Last weekend we finally made it to the Renaissance Fair. This fair is a HUGE event for my children and they look forward to it for months — planning their costumes, their characters, talking about what they saw last year and hope to see this year. This fair is also a huge event for me as I need to sew them new costumes each year — a project which I love. This year, I was all ready to go the weekend of Memorial Day but rainy weather and a child with the flu postponed it. This gave me an extra week of sewing so I went crazy and made myself a new outfit. 100% wool…..uhm…..what was I thinking?!?
We saw jousting and sword swallowing and much entertainment. I saw lots of amazing and inspiring costumes, and my children saw many amazing and inspiring characters. What a wonderful day we had!
