Field Trip Report! Renaissance Festival

Pin It We had such a fabulous time at the Renaissance Festival!

We got there just in time to see some jousting. My little one was almost upset watching it. "It's very cool mama, but is he dead?" I think there was much relief when he got up!

Renaissance Festival MUST. Turkey leg! Woohoo!

They learned how to play the stick game. I'm sure it has a real name, but I don't know what it is.

Very cool matching socks. Or maybe not so much on the matching.

Now please pound the snot out of your sister. REALLY? Look at the total delight in both of their faces! He won one round, she won the other.

LOVE the expression on his face in the big huge swing!

End of the day family portrait. I'm going to try to take Christmas card pics soon, but if I can't get something that I really like, this pic may be coming to a Christmas card near you!

We really did have such a good time! We watched the blacksmith, the glass blower (FASCINATING!) and the candle maker, plus saw the birds of prey expedition and did a few more rides. We met friends there, then caught up with some other friends, and then spent the evening with friends. The weather started out so rainy and awful but it ended up a very cool, pleasant day. Fabulous field trip!
