Back from the Event!

We left around noon on Friday after getting the pugs all settled for the weekend. Its still nerve-wracking for me every time I have to leave them alone but they did great as per usual. The dog walker left her activity report for us to find when we got home on Sunday; she said it was hard for her to leave them each time too! Heh, glad I am not alone!

Hubby and I had a great weekend away! The event was really quiet on Friday night; not many people there at all which made for a dissapointing Halloween unfortunately. We made up for it the next day; there were over 400 people in attendance! Hubby competed in the heavy fighting tournament; aka 'The Chivalric List' and went undefeated to become the Champion! Alot of you may think of the SCA as sort of like going to the 'Medieval Times' restaraunt and in some ways it is. One big difference is the fights in competions are not staged at all; our fighters actually FIGHT and try and win. This time, Hubby won! He got a gorgeous framed scroll that we will be hanging up as soon as we find a good spot for it.

Here is a picture of Hubby and me from this weekend:

Here is a pic of the day I took the boys to their first SCA event; if you look really close you can see that they wrapped their coupler leash around my ankles !
We got home around 1pm yesterday and the pugs were VERY happy to see us. Gave them lots of love and after unpacking and organizing from our trip we basically relaxed and snuggled with them for the rest of the evening. I hope everyone had a great Halloween and a relaxing weekend!
