During Scott’s week off, he researched some fun activities to do near Columbus. He was particularly excited about a festival that weekend about an hour’s drive away.
So, we piled into the car with the girls and got ready for an adventure.
Scott wore a classy leather coat over a green and tan striped sweater:
Mackenzie wore a brown floral hoodie, brown corduroys, and new lace-up shoes (Yes, lace-ups. No wonder they were the cheapest ones at Target! #$%# Only a clueless mom would get them home before noticing 😉 ):
And I wore Caitlyn:
And as for everyone else at the festival? Well, sometimes pictures are better than words:
Yep, we went to the Ohio Renaissance Festival.
The people watching was plentiful, and there were a few cool shops and several shows:
There was even live jousting and we grabbed front row seats early so it was especially exciting.
It was a huge production with thousands of people in attendance, but at $20/person it fell a bit short of expectations.
We spent most of the afternoon wading through endless shops where surly shopkeepers watched Mackenzie’s every move and the kid-centric attractions seemed to cost extra money. With older kids it would have been more fun, I think.
Especially if our children were really into wearing tunics.
