We had a chance to go to Medieval Times this past weekend. M and T loved it! We started off by receiving our crowns and then got to take a picture with the King and Princess before going into the arena. Once we got in the arena we were thrilled to find out that we got to sit in the front row where we could waive our flags and cheer on our knight! We got to cheer on the red knight, Baron Ruiz de Roig, and he was awesome!
The tournament started off with us welcoming the horses and them giving an awesome performance. M loves horses, and T was just in awe of their size! We then got to see one of the birds of prey fly around the arena, and it landed right in front of us!
Dinner included tomato soup with garlic bread, both M and T loved it. The main course included chicken, a spare rib and herb-roasted potato. Dessert was coffee/tea and an apple turnover. M thought it was totally fun to eat with our hands all evening... T... well... there wasn't much of a change there but he ate a ton! LOL!!
The tournament included different events including jousting and hand to hand battle. Round after round our red knight kept winning and moving on to the next event. Each of the knights who were victorious in the event received flowers to hand out to their court. M was actually named the Queen of the tournament by our knight. He gave her a sash as a token as well....she was in heaven!! A little embarrassed, but she can't stop talking about it! To top it all off, the red knight actually won the whole tournament, so I think our cheering worked!
