Our first outing was a few weeks ago to the "home" of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire called Chatsworth. This is about an hour away in the Peak District. It's a fairly massive house with nice gardens and farm animals that the kids enjoyed. There was an odd statue or two on the grounds. Nicole enjoyed posing with this one.
Alex's favorite was that of St. Bartholomew (inside the house). I wasn't prepared for all the "how did he get his skin off" questions.
