the kids slayed a dragon,
chatted with Sir Autumn,
visited with the greyhounds, the dog of royalty,
watched a glassblowing demonstration,
witnessed Sir Maxmilian "perish" in the joust, (Car Guy's favorite part of the day),
met a fairy,
hoped that a dragon didn't eat Curly Girl,
marveled at the falconry demonstration (twice),
tried some archery,
checked out reproductions of swords from The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter,
selected a broom for a quidditch match,
and thoroughly enjoyed the sword fighting, even though I am not looking forward to Car Guy trying his hand at the stage fighting tricks.
All the while wondering, how do seemingly sane grown adults get into this hobby? Curly Girl and I decided that we would be rather frightened if after meeting someone, we realized they owned their own mace and very large swords.
