The child has his Boston accent down-pat.
Their favorite fact from the book is that a knight's helmet weighs 40 pounds. So, exactly like having Colin sitting on your head! Here's the tour of our day in "Shinin' Ahmah!"
Video would have been better here as one of the boys mentioned something about an evil knight on Scooby Doo (so much for raising a TV-free family) so they both kept glancing backwards to make sure the Black Knight did not suddenly regain the ability to use his previously severed limbs.
ARTHUR: Look, you stupid bastard. You've got no arms left.
BLACK KNIGHT: Yes, I have.
BLACK KNIGHT: Just a flesh wound.
At any rate...
Since we came back, Liam is all about sword-play now and lashing out when he senses a dragon or some other undesirable reptile in his general vicinity. Colin liked it just fine but seems to have let it all go and moved onto a new story. Not sure if I can convince them to help Daddy to finally build a trebuchet.
The sport of kings may be horse racing the haute couture of kings involves GQ-style poses in medieval arches and clip-on neckties. I swear I did not force them to wear these things. I was even dressed-down in shorts and a golf shirt!
What day would be complete without Colin doing something artistic (rubbings of a brass plate with a knight and a dragon) and Liam running around like...Liam!
All in all, it's great fun to visit and the Higgins Armory staff do a wonderful job. There's some interesting history of Worcester, MA.
Now, bring me a shrubbery!
