Renaissance Festival and a GIVEAWAY!!!!!!





I hope everyone had a FABULOUS valentine's day....I for one spent the day with my family at the Renaissance Festival at Quiet Waters Park. It was interesting needless to say.... I loved all the dressing up renaissance style... that I thought was awesome...but what was even more interesting was the people who attended the festival as patrons who dressed up! Oh..and did I mention it was HOT out yesterday! The festival had alot of booths that you could shop in




I though this dress was so pretty....





and then some old world style games that you could play including an Archery Range which happened to be the only one we didn't do...the bow was bigger than the kiddo!!! The food was good...lots of fun stuff... Lamb Gyros, Funnel Cake, Apple-Cider Doughnuts...YUM!!!! My favorite thing was a show called Barely Balanced....This was totally cool! It was three acrobats with some comedy thrown in... Very cool stuff... Here are some pics...All I can say is...I WANT HER AB'S!!!!! (Yes...I am screaming in the hopes that the AB fairy will hear me and send me some ;)....)











And yes...one guy is holding her up with his legs and yes the other guy is actually standing on her shins!!!!! And she is holding her whole body up!!!!!! WOW!!!! OH...And they are throwing knives around!!! Uh-Huh...I can do that :)






These people dressed up just for the heck of it.....





Some old world games....





Looks a little like Skee Ball to me.. :)






My little Jester....



And last but not least the Joust...This was pretty cool....











All in all it was a pretty fun day....


Now for suffering through what I think was my longest post EVER....I have a giveaway....I purged and someone is going to be the luckier for it!!! Tons of awesome paper (Fancy Pants, Dream Street, Scenic Route, Tinkering Ink, Anna Griffin and a ton more!) and a few extra goodies... So all you have to do is leave me a post of what you did for Valentine's Day and Jake is gonna pick a lucky winner on Friday!


Have a great week!! XOXO

Hey chica, We went Sunday and had so much fun. Dom did not want to goto the Joust wanted to go back to the bounch house. Weird kid! We went to benihan for valentines. He ate with copsticks, too cool. have to take him again. He was tired and cranky. Then we went over to Barnes and Noble and got him a few beginner books and to Kilwins for ice cream. We had a long weekend. LOL My leggs are still killing me.

Your photos are so interesting. You have spend wonderful day.
Nice blog candy.
We spend Valentine day at home. There were very cold day. We have two children 3 and 6 years old. We don`t want to leave them. That`s way we spend day at home. I made Valentine dinner and my husband and I drank a glass of vine. That was our Valentine day. Nothing very special, unfortunately.

I go to the Ren Faire every year in the Fall for my birthday! My husband thought it was way too nerdy until I took him one year and he loves it now! lol As for Valentine's, we actually stayed home with our baby and enjoy some quiet time. Great blog!

Wow, so many great pictures! It looks like you all had a great time at the festival. Glad to hear you enjoyed your V-day with the family. Tony, the kids and I went to Perkins for Brunch and then out to a movie. Later that night Tony and I had dinner at my favorite restaurant, The Raindancer, with two other couples. It was a great Valentine's Day. I really enjoyed it. Tell Jake the Jester hello for me.

I love your blogs new look. Don't worry I won't ask how you did it. My valentines day wasn't very interesting so I didn't comment. My son had the flu and 103.
