Sunday was a pretty relaxed day. The O’Donnell sons and one daughter in law went with their mom to a fancy restaurant in Wicklow. Julie and I brought the girls and their cousins Aidan and Rochelle to Blackrock and Dun Laoghaire.

We walked from our place to Blackrock Market. Blackrock is a fun market with lots of toys, clothes, art and other. I got a dress and boot for 11 euros. OK I probably wouldn’t have bought the boots for more than 5 euros, but I know I’ll wear them.

After Blackrock we took the train to Dun Laoghaire. The regatta was still going on so it was hopping and we saw tons of sailboats, which is fun. We went to Café Mao, our favorite Chinese restaurant in Dublin. It’s very kid-friendly so I think it was a nice change for everyone. Then we walked down to the People’s Park.

The weather was very much what we’ve learned to expect here. Sunny one minute pouring rain the next. The kids were troopers with all of the walking but it’s a pretty part of Dublin.
