Renaissance Festival

Every year we attend the Renaissance Festival here in town. At least once. Sometimes several times. We all love to dress up, and I have made costumes for all of us. This year we went on Presidents Day. Unfortunately, not only did we not get a family picture this year, but when we all separated to do different things, I had the camera so we only got pictures of the girls.

This is Elsa's last year to ride the free toddler Butterfly ride. She just brushed the bottom of the sign, and wanted me to explain to the attendant that it was because of her tall boots.

Lucy bought a gorgeous parasol to match her outfit. A parasol is really a must as the sun can be very bright and the costumes don't really lend themselves to a practical hat.

Jill brought her Jared along, and she and I made him a shirt that matches her dress and cloak. Aren't they so cute?!

But for me this year, the main attraction was these lovely and talented ladies. I could hardly believe it when I found out they were coming to our festival! I love their music, and they turned out to be great performers and also very gracious about signing stuff and meeting people.

I was just there yesterday with the 6th grade and thought of you tons. I want to go back with just David and hit as many shows as possible. I haven't told him yet. Maybe I should invite him =)
