Higgins Armory

This armory full of knights and swords and jousting horses is a must see, especially for boys!


The castle made of steel and glass makes for a perfect medeival atmosphere.


This good looking group heard about "get in free" day, and were one of the first in line.


If you can't get to the knights, they come to you.




And they let you be the knight!


Authentic chain mail


Just one sample of the beautiful windows


Ancient hardware


Porter's choice of dress


Cooper and Mason enjoying the views.


These two boys were inseparable!


What a face!


Hands-on table


Enjoying a private joke


Recycling in the 1500's - armor hammered into a key lock for a door


The kids room was a nice reprieve from all the "don't touch" signs


A group effort to build a castle



One of my favorite scenes




No matter what he's behind, the face is always worth preserving




The group in a classroom demonstration



Porter chosen to assist


Saying good byes to the knights

For some reason, you left out the part about my kids having a tantrum. They missed out big time but they loved the game room. Maybe in a few more years.

Lots of great pictures. I hope that we can one day get out that way. We will need Mr. Brown Sign to be our guide.
