Last weekend was Dublin Puppet Weekend. We kind of thought that the kids might be too young for it – but we sort of ran into some of the activities. Aine is the only one who enjoys Punch and Judy type shows. Maybe you have to grow up with Bosco (one of the characters) to like that sort of thing. But we did see a guy who did a very small puppet show. He started with a mermaid. I think I got a video, which I’ll try to add later. His work was really exquisite – almost like a dance. I’ve added a picture of Wanderly’s Wagon for my friend Sheila. It meant nothing to us – but I thought you might like it.

Then we lined up to see the mechanical puppet show. But they only choose 10 people from the crowd to actually go into the show. Lily was the first person selected. She said it was cool. It better have been since we had to wait 20 minutes for her. (Not that we were jealous or anything!)

On Sunday we went to the Dublin Flea Market kind of near St Patrick’s. It’s an area that we don’t’ know well at all. It can be a slightly rougher area – but the market was very cool and we met up with our friend John. So that was fun.
