Our Family Fun Day Out
The Ballina Lion's Club arranged a St Dymphnas and St Nicholas Fun Day. It was held at Belleek Castle. We brought Dian and he had a brilliant day.
The Gardaí, the firemen and the the Order of Malta were all there. Dian loved seeing the fire truck, the Garda van and the ambulance. He got to go inside the Garda van and the ambulance and the people were so welcoming and friendly. He also got to sit on the Garda motorbike and I think if he could he would've brought it home! He got to play with some of the equipment in the fire truck and the fireman was very patient and helpful.
He got a spin around in the old fashioned wheelbarrow. He really enjoyed especially when he went fast! We also went for a spin around the grounds of Belleek Castle on a trailer on the back of a tractor! We went on this many times as it was his favourite part.
There was also face painting, a photo booth and a small dance room set up but they didn't appeal to Dian as much as the bouncy castles did. He had great fun on them with our brother Tuan and his friends Dylan and Ruairi. To finish off the day we all got ice cream.
Overall, it was a great, exciting day out and I loved seeing Dian so happy and enjoying himself. I hope you enjoyed reading about our adventure!
