Pumpkin Picking at Kennedys Pumpkin Patch

Today we headed off on another Adventure of Eire and took to Co. Meath to have a whirl around Kennedys Pumpkin Patch. I was flying solo with all four as Daddy had to work and in a panic, I rang nana to take the wobbler. In my defence, she has the snots and is feeling a bit under the weather so it was probably best anyway. I felt awful leaving her but I made it up to her when we got home with some quality one on one time. (more…)

Kia Ora Mini Farm Wexford

Summer is coming to an end and with one weekend left, I had to whizz up a quick review on the Kia Ora Mini Farm located on the outskirts of Courtown, Wexford. With a host of attractions, the two kids legged it once inside. I couldn’t tell you the number of trucks, tractors, go karts and trikes sitting around the grounds of the mini farm.

On a recent trip to Disneyland Paris I would have been lost without Mamma Mia, my little one loves musicals and it kept her entertained before, during and after our flight. Even though the portable dvd added some bulk and weight to my bag, it was invaluable whilst travelling. If you choose to bring a tablet download some favourites movies before you leave and don’t forget to pack some ear phones too.

Stradbally Woodland Railway

Stradbally Woodland railway express

Adventures of Eire continues this time with a stop off at Stradbally in Co Laois to visit the Woodland Railway Station. The boy is train and truck mad so this visit was mainly for him. I’ve avoided town and all the centenary celebrations due to the bump, I just couldn’t be dealing with the crowds but we did enjoy the parade on TV.  (more…)
