Beautiful walk to the beach with the kids and dog! It was sunny, warm, spacious and just what we needed. AND there wasn't any complaining! Thankful for our gorgeous home & planet!

See that laptop and books right there?

Yeah, it's been sitting in that same spot untouched all day. Mason has completely hit his limit with this "distance learning". And I'll be honest I'm almost ready to call it summer break already(a month early)! It was going so well until about 2 weeks ago when his defiant personality decided it was done with this type of schooling, and depression and social anxiety in full swing! Isolation is so tough on ours/everyone's mental health and I don't know if we can take anymore of it!

2020 is the year I told myself I'd start focusing on a healthier lifestyle and one thing I've been working on is eating a plant based diet. I've still got a ways to go but I'll get there and so far I feel great! 🌳I've partnered with LightLife to bring you this post, but all opinions are my own. One thing I'm new to is tempeh, after eating the vegan tacos I made, I'm totally sold! I made these amazing tacos with sweet potatoes and Lightlife Original Tempeh. I didn't miss the meat at all!
🌳Tempeh can be used for a number of meals as a protein replacement, available for purchase at your local grocery store(I've found ours at Fred Meyer and @imperfectfoods ) typically for $3.49. Easy to prep, vegan certified, has a savory and slightly nutty flavor, non-GMO and 12g of protein.

Medieval Times Buena Park, CA

Sharing is caring!

We are back, actually have been for the past week, from our vacation to California. The last time I was in Anaheim was over 20 years ago my parents had taken us to Medieval Times, I just remember it being so awesome. I just knew we had to add it to our must do/see, that Mason would LOVE it! And I wasn’t wrong, we had an amazing time.

Have you visited Disneyland in Anaheim, CA or at least thought about visiting? There is this awesome little castle/village/place where they serve yummy food, live entertainment just minutes away from Disneyland. MEDIEVAL TIMES!

Horses, actors, jousting, tasty food that you get to eat with your hands(favorite part).

The moment we pulled up to the castle Mason was in awe, it is a “real” castle and the ivy was so beautiful! We got our tickets and were assigned on the yellow team, all the staff were dressed in appropriate attire even some guests were dressed up. Medieval Times definitely goes all out. Seats are first come, first serve so arrive early if you want close seats(but really no seat is bad). They give you crowns to wear and keep, they have a bar, gift shop, they have a falcon who flies through the stadium part of the show.

After we got seated the entertainment started and lasted non stop for two hours. We cheered, laughed, Mason jumped and screamed a few times. He had no idea it was all staged :)

The food was wonderful and very filling! Bread, soup, chicken, potato, corn and a dessert. The best part you get to eat with your hands! :) Mason really enjoyed it all, sometimes he can be very picky but he ate everything and even helped me finish my chicken. Come hungry!!

Yes, it can be a little pricey but it is definitely worth it. Two hours of great entertainment and service and delicious food. But most importantly memories that will last a lifetime!! There are a couple ways to save on your tickets; go check out the deals here.

Just a couple tips;

if your taking children go for the earlier showing, it is after all a 2 hour show and there is noise, wouldn’t want crabby children

it is definitely not just for families and children, everyone of all ages will love it!

if you have children with very sensitive ears you may want to bring ear plugs, there was a few times Mason had to plug his ears because the cheering got too loud

the horses run through sand/dirt so it’s a bit dusty, so if you have breathing problems(both Mason and I have asthma) you may want to take inhalers/meds, or just be ready for it

 

After watching the show, the animal lover that I am, I was wondering about the treatment of the horses before, during and after their time.

“Training begins early. As weanlings, Medieval Times horses are introduced to lead ropes and halters. Saddles come at age 2. Long reins and simple exercises such as lunging follow. At age 3, the horses move to their new homes — one of our nine North American Castles — where they learn advanced-level dressage from a master horse trainer. Then life as a pampered performer begins.

After a few years in the spotlight, the Medieval Times horses move back to the Chapel Creek Ranch. In the serene setting, we make sure our horses live out their lives in royal treatment.”

Don’t worry there is more than just the California location, you can find a list of locations throughout the US, go check it out here.
