My calender is all askew, though, because of the long Memorial Day weekend and then an extra long weekend visit from my brother-in-law T.J. It's also possible that I ate way too many bananas and am just now waking up from a food coma. Anyways, as promised, I would like to share with you some of our adventures.
It all started with a Groupon offering two-for-one admission to a Renaissance Festival in Marshall. Since it was a good deal, and neither one of us had experienced one of these magical fairs before, we decided to give it a shot. In my head, I was probably picturing the movie A Knight's Tale. You know, Heath Ledger-types running around sweeping
sleep-deprived mamas fair maidens off their feet while an awesome 80s soundtrack played in the background.
I also had dreams of giant turkey legs and mugs of ale, but let's just say that it wasn't quite what I had envisioned. First of all, there were no wenches serving beer - only one little food booth dishing out hot dogs and lemonades. And even though I knew Heath Ledger wouldn't actually be in attendance, I was a little disappointed in the lack of knights in shining armor. Well, except for one...
|Anna was really digging the belly dancer.|
|So was this kid.|
|Would have been a great shot, except for the lady holding her cigarette and coffee. Way to stay in character, right?|
|The King and Queen of the festival!|
