Renaissance Festival 2009

We do enjoy a good Renaissance Festival in this family, and we decided to go last Sunday. As I'm laid up at the moment with a busted ankle (in my usual grace, I fell off the step by my back door while trying to shut the door quickly so the cat wouldn't run out) I think I'll just post some pictures instead of being long-winded. The pictures really speak for themselves, anyway.

Benjamin practices his bow/salute.

The kids catch an Italian rogue traitor.

Sophia gets a ride on a war horse.

Mmm, gigantic turkey leg.

Sophia enjoying the Painted Lady storytelling and, well, painting.

And, of course, the best part was having a great day together as a family, not to mention that we met up with dear, dear friends and enjoyed their company as well. All in all, I couldn't imagine a better way to spend a Sunday.

Happy 4th of July!

Block leave is over and we're trying to make the most of our dwindling time together before Clint leaves, so this is just a quick hello. But I'll be back later! Have a great holiday!
