Warwick Castle with Mom and Dad

We had so much fun during my parent's visit. One place we visited was Warwick Castle in Warwick, England. It was a nice drive and a beautiful castle. About the only drawback was that it was very 'Disney'd'. Kind of like a Renaissance festival meets a true historical castle.

The kids were trying to figure out what was inside the tent, but too scared to actually go in.

The decor and ceiling were amazing to me. Such detail in every corner, every angle, amazing artwork!

Another beautiful ceiling.

This was a beautiful blue boidouir (sp?). The painting, tapestry, and everything else was all original and just gorgeous.

The kids REALLY wanted to shoot a bow and arrow. Joci did very well at it.

We had a proper English tea in Warwick in a 500 year old house. So cool. While sitting in this room I would say that the floor slanted a good 5 to 6 inches.

I'm so glad your parents got to come over and see you guys. It's a bummer about the castle being so disneyd out....I guess tourism. kinda unfortunate though.
