Show & Tell # 13

Show and Tell

Posting my show and tell early, as we are going away for the weekend...

Last weekend we went to a medieval faire. We go every year, and this year was wonderful weather wise. Some of our traditional things to do:

Go see a medieval show:



Usually, these are funny, bawdy shows (family style—the innuendo count is high—but the kids don’t get it). One of our favorites—a show where they compete to eat mud. (Yes, they eat and drink MUD).


We also do the pony/horse ride. This is Michael's first year on a HORSE. He is so handsome.




One of my FAVORITE parts was shared by all...THE CAKE!!!





Fun was had by all! (Obligatory baby photo ahead)

That cake looks soooooooo good. I would love to go to a fair like that. I know they have one in Maryland each year, but we've never made it down.

I sooo could use a chunk of that cake right now!

My family goes to the Rennaisance Festival here and I love going! The guy that got them started here lives in a real castle that he's been working on since I was a little girl and the crew that he gets to set stuff up goes all out!

What a fun day!

WE have a Rennaisance Festival here every year, and I've NEVER been, though I always say I'm going. Maybe this year...looks like fun!

I went to a fair like that a loooong time ago. It was so cool, but I have to say my favorite treat was a giant pickle from a cooled barrell they toted around the grounds.

Hmmm..does that make me wierd? Any pickles at your event?

Cassandra said...

Is the cake supposed to be somehow medieval, or is it anachronistic cake? :)

I've always wanted to go to a midievil fair...but I thought all they served were those gigantic turkey legs! If there's cake like that, I'm so there!!

WiseGuy said...

The cake looks really yum! And you do seem to have had a great time...Best Wishes!

he does look great on a horse!

I like that you call it a Medieval Faire, not a Renaissance Fair/Festival like we get in my area - the misnaming encourages historical ignorance.

Busy doing that Thing called Life...

October is a busy month and we have been pretty much on the go for most of it---I cannot believe Halloween is almost upon us!! I often t...
