Also known as, Days I wish I had shards of glass in my eyes.
We went on friday to experience a different era in history, to educate our kids of this unique time, a much less civilized time. Knights in shining armour, bloody battles with crude weapons, you know that sort of thing.
First off, if this was Camelot, then it was a lot smaller than I had pictured, which did have it's perks, like excellent parking close to the entrance. It was amazing being one of only three families there as all these talented individuals portraying the different characters of the time were able to focus on us and almost stalkingly follow us around the grounds. (Let's be honest, who hasn't always wanted a stalker!) These guys were pretty classy, imagine if you will those fine people who help with the travelling circus, now add more awesomeness to the picture and whalah, you have the people of camelot!
Then there was the varities of chocolate....I'll let my wife Paulette tell you about that. (Please see Paulettespoint.blogspot.com)
My favorite part would have to be the belly dancer. I have posted a picture for your viewing pleasure. (Thanks to The Spectrum for your wise choice of pictures)

Our firstborn. She is like her dad in so many ways...always making jokes and writing stories. She brings life and excitement to our family!
Our sweet boy! He has such a tenderheart and loves to please people. He is alot like his mom. He is so patient and smart, I don't know how we ever got along without him.
Our little miracle! He is such a joy to have in our family! His brother and sister love and adore him. He is a bit stubborn and he loves to be tickled and he will smile at just about anyone who will give him the attention.
Nine years ago we met, fell in love, got married, had a kid, and then another, and then another. You know, the usual. I guess you could say we are a typical family who lead simple lives. I profoundly say that there is so much joy to be found in the typical and simple things of life. I am very much looking forward to what the next nine years will bring.
