We go to Renaissance Festival every year. Both children began going early in life (Jacob was 6 weeks, Bella was about 3 months) and the entire extended family looks forward to it each year.
This year, we got there around noon and the day seemed to fly by. Now with three kids in the group, gone are the days of lounging under a tree listening to music and people watching and wandering in and out of shops. OK, I still shop but it is more strategic than it used to be!
I wish I had a picture handy of my brother – because Jacob looks a lot like him in this picture. Jacob’s Paw Paw always wears these cool hats at Ren Fest and this year he bought Jacob one.
Here was a fabulous costume I hadn’t seen before, we all thought it was a fox but later someone said it was meant to be Puss in Boots. Still I think it was like a fox – whatever it was, it was really neat.
The week before we went Jacob got his haircut. I don’t mean trimmed, I mean major major haircut. So be prepared he looks totally different!
Our kids still love the carousel. Here is Bella with Uncle Bob.
I like this series – Uncle Bob was teaching Jacob how to flip his hat from his hand up onto his head.
Earlier in the day we visited one of our favorite vendor Whimsys Muse, they take gorgeous fairy pictures and then go in digitally and make them really special and fun. We had Bella’s done when she was an infant and I wanted to do them again. They came out so cute!
If you are a grandparent, ...you might want to wait to order anything until you see what Santa brings :)
The children love to ride the camels and elephants. Will rode with Bella on the camel and Bobby took Jacob on the elephant.
My handsome husband.
Aunt Leaf (Leigh) and the girls.
Paw Paw and Grandma got fairy wings for the girls.
It was a really fun day, that went by sooo fast!
