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.
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!
Devon has been attending a dance class for a few months now, He really enjoys learning the steps and moving. Just ask him to get into first...
