The Renaissance Festival

We spent the entire day at the Renaissance Fair.  Needless to say, when we left we were all tired.  But we had a great time.  I won't put a caption on all the pictures since most speak for themselves.

I thought it interesting how many people attending the fair were in costume, too.

The Celtic Band, Tartanic.

Aaron and Adrion thought they would try their hand at knife throwing.

Aaron never got his to stick, and Adrion could barely lift his, so his didn't quite make it to the boards at all.


The grandsons are preparing to be knighted by the King and Queen.


Giving the history of the sword. Not just a symbol of liberty and honor, but during the Middle Ages, also a symbol of Christianity when held as the knight above is holding his sword.

He holds the 2010 World Record for the most two-handed whipcracks in a minute (513).  I was so fascinated, I forgot to keep count.
