This past weekend we had a fun escapade to the Santa Fe Renaissance Faire.
So much fun!
We even dressed up for the occasion.
|Doesn't Mr. K look dapper?|
We drove the hour's drive from our house to the Living Spanish Museum on the outskirts of Santa Fe and I was worried we'd be the only ones dressed up.
Well, us and my friend L. We'd arranged to dress up.
But anyway, yes. I worried.
I needn't have. It was a good mix of people in costume and not.
About a third to a half of the attendees, I'd say.
We felt right at home.
So, this is a picture journey of that day!
Found a harpist there. His music was quite enchanting.
And of course, we met up with the lovely and fair, L with her bubby, A.
|Well dressed and ready to go!|
I love the fact that A looked like Robin Hood (or Link, according to L). And that the cape I helped make last year for halloween still fit him!
The place was beautiful and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!
There were even corn fields.
And proud men carrying the wee ones.
G is totally rocking the baby snugglie. And Mr K has Link.
Of course, we had to go to the Fae Wild.
But sadly, we missed the troll and apparently there was a unicorn too.
However, we did get to see lots of fairy houses.
|A castle, a seashore, a book house, and of course a fairy cake house.|
They had Blacksmiths...but they were on break.
And right outside the blacksmith hut was a fairy fiddler.
A was completely mesmerized by her. And all the loose dirt.
Oh to be a two year old again.
There were Celtic games in one area.
|The guy in the back is throwing a caber!|
And of course, the jousting! But we got there right after it.
However the horses were still there.
|There was a Gypsy Vanner and the other two were even bigger!|
They had a costume contest and there was a steampunk traveller who almost won.
Said that the queen should trust Mr. Columbus in his exploring.
There was also a long train of belly dancers that passed through the faire, with their cymbals and bells all a-jingling at one point.
Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to take a photo.
I did however take a short video!
|Her majesty, Queen Isabella made an appearance.|
This is probably the only time I'll eat fried food (corn dogs only, thank you very much). But this one had roasted corn-which was to die for. So we made a small allowance.
|Two fair roses|
But then the day grew long and we had to leave.
But not before one last photo with L!
Ah yes, I love Renaissance Faires. They're a blast.
So, until next time, I bid you adieu.
