The Renaissance Festival

Last week, we went to the student day at our local Renaissance Festival. Dad took the day off and we were really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, it was not what we expected. I expected us to learn a lot about what it was like to live during the Renaissance period. I did not run into a lot of learning experiences. I did run into a lot of over priced merchandise...

In prior years, they have had two student days, but this year they condensed it to one day. That was a mistake. It was incredibly crowded - so much so that we could not make it from one show to the next and then when we did make it there was no room left for us to watch - at least where the kiddos could see or hear.

It was, however, a beautiful day and we did see a hilarious sword fight and an exciting full armor joust...we just didn't learn a whole lot! Here are some pictures...

Bummer that it wasn't more educational! The pictures look cool though. :)
