Mother's Day at Medieval Times
This afternoon, in honor of Mother's Day, and all the Mother's in the family, my Aunt Sandy treated the entire side of my Dad's family, and then extended the offer to include Steven's Mom and Grace's Mom, to a mid afternoon dinner and tournament at Medieval Times. It was a fun and different way to spend the day and it was a really neat opportunity to do something we've never gotten to experience.The show started off a little rocky for Rachel. It was dark, there was fog, and it was loud. She cried and was frightened. Thankfully, there was a Mother/Daughter two people down, that told us it would get lighter soon. After that, she was able to sit in her own chair and enjoyed the show.
This was the opening scene.Upon entering the castle, we were told we'd be cheering on the Blue Knight, and we each got blue crowns to wear showing our support. There were also coordinating flags (thanks Aunt Judy!!) to wave in celebration and support of our knight. Rachel loved waving the flag.There were a couple of times that our knight had flowers to give to the maidens in the audience. Here, he questions if Rachel wants a flower. It was a fun show, with all the Knights doing tournament games. There was a bit of a story to it, but I kinda got lost. LOL. Once we got past that opening scene, Rachel had fun!
