Renaissance Festival 2016

Woo jumping forward and then hopping back and then going back even FURTHER! So I posted October, now it is time to check back at our yearly date to the festival. In 2016 we not only went with Ravyn and Shandai (as has become tradition), but we ALSO brought along Sean and Ted who were down on a visit from Canada. This was Sean’s second time (he and Ken had a short visit the previous year to the festival) and Ted’s first. I think we gave them a good experience… everything from jousting to beer to random sights seen. And Shandai and I snuck away for some girls only time shopping.20160904_150720_hdr

This year we went as simple┬átravelers… no fancy lady corsets for us this year (thank goodness). In fact, this is a costume I may re-do for the next year. Not so “correct” but much more comfortable. Though I will probably add some colour. We shall see.20160904_101028

And Ken showed his knees… thanks to a loaned kilt.1473003625279
