Picnic At The Lake




One warm day, in Athlone, we decided to take a walk before lunch, and have a picnic around the lake.  From the pictures, it looks overcast and breezy, but it was actually quite warm and so was perfect weather to take a stroll and enjoy the sights.


This Dog Decided He Liked Hanging Out With Us!

This was actually one of my favourite times in Athlone.  It was so beautiful to sit by the lake, watching the children play, enjoying a time of rest together and smelling the fresh water.

We All Thought This Stone Was Neat!
It Was Sliced Through In Three Parts




Abigail LOVED Throwing Stones!

Once we had returned from our walk/picnic, I settled Abigail down for her nap, while the rest headed out on the boat!  Though, because the wind was so high at that point, my husband decided not to go out on the open lake, but just row around the marina; better safe than sorry!  The kids didn't seem to mind though and said they still had fun.

In the evening, we headed into the city centre for the first evening of the conference.  Sadly, I didn't think to take the camera along to the conference, and now very much regret having no pictures to enjoy and share. :(  We did have a nice time though, and enjoyed the speakers and meeting new friends.
