Run to Renn

We finally went to a renn faire! The Oregon Renaissance Festival was splendid. I realized that this was the boys first time going so I made them a costume that I think turned out great.
Unfortunately Charles wouldn't wear it at the fest so he has to wear it for Halloween. Because I am cruel like that.  Here's Devon approaching the Queen.

Her Majesty:

Lizzy was knighted and presented to the Queen. the Queen said that she liked her dress and that they matched. Lizzy was so excited.

There was some fighting.


And making merry.

Fighting a knight.

The kids painted the Painted Lady.

And popped gigantic bubbles.

Along with some impressive aerial acrobatics from the High Flying Fools  that Charles and I got to participate in. What happened is Pester was on the ring holding Lucretia by his feet and I put Charles on her stomach and Pester lifted them both up. We had a great time, but had to leave before the joust. I can't wait to go back next year!

Where has the Summer Gone?

Here we are in October and I haven't posted a thing in months. Agggh! This will be remedied! So on with the show...

Grandma came to visit along with Theya so we took them to the Fort. Here they are playing a ring toss game. Looking Fabulous Mom!

I can't get him to do this at home. Maybe I should have Daniel build one Hmm..

And had a mini cone:

We got prehistoric at Omsi.

digging up bones.

And got some new chicks.
The kids tried out Karate:

Our apple tree cracked:

Got a little wet.

Played with the cousins.

Gearing up for the forth of July parade.

And just had a blast.

Now What?

School is over! Yay, we even had some sunshine so I put the sprinkler on and let the kids play. Little did I know how disastrous this would ...
