The Renaissance Festival

On October 18th, Nick & I took the kids to the Renaissance Festival in Plantersville, TX.

As soon as we got there, the kids wanted to get their faces painted.

Addy chose a snake

and Alex went with the Hulk.

Then we walked around & did a little shopping

played a few games

and checked out some of the interesting things you come across at the Ren Fest!

And then we found what we were in search of...
Animal Rides!!!

Addy rode a llama

And then Addy & I rode an elephant.

(And of course, these were Addy's two favorite things the whole day!)

Then we went over to the arena & watched the jousting show.

We were on Team France.

Sadly, Team France did not win.

Alex was begging to ride Neptune's Swing, so as soon as the jousting show was over, we did!

And as soon as the ride started, Alex was begging to get off!

After that we watched the awesome Whip Show. The guy used whips to pop balloons, snap a rose off the stem & even fire whipped stuff. It was very impressive. And it ended up being about the only thing that Alex actually enjoyed!

We'd had a long day & it was super hot so after The Whip Show, we decided to head out.

But before leaving, we had to stop for one last memento... a bird whistle!

We had an okay time but it was hot, crowed, expensive & really not our scene. 
And the kids didn't like all the walking!
But now we can say...
We've been there, done that, won't go back.
