"faire" maidens

We are squeezing a lot of "only in America" fun into this summer and the latest was hitting the Bristol Renaissance Faire with Bibi.  It was a girls only last hurrah before we head off to Iowa.  I have not been in years and it is much bigger now (more expensive too yikes!) but the funny accents, jugglers, story telling, turkey legs for eating, crazy costumes, and excuse to dress up (or in WAY too little clothing...scarier than the executioner!) still remains the same.....
Here is our day enjoying two little girls discover the magic of the fair....

we met a former acting student of my mom's debuting his new role as duke or king or something...

a rode a pony to cap off the afternoon of magical adventure and sunburnt faces.

I beseech ye if thou canst to ponder a more fullsome day for two young maidens? methinks there is nary.
A sweaty but splendid day at the fair..
