After that, we were able to walk around Cork City Centre and see all the festivities. It gave us a good idea what to expect for Monday's celebrations! There were a million things to do and eat, and I especially loved the live traditional Irish music.
We did a good job Saturday keeping our boys busy having fun outdoors. After the missionaries left that night from dinner, all three boys fell asleep without even being asked. They curled up and went fast asleep. I looked over at Stan and said something like, well that was easy! We tucked them into bed and we were able to have a nice quiet evening. I needed to finish preparing my talk for sacrament meeting anyway, so it was perfect.
Many of these photos are from our drive out to the beach in Garrettstown which is located past Kinsale. It was a lovely sunny drive. It was fun to take a lot of photos to document it. I think Kinsale is one of the most picturesque villages that I've seen so far in Ireland.
We found a lizard and both the Gregory and George were able to touch and even hold it. Stan caught the lizard at first, and made sure the two oldest boys had a chance to hold the little lizard. The boys loved it. They honestly thought it was so amazing!
