Its been ages since I last blogged, but my excuse is I have been pretty busy, all indoors I might add.
I did think about snuggling up on the couch today, while the kids played repeatedly on their Wii/Ds games but mother nature called loudly to me to go out and enjoy some fresh air.
And even though the sky was grey (dont think it brightened up all day) and rain loomed on the horizon (wishful thinking on my part), I packed up 2 boys and a dog into the car.
Five mins later we were parking outside the nicest public park in the northeast (I will stand corrected if anyone knows of a better one). Sometimes I forget how lucky we are to live so close to Dun Na Ri forest park, Cavan, and most of the time I neglect to remember its even there for us to use.
The river was flowing fast and the trees glistened in green. The forest took on a life of its own with weird creatures being talked about and philosophical issues being discussed between the 9 year old and 11 year old (what if we were all in a dream and were to waken up in a white room). All the while our Jack Russell dragging me along to find the newest scent/smell.
I couldnt upload any more pics, the blog refuses to comply, so these 2 will have to make do....
