Palais Liechtenstein

Some of Chris’ classes were in the Palais Liechtenstein – must be nice to go to school in a palace. The palace is also home to an art museum, and Chris has been wanting to go for awhile. There is also a really awesome park on the grounds. So off we went to the art…

Neuburg Museums

The first place Elora said she wanted to show Grandma was the “Knight Museum” so we headed over to the Neuburg to see the collection of musical instruments and the armory. They have new audio guides that show pics of the items and also play samples of music from many of the instruments. This was…

We headed over a couple weeks ago to check out the market, and the kids got to wear their knight costumes. Here is Ollie holding a real sword. He doesn’t look that happy…

London – Last Day & Windsor Castle

Elora really loved listening…
