A Wonderful Weekend for My Ladies

When the girls return to school next week, they should be addressed by their new titles,  "Lady Abby" and "Lady Lilli", as they were officially Knighted (by a staff member of the Alpharetta M@rriot) this past Saturday.  ; )

It was the first event of many during their medieval weekend getaway.  

Following the official ceremony, the girls were shown to their royal chamber and given their royal keys and royal attire.  Little did the M@rriot know, but these two ladies travel well prepared and had all of their royal clothing already packed.  

They changed quickly and we were off to a royal viewing of Mediv@l Times.  The show was amazing - dancing Andalusian Stallions, Knights on horseback doing tricks and jousting - and a King and Princess.
It was all so exciting.  The food was yummy too - but very messy!  No silverware!  

Alas, the royal entertainment was over - but that was just fine as there were still a few minutes for the ladies to swim before bedtime!  I do believe all  6 and 7 year olds - royal or not - enjoy a good swim!  

Sunday morning, we all awoke to a breakfast buffet that really was fit for royalty!  Then we made our way a few miles down the road for a fun visit with Uncle Mike, Aunt Courtney, Dillan and Jake!  

It was a wonderful "Last Hurrah" for summer 2011!  
 

We loved how the hotel had a special check in for the girls.

Getting Ready for the show.... Great front row seats! 

Beautiful Princess Lenore.  

All the Knights were so stunning - but we were cheering for the Black and White Knight.

Back in the room after a swim and a bath - acting out all the fun they had seen at the show!
