But before I get to that, I thought I would back track a little bit and post a few pictures from the Renaissance Festival we attended a few weeks back. Apparently, they hold this renaissance festival yearly. They even have a village built that's just there year round. I don't really know what happens with it when it's not being used for Renaissance purposes...
The day started off a little bit rainy. We weren't sure how it was going to be, but the longer we stayed, the clearer it got.
We spent a few dollars on an axe throwing "competition."
Holland actually excels at axe throwing. It's a relief for me, since I am sure someday, it will be a very useful skill. He can fight off zombies and maybe axe some poor deer for our meal one day. Times will be tough, but Holland will provide.
To compensate him for his superior skills, Holland received a banana necklace and a wood pendant with a heart painted on it. We ate the banana but the heart pendant still remains.
We also tried out some knife throwing. Holland was not as good at that, but I wasn't bad. I am convinced that if it came down to it (and if I practiced a little more), I could be an excellent knife thrower. We will be a fearsome duo.
One of our last acts of the day was to watch some jousting. One of the horses was pretty slow and lame BUT on one of the jousts, one of the guys was knocked off his horse. I did fear for his safety, but he survived and we all cheered, "Huzzah!"
