Day 8: We spent our first day in England at Warwick Castle. Warwick Castle where peacocks and swans roam the gorgeous grounds. Where families can climb, explore and learn about olden times of a castle that was originally built by William the Conqueror back in 1068. My kids were intrigued by the birds. Poor birds.Don’t worry, I didn’t let them touch them. We had rainy weather for pretty much our entire trip. We lucked out most days, as we would go in the museum etc., it would rain. We would come out and it would stop. On this day however, rain hit us. We were soaked to the bone. We pushed through it, huddled up. We toured the indoors first. One of the highlights was the Princess room where princesses talk to our little princesses.
We also thought the catapult was awesome. We were wet but we were still having fun.
The kids tried and tried to pull Excalibur from the stone. After getting totally soaked, we thought about leaving. We opted to eat lunch there first. Glad we did. After lunch, the rain stopped and we were able to do some more fun activities like archery.
Max was a pro, so he told us, you know because he had been to Boy Scout Day camp earlier in the Summer. Katniss is Ellie’s new nick name.We even watched some awesome Falconry. And on the way out we had to try that sword one last time. You know, it stopped raining so it wouldn’t be as slippery this time. Maybe if we all worked together…..Still no luck. If you ever find yourself in Warwick, we highly recommend a visit to Warwick Castle.
