Medieval Times

      My husband and the boys remembered our last trip to Medieval Times in Orlando  (you can read about our last trip to Medieval Times here)  and decided they really wanted to go again.  It was very last minute and we weren't even sure if any tickets would be available so we called ahead and found that we could in fact join in that night's events.  We packed up and headed out.  I knew the boys hadn't really liked much of the food that was available last time and I wasn't sure what they were going to eat but they were beyond excited.  Ian was really excited to find out that we were sitting in the red section this time and Evan loved that "our" knights symbol was the griffin.  We sat in the front row and Ian immediately made friends with the guy sitting next to him.  They chatted through the show and Ian even ended up getting an extra dessert out of it!  We enjoyed watching the horses, the falcon, and all the jousting and fighting.  There's a lot of pageantry to the show and it reminded the boys of our medieval study.   Our server offered to scrape some BBQ sauce off of his rib platter and the boys had sauce to dunk their chicken in so they ate lots of chicken, all of their garlic bread, some of their tomato soup and they all tried their potatoes.  I couldn't help but marvel at how much their tastes had changed in just a short amount of time.

We could hear the clink of metal as they used hand to hand combat
