We went to the Connecticut Renaissance Faire (the extra e is absolutely necessary) last weekend. It was ANOTHER Sunday that E was able to join us (Two in a row! I’m getting spoiled!) and it was probably the most fun day we’ve had in a really, really long time. We are just dorky enough to think people in costume talking to us in fake Olde English accents is fantastic, and the kids were basically in heaven with tons of people talking to them and calling them Princess Caroline and Brave Sir Evan. We’d only been there 20 minutes and Caroline was already a Butterfly Princess Warrior, Evan had a sword and shield, and E had a giant turkey leg. I blew through every dollar in my wallet during our 3 hours there and I regret nothing.
Caroline is a face paint champ already.
What does the fox say?
This girl’s costume was amazing (and she must have been MELTING inside those fur pants).
The dragon gave her beads and said “Never do anything for beads!”
This acrobat was unreal. How is that even possible????
Both kids loved that turkey leg.
Evan could barely fight he was laughing so hard.
This guy put one of the fancy hats on Evan and I said “Sorry honey, I don’t have enough money.” Evan grabbed the kid-sized hat and said “This one isn’t too ‘spensive!” He was right.
That’s Caroline’s angry pirate face.
Of course Caroline got a tiny sword too.
King Henry VIII. Not sure which wife that is. Katherine? The first one?
I have no idea why there was a guy selling these super cool puppets, but he let the kids play with them and they LOVED it.
Watching the Trash to Treasure show
Authentic Olde Tymee Root Beer Floats
My kids are such participators. They both RAN up on stage to be bears in the Betty White and the Three Bears and the Beanstalk (or whatever this crazy show was called).
I’m hoping we can go back again before they leave in mid-October. We didn’t even get to see the rat circus or the jousting!
