Winding down the year

As the school year comes to the end, tests, parties and trips keep kids busy.

The school trip this year was to Medieval Times for an afternoon of food games and tournament.  Actually for school trips there is a brief introduction to the world of jousting and chivalry.  I chaperoned for MM's class and had to keep  tabs on MM and one of her friends.

LB cruised through the day with two buddies, one dad, and one granddad.  Needless to say there were plenty of  parental units along so none had too many children to keep track of during the day.

Making more fun - MM's group stood to support the Yellow night while LB's group supported the blue night.  These were two of the six nights jousting for the honor of tournament champion.  Neither of our knights won the tournament but a good time was had by all.

If you can enjoy a time of suspended reality, watch beautiful animals, and enjoy a simple meal; a round at Medieval Times can be fun for an entire family.
