RenFest 2012

On Saturday, we went to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival with some friends. As always, we had a great time.

We ate lunch when we got there and then we watched The Danger Committee. The oldest son of my close friend Penny was invited dragged on stage. He was a great sport. 

They even gave him a little money when he left, it was their plug for the donation hat after the show "You were entertaining when you were on the stage and so you deserved to be paid, It Is Only the Right Thing to Do!" Clever plan and advertising. We always enjoy The Danger Committee.

Then, most of the kids rode elephants. Here K and Jarod ride together. 

C steals a ring from the dragon on the jousting ride. 

Both the girls wanted to ride the giant rocking horse again. Last year, it was in an area where there was a fire so they weren't able to ride it. 

 We explored the secret forest by the invitation of King Oberon. 

The girls in stocks. Some days, I wish...oh, did I write that out loud?!! ;)


  1. Looks like a fun day was had by all!

  2. What good family fun Melissa. We used to go to a similar festival in Atlanta when CC was home. Joe wore a kilt on kilt day. It was a hoot. xo, olive

  3. I was hoping you would post photos from this year's festival! It looks like such a grand event.I think kids enjoy having their photos taken in the stocks, I have a photo when I was 5 in stocks at Disney. It is one of my favorite photos.
    Their braids are beautiful!
