If we had a family bucket list for 2019, it would contain the words ‘fly a kite’ something which was yet to do as a family until this weekend. Me and the Man have been haunted by our last attempt to fly a kite with the kids a few years ago, we had a kite kit which was so complicated it would have taken someone at MIT to put it together but thankfully this one was an easy ‘pop a stick across and tie the string’ job. Great when you’re stood there putting it together with three little faces patiently looking up at you.
We found the perfect location to fly our kite over in County Clare in Lahinch, a seaside town with views of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s one of our closest beaches, so much nicer than our nearest beach back in England which was Weston-Super-Mare (or Weston Super Mud as it’s otherwise known). It was a chilly day, but that didn’t stop us from wrapping up warm and heading to the beach to join the rest of the families who were also making the most of it being the last day before the kids went back to school. and
Right behind the beach is a great little park which my 3 had fun playing it, bonus about going later in the morning after the rain had stopped by was that the slide was already dry. Never fun trying to stop a kid with autism who has no understanding of a wet slide equally a soggy bum from going down it.
It was a lovely walk to blow away the cobwebs and as you can see it was the perfect kite flying weather, Charlotte was over the moon that her kite stayed in the sky during the whole time we were on the beach. Lahinch was a stunning setting for our family fun; we look forward to returning as the season’s change.
