Renaissance Festival - 2014

Last weekend we headed out with family to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival in Shakopee just south of the Twin Cities. It was their opening weekend and the weather was perfect.  
             Ezra didn't particularly like all the attention he received from the oddly dressed participants.
Rocketman got his turkey leg which turned out to be pretty disappointing. It was very tough and grisly. 
                                                But the blue smoothie was perfect!
                                            Except for the brain freeze!  Not fun.
                                         Little Ez was pretty proud of his blue tongue.
                                                   We did a little shopping.
                                           There is always a place to rest if you need too.
Ezra entertained us while we waited for the knife throwing show to start. It was a blast and the knife throwers and jugglers were pretty witty on top of it all.
I wondered what he thought about everything he was seeing.  I love that so many visitors dress up too.
                               Judah found some entertainment in his big brother's hair.
                                             He also had fun with Ezra's hair. 
                                                        Noah played a bunch of games.
We passed on this one. It's harder than you think. A lot of people had their rotten tomatoes hit the top of the canopy as they threw. You did better if you threw sidearmed.
                                                Noah even tried climbing a wall.

                   He said he got nervous when we he got near the top and saw how high he was.
                   But he managed to sound the horn. He was so proud of himself and so was I.
We had a great time. There were a lot of shops selling all sorts of things. I love to see all the talented craftspeople. There seemed to be a lot of pottery and I wasn't sure if there was more than usual. It's just a good thing we were with the grandkids or I might have done a lot more damage to my pocketbook.
