We have just returned from a two week holiday in Co. Kerry in the southwest of Ireland.
It was generally a great trip, although it wasn’t particularly relaxing (let’s be honest – having two young kids and being seven months pregnant and anaemic felt like hard work at points!). However, it was lovely having Josh all to ourselves for two whole weeks and getting to explore a new part of the world.
The scenery in Kerry is absolutely wonderful and our cottage was right next to the beach. Unfortunately we had rain every day we were away which made things difficult, but we dodged the showers and managed to enjoy getting outside. Most days I was layered up in winter clothing so it has been a shock to come back to a heatwave in the UK!
The kids loved exploring new places and as always I was so impressed with Ivy as she (mostly!) kept up with us as we went climbing up into the mountains without complaining
I especially loved seeing the joy of the kids faces as they played and explored on the beach – definitely the highlight of our holiday
You can see more of our holiday in the video below. Shaky camera hands aside I love putting these little videos together for our girls to look back on in years to come.
