While Mrs mememe2u was checking out the arts festival in Kilkenny, the kids and I went for a relaxing walk to Dalkey hill and Killoiney beach.

The main topic of conversation was what would be the fastest death.
We estimated death from being stabbed in the heart at between 10 and 15 seconds.
They reckoned that the guillotine would be a pretty nifty exit, with very little time to feel much pain. But a bit messy.

Then we talked about cross breeding between species, and the possibility of recreating dinosaurs from reasonably preserved DNA.

All in all a nice, relaxing walk and chat.

Then we had Chinese dumplings.

    It’s wonderful that you can have a chat like that with your kids; it will really open up the way for deep conversations when they get older. I’ve never had that type of relationship with my parents, and I sometimes find it hard to open up on touchy topics to them. Beautiful photos!

    Thanks for this, I had forgotten how frank and straightforward kids are – so important to discuss this type of stuff (well, any type of stuff!) with them. Love the 2nd pic particularly – perfect 🙂
