Scarborough Faire Rocks!

On Sunday, Reese and Mommy headed to Waxahachie for the annual Scarborough Faire Renassance Festival. They do a great job of making you feel like you crossed a time portal and entered another world! Reese thought the jousting and knife throwing was cool. He found a great handcarved wooden sword, and we even got our faces painted together! Let's see...what else...we watched some great acapella singers together, a funny mime, got to touch all sorts of chain mail and suits of armor, rode this horrible (to Mommy) and fun (to Reese) hand-drawn amusement ride called the Crows Nest, played with lots of swords...

The very first thing we saw as we entered the gates was a Camel Ride station. Reese, Sir No Fear, was all about riding the camel! It gave me a feeling for the day though...and just how expensive EVERYTHING would be. $4 each for the camel ride? Yikes!


Ye Old Crusty Wench on a Jazzy...classic...
Reese and Mommy with matching face paint. Reese wanted to be a knight...this was the closest thing Mommy could find. And Reese decided I needed the purple Princess face paint. The face paint gal was actually really talented. My face art took all of 30 seconds to do, and looked really pretty!



Looking high and low for a Knight Hat. No luck though...


The Turtle Show. Avoid this if it comes to a fair near you. Although Reese was entertained, the show lasted 25 minutes, and it was semi-funny comedy with the actual turtle race the last 30 seconds! We could have done more at the Faire if we had skipped this! Oh well...

We went to the fair too. We saw the turtle races and the kids loved them. I agree about it being long winded but at least it looks dry the day you went. We went last Sat, I'll have to post some mud pictures on my blog later. THese are great pictures! You guys look like you had a lot of fun!
