Hoensbroek Castle


The day after Amsterdam was Pentecost so NATO and school were off. A local castle was holding a Medieval weekend so we went there about 1pm. It was a good time to go as people were starting to leave, meaning the children could have a go on lots of the activities without queuing. Jacob's favourite thing was the sword fighting. They put on lots of displays so he was very happy watching those. Abi went on a pony ride dressed as a princess. They both did some medieval painting, with good results. I have included a variety of photos from the afternoon. Next year we'll make sure we go for the whole day and take a picnic, we can cycle to it so it'll make a great day out. It's also included in our musuem card so we'll be visiting it again!
