Today we went into town with the girls. We went to the National Museum to see the bog people. As the girls said, it was creepy and cool.

A bog is kind of like quicksand or swampland. According to Wikipedia, “A bog is a wetland type that accumulates acidic peat, a deposit of dead plant material.” The interesting thing about the bog is that it preserves anything that goes into. So sometimes when people are digging in the bog they run into super old thing – like people who have been dead for thousands of year.

It’s amazing how well they are preserved. You can’t take pictures in the museum, but it you’re interested, you can find pictures on Wikipedia. Again, it was creepy and cool. Now we just need to find a reason to visit a bog while we’re here as that would be cool too.

After the museum we went to the National Gallery. They were having a storytelling hour for kids, which Aine and Lily enjoyed.

After that we went to good old Eddy Rocket’s for dinner.
