Medieval Times - Fun For The Whole Family! #TravelTuesday

About four and a half hours from us, there's a time capsule of sorts. It's a huge attraction, with locations in several different cities in America. Once you enter the doors of this huge castle, you are transported to a different time, a different realm. A time where knights fought to protect their king, win the favor of the princess, and keep the kingdom peaceful. We've visited this attraction several times, and if you've never been to Medieval Times, you need to find your closest castle and book a reservation! Of course, in addition to the show, you get a wonderful dinner as well which makes it even better! I think Medieval Times is a great family attraction, and I'm sure anyone who has ever been to a castle will agree.



Plan to arrive at least an hour before showtime to give yourself time to check-in and then wander the gift stands in the main hall. You can wander the hall to se the horses, enjoy the medieval decor, and purchase some souvenirs. You'll also enjoy seeing the knighting ceremony where youngsters are "knighted" and get a picture with the king. Once the chancellor appears, the real fun begins-getting seated!


Once seated (this is decided by which color section you are in), your server for the evening (a serf or wench) will come and take your drink order. The show begins soon after, while you're enjoying blood soup (tomato) and garlic bread. As the evening continues, more and more food is served, and I'm pretty sure with all the times I've been, I've never once completely finished my meal! Baby dragon, dragon ribs, roasted potatoes, and apple turnover for dessert (I've been known to steal leftover turnovers from the family too!).





While the meal is an attraction in itself, what we're really there for is the show. You will be astounded as you watch the beautiful horses dancing, the hawk flying right over your head in pursuit if his prey, and the tricks the knights perform on horseback. This all ends with duels, and eventually, a chance for the victorious knight to fight (and of course defeat) the challenger from another country. By the time the show ends, you will be cheering right along with everyone else!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
