The big girls went to school today. So the rest of us went with the Australian cousins into town. Patrick and the Australians went to the Georgian House. It’s nice – but I have been there twice so Aine and I decided to hang out in the neighboring park, Merrion Square.

We found a playground, a statue for the Defense Forces that seemed to include an internal flame and of course the famous statue of Oscar Wilde. The park is very lush so Aine found it a little scary but we had fun. Then we trekked over to the National Gallery. They have a great kids pack that you can pick up and use anytime. It include a scavenger hunt type thing and some crayons and paper. We found exactly one painting on the list – the Little Green Fields by Gerard Dillon. Aine drew a picture of the Earth as her scavenger task.

Eventually we met up with the others for a quick lunch.
