Ren Fest 2014

on October 23, 2014

*just a quick little post with lots of pictures!*

We made our annual trip up to Concord, NC for the Renaissance Festival, this past weekend. It’s the third year in a row, so it’s definitely becoming an annual thing. The past couple years, we went the weekend that it opened, but have since decided that it’s still a bit too hot & summer like that first weekend in October. So, we chose to wait til a bit later into the month to go and we were very pleased with the weather and will more than likely make this the traditional time to go…it was still warm while the sun was overhead, cool and comfortable in the shade.

We also took Stephen’s friend Nick with us, so he could experience all the “craziness” that we talk about after one of those trips ;).

*Luke wore his kilt & added a sash while we were there. Jordan participated in a stage show, climbed a tower, & had her picture taken with the super popular fairy, Twig. Stephen added a hat to his Steampunk outfit and Nick got himself Steampunk themed goggles. We watched Gypsy Geoff-Fire Circus show (the one Jordan helped in), the Barely Balanced show and the joust. Drank a lot (beer for the grown-ups, sodas for the kids), ate a lot, and walked a ton!*

We all had a great time and can’t wait til next year!
