It is this time during the year that I can immerse myself, literally, in the time period I love, and mingle with others who are just as obsessed with history, royals, mead, turkey legs, jousting, etc... While I don't dress up (yet), I do dress up my little pretties.
This year, we wanted to get our entire family involved, and we did pretty well! Since one of our daughters has a September birthday, we invited the whole family to join us in celebrating her birth at the Renaissance Festival. We had 7 of our family members take us up on it! It was a blast, and I can say it was probably one of the most fun times I've had at the festival because I was able to share my love of history and festival activities with more people.
For my post today, I thought I'd share with you some of the pics I took. Have you been to a Renn Fest lately?
|Me and the DH being silly (yes he is the Queen and I am the King)|
|My and my girls after the three of them were presented to Henry VIII's court.|
|The oldest princess on a pony|
|My husband and oldest princess in the front, and his brother and my youngest princess in the back--riding and elephant (My husband is VERY tall--his brother is about 6 ft., we made fun of how my B-I-L looked so small next to him.)|
|My sister, her sig and my 2nd princess on an elephant.|
|The DH in the stocks :)|
|Baby Birthday Princess was WIPED out. She slept for about an hour as the rest of us continued our festival fun.|
|Couldn't get this pic to turn... but that is a giant sundae :)|
