Soave Castle Part II--After the Castle

When I get 2 more followers, we will have a GIVEAWAY here on Via Fontanelle!! CLICK HERE to learn how to be a follower if you don't know how.


If you haven't read Part I about our tour of Soave castle, go HERE.

If you have, here's the part of the story that we don't tell most people.  When it was all said and done that day, our family had experienced a GREAT day--one that I hope we'll always remember....

Was it because the castle itself was so awesome?

Probably not....

Was it because we endured enjoyed the torture of dragging ourselves exercise up to the top of the hill to  the castle....

I don't think so...

Here's the part we don't tell most people:

This guys started it...

Remember this part of the inner wall of the castle?

Steve climbed the stairs, went in the doorway, and out on the ledge.  So, naturally, everyone wanted to climb the stairs, go through the doorway, and out on the ledge.  So we did.  It wasn't the going up that was so funny...it was the coming down.  Once again, Steve started it.




If you have kids, or have ever been around kids, or ever were a kid, you understand what happened next: Monkey See, Monkey Do...

Jackson saw Delilah, so natural, he wanted to jump off....and so on....  So we did....all of us...for the better part of an entire hour!

It was AWESOME!

The girls

Trey


Jackson

Delilah

Even Tory got in on the action...



Even Steve and I gave it a try.  The Italians starred at us like we were lunatics...but damn, we had a great time!!
