Positively Medieval!

If you haven’t been to the Renaissance Festival in Bristol, WI, you really should consider it. Not only is it huge with lots of entertainment and shopping opportunities, they have jousting! Real jousting! Here, look:

We also saw Tartanic. Adrian borrowed Eric’s hat for one of the songs. Don’t ask me why. Apparently that particular song needed a borrowed hat and sunglasses.

We did some shopping while we were there. You can’t go to a Ren Fairre and not shop! Well, maybe you can. I can’t! I found a horn cup and a stout walking stick for barding.

My only complaint? I wish it was closer to St. Louis!

What did you do over the holiday weekend?
