Ren Faire in Words



Now that we’re home and most of the bags are unpacked, let’s talk about the Ren Faire. We had so much fun! It started at 11am so we took our time in the morning and enjoyed cable tv. Well, the kids did. They watched Micky Mouse. We had a good breakfast (provided by the hotel) and packed up the car.

Once we got everyone in their costumes and checked out of the hotel, we spent forever getting across the street. (The hotel we stayed out was across the street from the Ren Faire.) Someone had a poopy diaper, and…and…and… I have no idea why it took us 45 minutes to actually get out.

We walked into the Ren Faire and had a fantastic time. We were there during their Spooktacular weekend so Butterfly, and the boys, got to trick or treat through the stores. That was fun!

The boys were very busy picking up rocks and throwing them. That was HARD to control because they are kind of all over the place all the time. We finally shoved them into the stroller and they screamed because of it. But after hours of trying to keep them in line, screaming was better.

We rode the rides (big swings), which the boys absolutely hated. But Princess Butterfly loved it. We met the Queen of the Faire who LOVED Butterfly’s costume. Juice entered the adult costume contest but didn’t even make the top 5. We looked at the elephant and ate Faire food. Butterfly asked to leave around 4:30 pm and we were ready to go!

The best part about the day was a lady in one of the shops that laughed and laughed and laughed over the fact that The Dread Pirate Roberts and Buttercup got married and had kids!

After we left the Faire, we changed out of our costumes and drove 15 miles to Hershey, PA and Chocolate world! They were also trick or treating there, but we were just there to buy some chocolate and head home. A stop at Sonic for dinner and a nice drive home ended the night.

So happy to be home!

    Sounds like an adventure that you will remember all your life. The kids will certainly look back with fondness at trips to the Ren Faire. You will show them pictures and tell them the stories, which they will love.

    There is nothing better than building these memories (diamonds, they are called in a song I know) and then cherishing them as the heirlooms they are.

    Stay adventurous!
