a driver terrified of stalling and being on the wrong side of the road! 

We bought the meat and managed to make it home unscathed. Kian helped me make dinner, Beef Stroganoff with rice.

While I finished up a few final touches the kids played with daddy-o.

After dinner the clouds finally parted and we were able to enjoy some beautiful views over the ocean.

We wrapped up the night by watching The Little Mermaid for our family movie night which happened to be on Wednesday this week.
