A little piece of art, to start the show off right.
Fair Rapunzel, let down your golden hair...
Last Sunday we spent the afternoon going back in time. We entered a gate that took us through a time warp, and let me tell you, we enjoyed every minute of it.
If you have never been to the Georgia Renaissance Festival, and you live within driving distance, well, I suggest you give it a try.
They have live entertainment going on constantly. Yes, there are "shows" on a regular basis, but there are also just people walking around in the "streets" in full costume, in full mannerism, all day long. As we left, we saw the King and he threw my children some jewels. They cheerfully gathered them up, and stashed them in the pirate treasure bags that my Mom had acquired for them earlier. Somehow, that was a perfect ending to the day. Canaan has carried one of his "jewels" (one of those things that looks like a marble, but is flat) around for days now. Perhaps that bit of free nothingness will be his strongest memory of the day?
We saw a pirate show...
and were fascinated with pirates for a good part of the day.
Uncle Kevin (more pictures at this link) and Noni bought several pirate swords and guns, so we got to play outside the sword shop for awhile.
Zion and his dragon.
Canaan got one too, and then Uncle Kevin won a bigger one for the boys in a drawing, but I somehow don't have a picture of that one.
Canaan got a full archery set.
Zion got a sword and shield.
and practiced his battle skills on his Noni.
My knight, my pirate, and myself as a fair princess! Plus, look at that turtle! Isn't it beautiful?!
And here is the final shot of the day... Emilee and I have our "jangle skirts" on, and the boys look like the are ready to fall asleep on their feet.
A fun time was had by all!
