Finally Spring!!!

It had been so nice here lately.  It really had been such a treat.  The kids have been able to play outside and we have finally been able to get out and got to some more sites.  Over the winter we had tried to go to a castle called Bolsover.  We almost couldn't get out of the parking lot because it was so snowy up there.  So we decided to go yesterday.  They had a special day where period actors were there riding horses and acting.  Also the weekend before we went to a birthday party.  They had hired a face painter.  She did a really good job.  But first of all in the picture line up is some of Mark's promotion pictures.  He worked so hard on getting promoted.  I'm so proud of him.   They let the wives take off the old rank and put on the new rank.

Here is our trip to Bolsover Castle. 

 This was part of the play that we saw there.  Corina got to pet this horse.  It even had it's hair braided.  The girls thought that was cool.  
 Head kiss.

You could get on a wooden horse and try on riding clothes.  

 Gwyneth at the end of the day.  I'm pretty sure we were just in the car for about 5 minutes and then she was asleep.  

That's all for this week.  I hope everyone had a great week.
