The next stop on our little tour was the site of the first recorded battle in Irish history. There’s a really cool story that goes with it involving a Cyclops (sp?), but I’d have to hear or read it again to effectively pass it on to you.
But, the history didn’t really seem to matter to the girls. I think they were just glad to be out of the car, even though we didn’t really drive that far. :o) This was called a stone circle (which I somehow managed not to get an actual picture of). It’s sets of stones set up in a circle to line up with the directions and seasons. It is in the middle of this HUGE field, so we walked across the field and explored the site area for quite awhile.
Hannah immediately started marching around the outside of the circle making up songs and narrating to herself.
The girls climbing on a tree stump. They took turns jumping off to Daddy.
The girls kept coming back to these daffodils. It was just this one little patch. You see the shoots for them all over the place right now. The footpath (aka sidewalk) leading up to our front door is lined with the shoots, but these were some of the first that we’ve seen that have bloomed.
That smug little look says, “Ha, ha, I’m on top of the stump and you’re not…..now, can someone please help me down?”
What a beauty!
I absolutely LOVE this picture!
A quick little snuggle
Cailyn and her new best friend, Ms. D
The girls have both really taken to our friends, Mr. W and Ms. D
Anytime we got anywhere, it’s quite the discussion to decide who gets to sit by whom. We’re really grateful to have them here.
Be sure to check out the new posts below. We’ve got one more post from our outting yesterday. Not sure if I’ll get it up this morning or not, but it’ll be soon anyway.
