Texas Trip - Day 3 - Renaissance Fair

Before I got to Texas, Missy had asked me if I wanted to go to a Renaissance Fair while I was there.  Of course!  I had never been to one and was pretty excited.  Abby, another of the friends from Thursday, asked if she could tag along with her 18 month old son Ethan.  Even Ethan had a costume!

I decided to try some Mead since I'd never had it (honey beer basically)

I also had some guy majorly flirting with me and he asked for a picture so I had Missy get one too.  My story of the weekend "Robin Hood was hitting on me!!"  Haha, he had an awesome costume and he was nice.  I made sure to try to show the wedding bands a bit.  LoL.

We saw the parade and the jousting.  It was a good time!

Missy and Abby went on the swing while I watched Ethan.  He was so cute and happy to watch people on the swing.  Missy was screaming for fun while she was on the swing.  The queen had been walking by at that time and she stopped to play along, telling the girls "You are not doing it correctly!  It must come from the gut!" and then they went back and forth until she was satisfied and told them "well done ladies!"  LoL.  It was fun!

On another note, Ren Fairs can seriously be addictive!!!  You could spend so much money on this as a hobby.  I'm in trouble!!!  Rob and I already made plans to go to the one in Lancaster, PA in the fall.  October 8th and 9th is Wine Weekend so we're going then in case anyone wants to meet up!  I say this because... I bought a corset!  And I'm going to try to make a dress to make it look more princess-y rather than bar maid-y.  LoL  I love it though!  I also got a cute thingy for my hair.  Also, Missy (who asked me to drive back because she was tired), thought it was a hilarious sight seeing me drive in full period garb.

We ended the night by having dinner at the Cheesecake Factory.  It was a tiring day!  And before race day!  Eek!

Looks like so much fun!! I'm going to chat with my hubby about PA... That's not so far, relatively speaking - a 14-hour drive... well, we'll see.

We have a really big one here in MD every Aug-Oct. I love the way people get so dressed up and into the mood!! I have one "sort-of Ren-looking" dress with a lace-up bodice--but nothing as cute as your outfit!!! :)
You look AWESOME in your corset, skinny girl!! No wonder Mr. Hood was hitting on you!! Hahahaha!!! :)
