It was a fabulous (k)night, full of food, fun and a VERY well behaved boy. Red fell asleep as soon as we hit the car and hardly woke up to get into the bed. He loved the evening so much, we can hardly wait to take him back!
We finally took Red to Medieval Times Atlanta. Being three years old, we were really afraid that Red wouldn’t listen to us, get restless in his seat, or be a little afraid of the smoke and strobe lights. But we were wrong! We bought Red a flag and a dagger (mini wooden sword) and he was “all in” to the action, the horses and the jousting.
While the silhouettes at MT are pretty good, I’m aching to change all the fabrics and trim of the Princess dress – they aren’t period AT ALL. And sometimes the silhouettes tried to combine eras. I mean really – have you ever seen a knight wear sequins? 🙂 Since it’s all in good fun, I have to remember that showmanship is the name of the modern game… current audiences are like the Romans, we need a little flash and suspense to keep up the hype!
We ended up trading our previously loved black and white flag for a Blue Knight one, and Red was in love. When I hid it during the meal, he looked to me and asked, “Mama, where my flag go?” His knowing look of a swap was so funny!
Our blue knight did splendidly, and won all the events – however, he did not win the battle. He lasted until the third round.
