Royal Armoury

Time to play catch up! Here are some pictures from a little excursion we took to Leeds a few weeks ago....The Royal Armouries!

This is one of the first items on display as you come in. Needless to say, many of the menfolk don't get too far once they get a gander at these. I enjoyed watching all the annoyed women while they waited for their guys to finish playing (ahem, I am not saying I was one of those women)....boys and their toys!
Her majesty, the Queen...

His Royal Highness...
and the mini-King! (they must be related since they pull the same faces)

This is looking up toward the ceiling. The walls are lined with Knight paraphernalia. It looked really cool standing underneath it.

The boys liked this tent and all the armor.

Nuff said.

They even had some cool Asian displays of their Samurai "knights." It was a fun trip....the boys definitely liked it the most.
