- Medieval Day Out
- August 27th, 2011
We took the kids out this morning to Bishop Lucey Park in town to see and demonstration of arms and armour by Medieval reinactors. This was a great success, and the kids loved the stocks and mock fighting drills they got to partake of.
Oscar in particular threw himself into the fighting (with a length of foam pipe insulation in place of a real sword, thankfully). I'll add pics later to Flickr to demonstrate. Poor Sir Robert was volunteered by his companions as a villain for the mock battles and was duly walloped with foam swords by as many as a dozen kids simultaneously.
Much fun was had by all, especially Sam and me when we nearly wet ourselves laughing at Oscar who when challenged to show he 'was a great warrior' promptly claimed he could take on two opponents at once. He then whacked his first opponent 1-2-3 on the legs and turned on the other fellow who was stunned and easily defeated. I dubbed him Sir Oscar the Mad, inspired by his Love of Walloping.
