A Fair'ing We Did Go

Yesterday was Opening Day for the 11th Annual Connecticut Renaissance Faire held on the Lions' Fairgrounds in Hebron, Connecticut and having never been to a Renaissance Faire but always wanting to, I thought it was the perfect time to go and check things out.

Costumes aren't required but it's more fun if you have them so Amanda transformed herself into a gypsy and I was ... well, I don't know what I was!

No Renaissance Faire would be worth its salt without the obligatory turkey legs and that's what Amanda had for lunch. And yes, that's the "I asked you to hold it for me, not eat part of it" look that she's giving the camera!

We had a great time and I took lots of pictures and even though I'm not all that thrilled with how most of them came out I'll share some of them with you as soon as I can get a post together. I was too worn out to do one last night and it's off to work today for Chick Flick Sunday and all the 911 calls a girl could want! Verily!

  4. So did Amanda develop a thing for any of the lords or knights? Renaissance Faires are so much fun.

  7. It's fun to dress up! We're going to stay with friends next weekend to celebrate a 50th birthday with a 70's fancy dress party. Hopefully I'll get lots of pics and post about it.
