~Renaissance Festival~

Pictures of the Renaissance Festival...we had a blast. Lots of wonderful sites, lots of walking, a beautiful day and Miss Syndey had to have one of the dresses and hair pieces and then later picked out some wings as well...
I ADORE this picture! Yes, I worked some of my magic with my editing program and blurred the background, otherwise the photo remains "untouched". I could not have all of those other poeple in the background of this picture. Now it looks "magical'. I will have this picture enlarged and it will go in Sydnye's "fairy themed" bedroom.
Courtney in a really neat mask. Poor little miss Courtney could not smile. Her face got really sunburned when they went camping on Friday/Saturday. It was very painful for her. And yes, she used sunscreen. The sun and the water just got the best of her.
My Mr. Jorday, Arrrrr! LOL Could not resist a picture with a pirate! He loves skeletons and such. He has a bit of a knife collection, but would love someday to have a sword collection. I told him to save his pennies.
And this gal was so pretty. The girls both got a picture with her, but I thought she was prettiest in this picture. She was waving her wings and twirling them around....the sun was hitting them perfectly...just beautiful.
The girls had an elephant ride. Very short and Joran & I couldn't help but talk about the elephants and wondered how they liked walking around in a circle all day long. You always wonder what an animal is thinking...
This gal was one of the King's servants. I asked if I could take a picture of her. I did, and then she asked if my girls would like a picture and if they have gotten a GOLD coin. I replied, no. She went into her little bag and gave each of the girl's a gold coin. Very neat. They proceeded to talk with the girls and kept calling them a Princess and they were the chosen ones and are very special. I know when the King talked to them and said the same thing, they thought that was so neat! That memory will last a lifetime for them.
And I could not resist a picture of some sheep. I love sheep and the way they talk. We watched a show that had some sheep dogs rounding up sheep. A very nice day we had and we all slept like rocks. I hope you enjoyed a little glimps into our day at the Renaissance. Peaceful Blessings and enjoy your Labor Day. ~Tonya

Hey Tonya,
The picture of Syd with my favorite fairy is such a nice keepsake! So magical! She is the same fairy I took a picture of 3 years ago. She makes a good fairy too maybe she is a real one. I bet the kids had fun!! They all look like they did. I bet they want to go again. I don't know if we will get there this year but we will see. Now you have to come to the store and scrapbook these pictures! Such sweet memories. Hugs Tam

Love the pics of the sheep, they are one of my favorite farm animals!
Poor elephants, I always feel sorry for them, sentenced to such a life.

Courtney,
I can see your most beautiful eyes peeking through that mask my dear.
You looked like you were having fun despite the sunburn. Poor thing. remember you have to re-apply that stuff after being in the water..
Hugs,Pea
