Ikea Dublin's First Birthday Celebrations

  I didn't make this cake

I got a message from Ikea the day before yesterday about this. So, I decided to bring the kids over there. As expected, the car park was full and I had to make a few rounds to eventually get a space. After managing to get out of the car, our journey began.

There were so many activities going on that day. There was a live band and bouncing castles at the entrance, face painting and testing the birthday cake at the ground floor and then straight to the restaurant and show rooms where one could get modelled balloons for the kids. Another live band in the restaurant and also a treasure hunt for free ice cream topped it all off.

Can you spot Hisham?

As we arrived right on lunch time, my God! The queues were so long and the place was flooding with people. You can just imagine how it was as I was alone with the kids and at the same time, trying to get something to eat at the counter. This where I wished my other half was there to help...

Hisham was so teruja with Ms Clown

After almost 4 hours of struggling to have a go at all the events for the kids, I finally managed to drag all of us to the exit. I didn't go there to buy anything so, we went straight to present the treasure hunt form at the counter and got ice cream and candy floss for all our hard work. We gave the free popcorn a miss as I told my kids we had too much junk for one day.

Everything was free except for the lunch...but it's still very good value

Tired but enjoying all the free stuff

It was a challenging day for me but I survived. I was just happy to see that my kids enjoyed the day. Oh, and this song is dedicated to all the readers of my blog out there...

Just in case you're wondering, all the festivities didnd't actually end yesterday. Like an orang kaya-kaya's wedding, the celebrations will go on for another few days over the weekend up to this bank holiday Monday.
