Kite Fest

Last Sunday we decided to do something a little different. Apparently the Kite Fest has been taking place for the last few years not far from home so this year we decided to go. Nounou is a little obsessed with flying objects; planes, birds etc. so we figured he would enjoy kites.  It was a little cold and windy on the beach and honestly, we’re not sure if he even noticed the kites he was so enthralled with all the people and surrounding noise!

We were expecting more professional kites / kite fliers but the vast majority of them were held by children and their parents. There were stalls playing music, serving food, face painting and kite making. It was filled with families pretending it felt like summer -it was actually pretty cold, but there was a lovely atmosphere.

I’m always thinking now of different things to explore through the eyes of a little boy… I find myself constantly thinking what he might learn from, or what he might really enjoy… this was something different, full of colour, music and people in a new place. It was the perfect time spent on a Sunday morning.

    Hi Joanne, Allan, and Noah Baby, Loved your latest photo’s on the beach in Ireland. Where was this? Those kites were beautiful! Because of the overcast day, their colors really showed up! I love Noah’s sweater, so Irish! Love all your photo’s with especially Ireland in the background. You all look healthy and happy and that is a good thing, as Martha Stewart used to say! LOL Take Care, Suzan

      Thanks so much Suzan! :-) This was on a beach called Bull Island, in Clontarf. It’s not too far from where we live. Noah’s sweater was knit by his Gran (Alan’s mom!) We have a lot of them!!! Will you be returning to Ireland this year?
      I hope you are doing great!
