10 Questions About…

Snow & the W5 by Ann Treacy

Clearly we had to take a shot or two of the snow. It didn’t snow in Dublin so out timing, if we were missing snow, was perfect. This was the first snow in Belfast in 6 years, or so I heard. It snowed most of the night. I bet they had 3 inches of heavy snow by morning.

Unfortunately no one seems to have a shovel in Belfast. In fairness if I only needed one once every 6 years I wouldn’t have one either. So the walking was pretty treacherous – but we didn’t mind. It was a perfect morning to head into the W5 Children’s Museum.

The museum was great. The kids loved it. It was very reminiscent of the St Paul Children’s Museum – but there were a few new things. There was a science demonstration and Lily was picked as the helper – just as my sister Katie would have been chosen when we were kids.

I nearly forgot to mention the crabbiest lunch in history. We stayed too long at the W5 (forgot to mention that W5 stands for who, what, why, where, when). It was sleety and cold. We decided to eat at the historic Crown Bar. It is a nice bar – but it’s a bar. Patrick tried to order a beer, which he needed badly and they said no kids allowed. Quickly someone found us a nice little snug and in the end the food was good and it is very historic but it took a while for us to appreciate it. Sometimes we really just need a Champps, I guess.
