Medieval Times for the Holidays!



Hi neighbors!

Guess where we were able to go for dinner when we were in Chicago?  Yep, we went to Medieval Times of Chicago!  It was GREAT!  My husband and I, along with 16 year old M were able to go the Thursday evening before ChiTag.  It was so much fun!  They request you get there early, and this gives you time to see some of the horses, look at the displays and if you wish, you can tour the dungeon.  The man who is in charge of the dungeon does a super job in his position.  My husband has toured the dungeon before, so we did not go through this time.


Before entering the dinner area, they have a knighting ceremony for those who pay extra for this.  It is fun watching children being knighted.


When you enter the seating around the arena you are assigned a color and that is the knight you will be cheering for.  This makes for alot of fun during the evening.  I have to confess my daughters and I love watching the horses.  Throughout the evening a story is acted out in front of you which includes the King, his daughter the princess and of course the knights.  I do not want to give away any of the story, but I will tell you it is interesting.  You will see a hawk training for the hunt, several displays of horsemanship and of course the knights will show off their skills.


During the show, you get a delicious meal.  Chicken, a rib, soup, a seasoned potato, garlic bread, and a pastry and of course your drink.  Now, one think that most people find unique is, you eat everything with your hands.  No silverware.  My daughter and I usually have leftovers.


The show and dinner was a great evening for us.  Yes, tickets may seem a little pricey at first, but realize all you get.  Also if you follow the Chicago Castle on Facebook they often have giveaways and occasionally you can find specials for buy one get one free.

Here is some really great news.  We get to hold a giveaway for 4 tickets to the Chicago Castle.  If you live in or near Chicago, or know someone who does, be sure to enter this giveaway.  Or maybe you will be visiting Chicago for the holidays.



Please be sure to watch both videos!  They will give you just a taste of what Medieval Times Chicago is like.

I always like the romance and chivalry of the times. The mode of dress that they had back then and the overall all simplicity of that time period.

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes).
