We hadn't been to Medieval times in over five years so it was a totally new experience for three of the kids! They were pretty excited when we told them where we were going that night. As we pulled up Ammon was really excited when he saw the castle. He and Cali just kept whoa-ing :) and saying "A real castle!"  

And it was made ten times more fun with my mom and sis with us! My sister acted so hilarious..made the night THAT much more special :) The other knights cheering sections had NOTHIN on us! We were coming up with all kinds of crap to say about the other knights :) It was so fun. I hadn't laughed that hard in awhile. "You stink!" "Your knights hair color is the color of poo!" "Your horse looks like a zebra!" People probably thought we were drunk. Drunk on love, thats all. Love for our black and gold knight...who lost. Boo! He was the runner up though :)

Sorry Joey that the pics of you didn't turn out so good. He was taking the pics with the good camera. I was using my crappy phone camera. But here he is, the birthday boy with his lil knight:)

 Pics of the scene

 Every time I look at this one, I laugh. She is having a super-dee-duper time.

Grammon. That would be Grandma and Ammon. 

Just a glimpse of how we were acting that night...

Me and my Wesley. He was very entertained that night and really good(especially for how long the show is and how late in the evening it was!) He cheered and clapped. It was adorable. 

 Two beauties waiting for the show

 Our knight, the studliest one there. Even if he was a loser. Man! He was so close.

Ammon wasn't sure what to think :) He and Cali were both pretty serious sometimes! Hahaha, they probably thought someone was really about to die. ;) Cali knew it was pretend but she still couldn't help getting very anxious and squealing sometimes when our knight was fighting. It was so funny!

 Okay, so the second dude from the left was our server. He was so goofy and fun. Here he is as a flagholder...when we realized he was our special server we called out to him and cheered for him. He then he looked over and grinned like we made his day :) Or he is just smiling and internally wishing we would just shut up.  Probably the latter....

Hey, look its Kip from Napoleon Dynamite. 

Surprised about something! :) Even with crusty boogers, this baby is cute. You only think that about your own. Baby that is. Not boogers. Mine are gross.

Don't mess with the hammer(Tara). Or you gonna get pounded. I can't remember what was going on here but I'm assuming she was throwing out fightin words at the opponents :) Or about to punch me.

 Our knight threw me a  flower!

 Tara and her flower. The server was in love with her and gave it to her ;) And she broke it. Which I believe broke his heart.

Ella was excited to get a flower too! Her sisters might have been a smidge jelly. 

 Afterwards the kids got some souvies. Ammon and Wesley got some wooden swords(that have the words "not for play, for display only") Um, okay, Who is going to buy a sword and not play with it?! So yeah, we let them duke it out. Supervised, mind you... 

 And Cali wanted a picture beside the princess. Two princesses, but I think the one on the left is cuter :)
It was a really fun night. Medieval Times is seriously expensive but worth it once every 5-10 years or so to make these kind of memories!! I mean how often do you get to watch knights in battle and eat with your hands in stands cheering and feeling all medievalish! Nevah!

Meeeeeeeeeeeedieeeeevaaaaaaaaaaaaaal Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiimesssss! brrrump, brrrrrruumP!

I had so much fun that night. All the kiddos did great and we made so many fun memories. I loved how we all got so into it. I really thought our Knight would win...but alas, another would be crowned champion. Rigged! :)

Totally rigged! I laughed quite a bit looking at these pictures. I look nuts! I especially loved watching the kids' faces as they watched the knights in battle. They sure got into it. Maybe the crazy is contagious...or just in their blood.
