Quote of the Day 76

At bedtime the other night on a random topic during snuggle.

BigE "And that's how the knight can get inside the castle"

Dada "How did you know that?"

BigE "I can read your mind!"

More Knights

Seeing how we don't have our camera right now, I'll send you to the WB's post on the Medieval Fair we caught at Upper Canada Village.

No Pics?

Can't seem to find the camera since we've gotten back from TO. So its
a) missing inside the house
b) in Auntie Bevie's vehicle
c) still in TO at Auntie Ninny

Stay tuned

Went to See the Knights

We were in TO the past weekend so we decided to head to Medieval Times. It's a dinner show with knights done in an old arena. They have it dressed up (or rather down) to match the period. With plenty of gift shops.

The dinner was half a chicken, a rib, soup, potato, garlic bread and dessert. All eaten medieval style with your bare hands. The chicken and soup were pretty good. The potato, was well, just half a potato roasted and seasoned. Themed I guess you'd call it.

They had 6 knights. Your champion is based on which section you were sitting in. We were in the Blue section. Against the riding, horse and falconing demonstrations there is a sub plot about the prince being kidnapped. That was a little hard to make out with a scared little boy in your lap. (I'd say on a scale of 1 to 10 it was really about a 4.)

The knights jousted and had swordplay. This was during the second half of the show. It was around this time BigE started coming out of his shell. It was a pretty good show. I was curious how they would knock each other off their horses. Given they do 8 or 9 shows a week.

We picked up some tickets on a 2 for 1 deal which made it all worth it. We had the flexibility to do that. With scared boy the 2 for 1 made it worth all the "Its scary" talk during the first half.

Nanny Barb picked the boys up a souvenir from the gift shop. So now we have a wooden medieval shield with a picture of a blue knight on it. BigE loves it. Thanks Nanny Barb.

Quote of the Day 75

Dada "What do you want for breakfast?"

BigE "Hmm .. how about Rice Krispies? You know one of my Nannies had these and they were really good"

Dada "That was Nanny Dot"

BigE "Yeah. I forgot. It was on a trip a loonggg time ago"

(As if it was years and years ago!)
