SHeldon and I went with a friend to the Renaissance Fair today. :) We left at about 9:30 and just got home...at 8:30. We are tired....and a bit sunburnt. However, we got to see a bird show, blacksmith, glass blowser, the jousting, and a bunch of different shows. It was fun!!! I think I drank about 10 gallons of water while I was there. I actually ate pretty healty. LOL All 3 of us had chicken cesaer salads in a bread bowl.
The first show that we went and saw was the Birds of Prey. It was sponsored by an organization called EarthQuest and we saw a Red Tailed Hawk, a black vulture and a Andes Condor.
Then we watching the Flying Debris Juggling Act. Next, Sheldon and I went and saw the Blacksmith create a nail. While he was doing the show a woman came up and told him that his building was on fire. He took it all in stride....it must have happened before. After that we saw the Nickel Shakespeare Girls who do a show about all the women (or men playing women) in Shakespeare. It was pretty bawdy. Then we had an hour to the jousting and our friend Curt wanted to see that. So we were walking around and decided to watch the Washer Girls. It was a much better show than I thought it was going to be....they did use Sheldon for a prop during the show and she told me afterwards that he makes a great couch. My feet can testify to that every night. :)
Then we accidentially came upon the glass blower. Which I was glad we did as it was one of the shows I wanted to see. He made a glass mug. It was so fun watching all the kids faces. I didn't even think to tell Sheldon to take pics of it.
After that, was the joust. I will tell you the truth. I was so exhausted by then...that I just sat around and people watched. It was 5:30 and not in the shade...so I was definitely exhausted.
Finally, here is a picture of Sheldon & I (with my baby bump starting to show.) Have a great day!
