The Tour began in the Great Hall where they had all of the tables set up for a Christmas feast. Old Costumes were also set up around the room of the different houses (slytheryn, griffendor, etc….)
The tour was self-guided and had tons of actual props and room set-ups which where like totally awesome 😉 There were videos and placards with fun facts and information on the different pieces. There were 2 different buildings to go through and an outdoor area. Since it’s self guided, you could be done as fast or slow as you wanted. The guide told us the record times were 20 minutes for the fastest and 8 hours for the slowest. JR and I ended up spending around 2 hours there, but we were also with a group that was a bit faster than us….so we went more quickly so we wouldn’t make them wait.
Milo likes to eat chalk. Yes, CHALK… it goes in colorful… that’s led to a few laughs..
Milo has some cute new habits. Anytime she makes a mess or something she comes running over to me saying uh-oh and pointing over in the direction of the scene of the crime…..and drags me over there.
This is what I like to call a reality shot. The image captures the whole situation. Milo running wild and free…daddy going after her in exasperation just wanting to listen to the audio without his child running under the boundary ropes…. such is life…and parenting. 🙂 Good thing she’s so cute.
Here’s Milo and Aunt T…. don’t you just lover her red hair! She was working with Milo on sign language and Milo (in the 2 week) period has already started signing more, food, milk, please…. we are working on help, but it’s a little advanced 🙂 I am so impressed with her. It has also helped to decrease her frustration.
Here are the two lovely ladies twirling about… Milo loves to twirl and get dizzy. Sometimes it’s nice to tap into your inner joy/free spirit and let go. Being a mom has really helped me to realize that. In church yesterday, I just wanted to bust out into twirling and jumping during this particularly fun song…. I didn’t…for fear that my husband might disown me….jk, but not really.
and another 🙂
It’s amazing what kids pick up. Milo is all about phones…. mainly she likes to watch videos of herself on the phone. I think we are going to have a star on our hands. Also, I only wear make-up maybe 25% of the time, but Yet Milo knows what to do with the brushes. If I give her one to play with, she immediately starts brushing it on her face.
It’s on a little island just of the coast…. at low tide, a walk way is revealed for you to trek across.
This castle is still home to the St. Aubyn Family…..and has buildings dating back to the 12th Century.
