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!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
