… are probably spent outside to be honest. Maybe by a swimming pool if at all possible.
And would definitely involve the necessity for sunhats, ice cream and Prosecco anytime after eleven. 🙂
But February in Northern Ireland isn’t really conducive to that kind of caper (sigh), so we are spending our weekends finding fun things to do inside instead.
A couple of Saturdays ago it was that great mix of weather where the sky can’t decide quite what it wants to do. One of those days where I ALWAYS regret not wearing a coat with a hood – you know the ones.
So we took a trip to lunch, followed by The Ulster Museum for a wander. Because eating and artefacts pass a rainy Saturday pretty perfectly I reckon.
Some pictures of our day below, if you’d like to see…
I’d thoroughly recommend Cafe Conor on Stranmillis for brunch. We are mostly addicted to their Lasagne with Rosemary and Sea Salt Fries, but the breakfast menu is amazing and is served all day too. Totally going back on a weekly basis for pancakes! 😉
These boys! Love those handsome faces so.
She really needs to stop growing up! I adore the beautiful person she is becoming though, and she is my best friend and biggest ally. I’m so, so thankful for her.
And also for the quirky, charismatic spirit of this one. Annie Isabella you are a little joy!
Makin’ our flutterbys…
… And a bit of dressing up too, just for inspiration you know! (Not sure how the red tutu/tartan mini fitted into the theme but hey, seriously well dressed butterflies in Belfast! 😉 )
I really wanted this mug from the gift shop (I might just go back for it!) We speak our own language over here! 🙂 Loosely translated – ‘how are you today?’
All in all, it was a day very well spent indeed.
It occurs to me more and more these days how our children are becoming such good company, such fun to be around. They always were of course, but the very little years were at times a test of endurance, and day trips would be all about managing tempers and tiredness and jollying along. There’s still a bit of that (Lord help us when the Hanger sets in!) but for the most part we chat and laugh and enjoy the company of them very much indeed.
And that. Those.
They are my favourite days of all.
