What a fabulous place to visit, we spent over 3 hours walking around the Ulster Museum. They have displays on pretty much everything you can imagine, wildlife, under water creatures, ice age, stone age, bronze age.
The “Age of the Dinosaur” exhibition was also running while we were there, 6 huge animatronic dinosaurs, so realistic. Unfortunately there was no photograph allowed in that area, Ben was amazed with the exhibition, so life-like. If you ‘re ever in Belfast I’d highly recommend you visit the Ulster Museum.

Ben went off canoeing today with his scout group to train for his level 1 paddling badge. As part of the training he also received his Paddle Power Start certificate.
He enjoyed it so much he wants to join the local canoeing club.
Scouting Ireland – Paddling Level 1 & Paddle Power Start in the one day, well done Ben!

We all decided we would have a weekend away camping to get a feel for it before we go away with the scout group, so we packed up the car and headed to Battlebridge in County Leitrim.
If you’re looking for somewhere quite and relaxing this is the place to go. The campsite is located right beside the river Shannon about 3km outside Leitrim town.
Weather was good for most of the weekend and we all had a great time. Can’t wait for our next trip.
2nd & 3rd June 2012
After weeks of planning, buying clothes, ordering food, finding places for people to sleep, we all had a fabulous day. Ben was preparing for this day for months and really enjoyed himself.
We had lots of family down to celebrate the day with us. The rain held off and we had barbeque outside followed by a night of telling stories and having the craic.
It’s great when the family get together, we should do it more often.
