hello monday {warwick castle, england}

November 12th | adventures, family, hello monday

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing pics from Warwick Castle. At this point you may be asking yourself, “When are the pictures of England going to end?”. The answer is, “Not for a while, and I don’t want to hear any complaining.” Just kidding! I feel like I am always saying, “No complaining!” to my kids. I still have a few adventures to share with you. I hope you don’t mind. Warwick Castle is the most kid-friendly castle we’ve visited. They have hot dogs, ice cream, art projects, baby changing rooms, etc. The kids love it, plus it’s packed with history!

How about some hellos for a brand new week?

Hello restful weekend. I think we needed that.

Hello love. David has been changing so much lately. I see more opinions, more stubbornness, more intention. These things are so beautiful.

Hello dreaming. Matthias recently heard the song, ‘I want to be a billionaire‘ and it’s got him thinking about how he would spend the big bucks. Hint, it pretty much revolves around legos.

Hello wallpaper. it’s so inspiring, don’t you think? I’m thinking we need a fun wall in our house.

Hello suitcases. Not completely unpacked yet. Yikes.

Hello fun stuff. I hope you’re signed up for our newsletter because there is some seriously fun stuff being announced this week!! {you can sign up on the left side of my blog <———–}

Hello oil paintings. The sheer number and antiquity of the oil paintings we saw all over England had me in awe.

Hello fall. Hello cold weather. Is it too early to play Christmas music? Because I want to!

Hello missing these sweet girls. Sigh.

Hello healthy. Good-bye sugar. We’re trying. It’s not easy.

Hello fireplace. Hot coffee. Cozy blanket. I love cold mornings. But it’s so hard to get moving!

Hello Monday! Thanksgiving is next week {gasp!}. So much to do. So much fun. I love it!

    Great photos…isn’t traveling fun. Too funny about the Lego. My son was searching the Lego site yesterday and said, “Mom, it would cost about $200,000 to buy all the Lego sets I’d like.” heh heh

    • Lisa Leonard says:

      It’s really hard but I think over time it will get easier. I just try to keep it out of the house so I’m not tempted!
