We took a much needed break from our house this weekend and just had fun. Friday night we went to Wicked. Dave hadn't seen it before but he knows and loves all the songs. It was great fun - he was sort of like a kid at Christmas. :)
On Saturday we went to the Renaissance Festival. We had to go this weekend because it was buy one get one free entrance and that saved us $21. And really that's the only way to go. You can read my official review for work here. (That's my real reason I had to go. I mean come on, we're giving out prizes for a sweepstakes so those of us running the dealio probably need to try out some of the offerings - you know, to make sure they're fun, right? Right! btw, don't worry about leaving comments there. ;) )
Twig the Fairy
Great Balls of Fire show
Dave got to hobnob with the nobility (they liked his shirt!)
And he liked looking at the swords...
(so he can call his wife when he needs her. Hmmm! He thinks we're in the Flintstones or something perhaps?)
The KamiKazi Fireflies had a cool show:
Waiting for jousting to start...
Mostly the food was expensive (no surprise there) - the corn was delish but the gyro was eh.
It was fun day - but quite hot. We were used to all the rain and nice temperatures we've been having and this was the first hot day so it took us a little by surprise. We needed more water and sunscreen. But we always need more sunscreen. As Justin says - we are the pastiest family ever. ;)
And with that we have a serious ton of work to do on the house before the family ice cream party here on Wednesday!
