Beach and Medieval Times

The second day of our trip was full of fun. We woke up that morning and had room service. After we were done with breakfast, we ran to Target to get some treats, drinks and sand toys for our stay. After we were stocked up, we went down to the beach behind our hotel. It was the beach of Mission Bay so there weren't any waves and the water was super warm, which Landon loved. The boys had a great time looking for and collecting seashells. Around 1:30, we headed back to our room to get ready. We had planned to take the boys to Medieval Times (a dinner and jousting/knight show) as a surprise. It started at 6:30 and we wanted to be there about and hour early to look at stuff, so we planned to leave at 3. It's a good thing we did because it took us three hours to less than 100 miles to where the show was at! It was crazy. We got there just in time to use the bathroom, get some swords and shields and get sat down. To say that the boys loved it would be an understatement! They thought it was so awesome and were totally in awe of the knights, their horses and the fighting! They did think it was kind of crazy that we had to eat our dinner (chicken, ribs, potatoes, bread, soup and apple pie) without any utensils! It was so fun to watch them and they have been toting around their new swords and shields since we got home!
Enjoying some breakfast in the room.

This little boy decided to figure out the crawling thing right before we left and was a crazy mobile man the entire time we were there.

Carson and some of his shells.

Grandma took Carson and Travis for a walk down the beach to see if they could find more shells.

Landon had a real hard time refraining from eating the sand.

Playing in the water. The water was just about as warm as  his tubs at home!

Cute boys!

One of Carson's favorite shells he found.

We bought a bunch of little pops...they were just the right size for the boys and me!

Enjoying some left over pizza after the beach.

The boys waiting for the show to start.

All geared up and ready to watch some knights.

We had royalty sitting so we got special flags, books and cups with our dinner, plus we were in the second row!

Everyone is sitted in different colored sections and you cheer for the knight that corresponds with your color. We were cheering for the yellow knight. He didn't win (blue knight always wins!) but the boys thought he did a good job.

Carson and his sword.

In total awe!
