|A Battle of Epic Proportions at Medieval Times, Toronto!|
If you've followed along with my blog, you'll know that I'm the mom of 5 kids, ages 3- to 8-years old: 4 wild and crazy boys, and 1 princessly daughter. If you've ever read my article 10 Things Nobody Told Me About Having Boys, you'll understand my boys' psychology. In a nutshell, they love to bonk each other with sticks of all kinds! Bonking sticks can be wooden tree branches, vacuum extension wands, broom handles, a toy sword and more.
No, bonking each other is not "allowed" in my household (or in the backyard for that matter), but my boys will duel until one cries or until there's an injury. Such is the nature of boys! Watch the VIDEO, below, of my 3 oldest kids dueling Darth Vader at Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida.

And it is in that spirit of epic battles that I announce that I'm a Medieval Times Brand Ambassador! There's something primitive and primal about Medieval Times tournaments that resounds in many of us: the thrill of the battle, the drive to be crowned winner, and the adrenaline rush as a contestant or spectator. These are the same kinds of thrills that our ancestors sought in ancient times as they packed the Colosseum in Rome, Italy to watch gladiators in 80 A.D.! Nineteen-thousand and thirty-three years later, this love of the battle remains strong in our blood!
|Medieval Times Offers Dinner & a Tournament!|
My kids are terrifically excited to visit Medieval Times in Toronto next month! Late at night and early in the morning, the boys sneak out of bed and I hear sword fights taking place as they battle for supremacy! My middle son was pretty tearful when his rubber pirate sword snapped during one of these battles, but all turned out okay with a bit of crazy glue! Now he's prepared for an awesome time at Medieval Times!
