Renaissance Festival

Oh, you guys. This might destroy any shred of credibility I have with anyone, anywhere, but the renaissance festival? I kind of love it. Like, with every fiber of my being. I've wanted to go for a couple of years now, but it seems like something has always come up to prevent me from going.

This year, though? This year, my sister-in-law came through with some free tickets. This year, i was not going to miss the fun.

People dressing up? Awesome. Beer? Yes, please. Whole turkey legs for lunch?

Well, no, that's definitely one part I could do without. I tried a bite of Steve's, and let's just say I remember it tasting much better as a kid.

But crowns and queens and fairies and flowers? I am all over that. In fact, I had to talk myself out of buying a crown to wear around the house while I dust. It just seemed like such an awesome idea.

I can't wait to convince everyone to go back with me next year ;)

PS: I think I'll have more pictures to post later in the week, but they are currently on someone else's camera, and I haven't even seen them yet, so we'll all have to hold our breaths in anticipation together.


  1. Ha, I used to know some people who worked at a renaissance festival and they were so WEIRD! lol B is absolutely adorable in her little flower crown!

  2. How FUN!!! I'm sure you guys had a great time! And now I want a beer.

  3. We have a Renaissance Fair near Houston, but it's gotten so lewd and nasty that we won't go back. It's one thing to have fairies and beautiful queens, and another to have fair goers show up nearly naked, or "serving wenches" yell suggestive things to my husband and sons. No way.


Leave a comment, if you'd like...I'd love to hear from you!
