there are people in costume who work there, but the real sight is the people watching. apparently the incredible hulk lived in the renaissance era?
levi was unimpressed with most of it, but, luckily for us, he is easily entertained by shoulder rides.
in spite of staying there for 8 hours (we drove 2 hours to get there...gotta get your money's worth!), levi napped for a hot second and didn't have any big meltdowns, so all in all it was a successful trip! it wasn't incident thought, since we've entered the "dead weight" stage when he throws a fit. we had many episodes of him stubbornly pouting/sitting in the dirt when we wouldn't let him eat the gravel, walk down the hill and back up again 20 times, or just be confined in any way.....you know, typical toddler activities.
the other baby with us was all in to it and would clap when the jousters hit each other, but levi was all like...
apprehension mixed with why aren't you letting me run around in the dirt?
i'm actually looking forward to going back next year when levi is older and can enjoy some of the shows more, although i don't think he'll be able to grasp the gravity of how awesome Johnny Fox, the sword swallower/magician extraordinaire actually is.
oh well, it was a fun (yet exhausting) trip. see you next year maryland!
