‘Twas a grand day to jaunt about the realm, rubbing elbows with other lords and ladies this weekend at the Colorado Renaissance Festival.
In years past, I’ve been to the Renaissance Festivals near Minneapolis, MN and Kansas City, MO. They were a BLAST, and so much fun.
I knew that Colorado was rumored to have a great one, too, but we’d never had a chance to go! The summer schedules have never aligned properly, and I’ve wanted to go for so long…and then, we had Claire. The thought of lugging a baby around the Renaissance Festival was not something on the top of my priority list. The thought of chasing a toddler around the Renaissance Festival, even less so.
Well, fast-forward 5.5 years, and she’s finally old enough that we thought we’d give it a try.
It was a HUGE success.
She wanted to wear a princess costume, so we obliged. Gone are the days when Momma dressed like a wench and chased Highwaymen, but after seeing what a success this was, I can see us investing in costumes in the future. No, I’m not kidding.
We had such a fantastic time!
With over 100 images collected now, the one I have is almost full!
Claire is also the proud owner of a “real” wand. She is beside herself with joy, but trying really hard to contain herself so that the Ministry of Magic doesn’t send us any owls regarding the Unauthorized Usage of Magic by Underage Wizards.
Today, by comparison, has been rather boring. Claire has been forced to deal with commoners AND muggles, much to her dismay.
Such is life after the Renaissance Festival.
