It's like a Monty Python movie, but it's real.

The Maryland Renaissance Festival is something I look forward to all year long. Every year the husband and I swear that "We're definitely going to dress up next year."

Last year: Jack screamed bloody murder and was terrified at the thought of riding a pony. This year: Cowboy.

Last year: Henry swimming in utero like a little sea monkey. This year: 6 months old, and sleepy.

Jack learned about the bees. This is him showing us the queen.

Would you like a little Cirque de Soleil with your jousting, glass blowing, Celtic bands, theatre, yummy food, elephant & pony rides, sword swallowing and general merriment? Sure thing!

We brought the double stroller just in case Jack insisted on riding but he walked, almost the whole day. He of course immediately passed out in the car as a result.

Maybe next year we'll take the kids one weekend and another weekend we'll go by ourselves without the kids. How decadent would that be?!

Looks like you all had fun! I highly recommend taking a day without the kids! We got to go on an all day date! What fun! We may try to take Jo one day and do a day alone next year too, however, we have a really hard time getting there at all, so that may be a challenge!

I don't know if we'll make it this year, but I hope so! Looks like all of you had fun!! And yes, we too dream of going kid-free one year!
