What do I love more than scavenger hunts? Not much. So I was super thrilled to see the there was a scavenger hunt at the Kick Start festival in Dun Laoghaire today.

The Kick Start festival is supposed to celebrate the darkest Sunday of the year. There are bouncy castles, face painters and crafts along with the usual market – and a scavenger hunt.

The scavenger hunt involved a trek around the pier and half of Dun Laoghaire – but that was OK we had planned a hike anyways. So we answered all of the questions. We had a wonderful lunch at Olivetti’s. The pizza chef gave the kids some dough to play with and make their own mini pizzas. That was a good idea and kept everyone happy.

We got our scavenger results in just in time to be eligible for the prize drawing. We won free passes to the local gym. The best news is you have to be over 16 – so I won a bunch of free passes. The sad news is that it’s at least a 30 minute walk to the gym.

Speaking of which – Kate asked if we could just rent a car for her birthday but at least she’s moved off the idea of us flying her home for the weekend!
