What did you do this Bank Holiday?

With the Belmore Court & Motel and most hotels in Enniskillen full for the Bank Holiday Weekend I decided to take the family a few places to relax and enjoy the good weather - Let's not forget it's back to school on Wednesday.

On Saturday we went to the Valley Hotel in Fivemiletown to Circus workshop and funday supported by Dungannon District Council. Lisa Williamson and committee has organised a number of events. There was a bouncy castle and inflatables outside along with people representing the Niamh Lousie Foundation and Drink Aware. There was also a disco, a Todd's Leap competition and sparkley temporary tattoos by Over the Moon. Inside the function room of the Valley Hotel there was a educational puppet show about dropping litter and the Circus workshop by

The older kids with us loved the workshop the most, while the youngest loved getting a sparkley tattoo and the bouncey stuff. The 2 people from the workshop were fab and communicated well with the 10 kids that were able to take part. Starting off with some team introduction games they then moved on to juggling, hat tricks, stilts and finally the unicycle. A great day was had by all.

On Sunday I brought my eldest to the National Trust's Crom Castle for the Classic Sailing event. There were vintage cars at the old ruins, steam boats, yachts and the Lough Erne Yacht Club were doing a learn to sail day - but we were too late.

It was a magnicient sight to see the flotilla back on Lough Erne for the 1st time in almost 100 years at Crom. We had many residents staying with us from the event and they all said they had a fantasic time.

Monday was back into Enniskillen for the Enniskillen Castle Fun Day. Free family entertainment for the whole family. Drum school, dance classes, tanks, magicians, punch & judy and off course the bouncey castle.

Record numbers came to the Castle museum to see what was happening.

Phew it was a busy couple of days but thankfully the weather held out for us.
