Adventures in the Magic Kingdom

In the Magic Kingdom live a brother and sister, Royal Prince and Princess of the kingdom. Together they reign, each in their own castles, but share equally in the duties keeping their whole kingdom happy and healthy...

It was a beautiful spring day after many days of rain and storm so the Princess and Prince decide to invite everyone out to enjoy the sunshine at the tournament grounds. There the Royal pair are approached by a Squire in good standing that has been sent by the Royal Guard with high praise of deeds done in battle that honor the kingdom.
In gratitude, having proved himself worthy, the Prince dubs him K-Knight the Bold.
Across the field there is the sound of horse hooves quickly approaching...
...It is Princess Knight having been gone on high adventures herself. Hearing of the gathering at the tournament grounds she hurried home to join in the fun.

In the spirit of tournament the newly knighted K-Knight challenges Princess Knight to do battle.
And the mock battle begins...
Tournaments provided a means for knights to practice warfare and build their strength in times of peace. Good block Princess Knight!
The Prince and Princess are pleased by the skills of their knights.
You managed to dodge that one K-Knight!
But Princess Knight's weaponry and experience far outweigh yours...
...and the Princess Knight is victorious again.
The Princess and Prince thank everyone for attending and call the tournaments over for the day.
The Princess hopes that there are many more beautiful days to enjoy during the coming season.
Princess Knight leaves with the Prince to journey to his castle since she has not had one built yet. With all her traveling and going on adventures she has not had time to think about setting up housekeeping. So for now she will be a guest of her brother and be his protectorate while she's there.
K-Knight the Bold accompanies the Princess on her journey to her castle to ensure her safety.
As they lose sight of one another there is a screeching in the sky...
...what is this? Could it be a harbinger? Or maybe even a messenger?
...to be continued on another nice sunny day.

That was too cute! My son just loved it. In particular, he really liked Princess Knight's fine horse!

Momo, I'm sure your son would have a wonderful time here playing with my grandchildren. I'm positive I could convince Princess Knight to let ride her fine steed! To bad we live to far for a play date. But I have an idea, I'll email you about it.
