Castles, farms and repeat

Day 4

The boys slept in again this morning! This is like a real vacation! We started our morning by heading into Killarney National Park at another castle, Ross castle. It's another lovely castle beside a lake. There are ducks and swans in the water and we spent time feeding bread to the ducks. Bennett wanted to touch one but couldn't figure out why they kept running away from him as he chased them around. We then made our way to another farm of course. It's a petting zoo for kids but many of the animals are just one the loose. For example, there are rabbits, guinea bigs,goats, sheep, calves, chickens, deer all just hanging around waiting to be pet. There were also big play areas. We saw 1 day old baby goats being bottle fed that were and tiny little bunnies and lamb and of course, the holy grail of animals...pigs. We seem to be alternating castles with farm. How lucky are we that Bennett confidentially is obsessed with farm animals right now. We ended our day back in the Gap of Dunloe. It's a narrow mountain pass that was formed by glaciers. We took a horse drawn cart, called a jaunting cart up the winding road. A lovely older Irish man was the driver and he gave us history and we were able to have many of our Ireland questions answered. For example did you know that kids learn Gaelic in school here? The view was awesome and the boys loved it as well. In case your wondering how the driving is going, Tyler is getting better. I have only had to tell Tyler we were in the wrong lane once. There are a tonne of roundabouts and we did go around and around one of them because Tyler kept missing the exit. But he's doing a lot better than I would, there's no way I could do this.
