Family Fun Night

Before Dan left I wanted to do something nice all together as a family. After wracking my brain for days, an awesome idea finally came up. We are lucky enough to have a Medieval Times fairly close to where we live and Dan just happens to love the place. We went many years ago in Florida when the kids were small and it was so fun. Of course it costs an arm & a leg but the special right now is buy one get one it only cost an arm. It was supposed to be a complete surprise but he of course figured it out way ahead of time (pain).
So last Saturday we loaded up the kids and headed over there. They were surprised (a bit) and excited (a lot). We got there ages early since seating is first come first served. We walked around and checked out all the gift shop items, yk since you just spent a fortune to get into the place you are obviously looking to spend another $200 on some memorabilia. I did break down and buy the entrance photo they took of the whole group with the King and Princess.
We had the Black and White knight and were there early enough to have a front row seat in our section. Rebecca and Teresa were lucky and got flowers from our knight. I still have the flower that Jaquelyn got when we went many years ago. I will press Rebecca's into a book also.
All in all it was a fun day and hopefully a happy memory for Dan to keep while he is away from us.

How cool. I loved all the pictures and what a fun night for everyone. I am sure Dan will remember this night as special. Cute girls with the knight.
