Renaissance Fesitval

 My Mom received several free passes for the Ren Fest and was so nice of her to pass 4 of them to us. We invited Uncle Joe and Aunt Stacy to go with us and hang out for the day. I had never been to this festival before so I wasn't sure what to exactly expect. After a very long drive we finally arrived and I was so surprised.... I had in my head that it was going to be one large tent with a bunch of odd people, but it was really a mini theme park with neat standing buildings and many theater stages. There were still very odd people and odd characters but it was so intriguing and the fact that it was free for us to get in was huge plus. I don't think you will find us there every year, but its something that was great to experience! We really did have a great time with our family!
 Jack was a trooper, we arrived right during his nap time, 
so he was really such a good little boy the entire day!

 Odd characters but the food was good! Jack ate the entire corn on his own!

 Hands down the BEST kettle corn we had ever tasted! We had none left to take home, we had the entire bag, so delish!
 Probably my favorite picture of the day... Mom what is on your head!?


 On our way to watch the joust

 I couldn't believe how many people attend this festival!

 Then it was over to watch the magic show, which was one of the best performances I had seen in a while, really!! This guy was from Paris, France and he was so funny! I even got pulled out of the crowd...eeek!

 I was so pleasantly surprised at our time today. The crowd was a little rough around the edges so to speak, but it was fun people watching and always a great time with Joe and Stacy!
