Travel and adventure taking, memory and home making, parenting and play shaking, never faking, tales of family life.

My boys met Mike the Knight at Warwick Castle and all I got was…

… tales of how much fun they had as guests of Mike the Knight…to stay at home and nurse a hangover…to be covered in make up by my daughter while I felt sorry for myself on the sofa…to watch her ride a pony in a hot stinky shed. Okay, actually we loved our girls’ day, especially the make up and pony riding, but the boys did rave about Warwick Castle.

Mr A did a good job of capturing it. Helped, I might add, by the child who refuses to stand still for a photograph being too entranced to do a runner.

Mr G met Mike the Knight, although as a nearly 5 year old, he was much more excited by the Mike the Knight merchandise and DVD. Here he is arranging the shields on his longboat:

The sandcastles were ‘truly amazing and very impressive’. I wish mine were this artistic.

Mr G also got to try building his own castle:

There were lots of Mike themed activities in celebration of the new DVD release, as seen from Warwick Castle itself, which judging from the angle of this picture must be pretty impressive too.

Mr G came home with an arsenal of weaponry and a big cheesy grin.

My little knight…tooled up ready for action.

And Mr A’s favourite part? I am very proud, he videoed it.

Disclosure – Thanks to HIT entertainment for organising such a fab event and Warwick castle for having us, two exceedingly happy knights in shining armour returned home that night.
