My sister and her husband treated my whole family to a night out. This is no small task for our family of six! They also treated my brother and his sweet daughter to this event. We went to a place all boys love to go--Medieval Times. We were in the green section. We even had green crowns. Stephen loved this because light green and dark green are his favorite colors. He was elated to say the least.
The boys were able to see real knights in action. Live sword fights. Rescue of the damsel in distress. Not to mention we got to eat with our hands and drink soda pop with caffeine. Yes, it was the life. It was a dream come true for all of us.
The boys got swords-like we needed more swords! They were modern day knights fighting the 'bad' guys. We yelled and screamed for our Green Knight and then it happened. We found out he was the bad guy. My boys looked at me with an amazed look of 'WHAT?" Deception is a horrible thing. A lesson learned-deception even comes in your favorite color.
