It all sounds so idyllic doesn't it? Well, keeping it real, there were mental days too of course, with the boys bickering and wrestling (I grew up with 2 sisters, boys are crazy!) and I must admit to enjoying a little bit of quiet in the house (even though I missed them) once they were settled back at school. It's amazing how quickly 8 weeks can pass when the days are full of the mischief and energy of 3 little boys.
I won't bore you with a million photos, I don't have the energy to go through them all even but here are a few little snaps from my phone...
S inspecting the displays at the Natural History Museum.
We love Malahide Castle, a great spot for a day out with kids, beautiful grounds, great playground and delicious food at the Avoca Café.
Buying ice-cream from the van at Bettystown Beach is one of my favourite childhood memories, now my boys do the same :-)
Making the most of the sunshine, the boys spent hours in the sea that day.
Really delicious seafood chowder at Nan's Café in Laytown.
Totally random photos, but then Summer holidays are totally random aren't they? That's what I love about them most :-)
