Chocolate Castles…

A few weekends ago, we took a trip to a chocolate festival in the grounds of a castle nearby. The complete and total irony of this is that, although we had a lovely afternoon with my sister, brother-in-law, and niece and nephew, not one morsel of chocolate passed our lips.
I don’t think I even saw any chocolate.
What’s that all about?
Nonetheless, it was a brilliant afternoon, enhanced by the gorgeous setting, and beautiful weather.
Some snaps below if you want to see…

There were opportunities for the kids to practice their circus skills. It confirmed for me, what I’ve known for many’s a year – this boy is a born performer! 🙂

Check out the concentration on Mr M’s face!

The beautiful grounds of Killyleagh castle. Stunning!


I snapped this picture of my beautiful little niece as we watched the juggling show. Isn’t she a stunner?!

These boys. Always stuck together – so much more like brothers than cousins!

It was one of those afternoons where you don’t hope for too much, and yet it turns out to be pretty brilliant. But then, as with most things, that very often has more to do with the people you’re spending it with, doesn’t it?

    Ok… a few things…
    1. How did I not know there was a such a thing as a chocolate festival!
    2. I would have searched high and low if the chocolate wasn’t easily located!
    3. Yes.. your wee niece is a stunning, as are your kiddies!
    Looks like a fab day x

    Looks like a great outing, gorgeous photos. Castles and chocolate are 2 of my favourite things! I am disappointed that you didn’t actually have any chocolate, though – clearly a missed opportunity. I like the look of the circus activities, and that shot of your niece is beautiful x
