Huzzah! And Happy Monday!! I hope your week started off on the right foot. Mine was full of running and fun. Let’s wrap up the weekend.
The next day, we headed out to one of my favorite events of the year. The Colorado Renaissance Festival usually coincides closely with my birthday so we have made a bit of a tradition of going every year to celebrate. They began a bit early this year, but that worked out perfectly since we will be out of town next weekend.
There are fun games like knife throwing, jacob’s ladder, and throwing tomatoes at this crazy guy. He screams insults at the people throwing tomatoes to get them pumped up. I’ve never thrown tomatoes, but we always stop by to see some unsuspecting people get burned and hopefully get revenge my hitting him with a tomato.
The first time I visited this festival as a little girl, my parents got me one of these flower headbands and it was my favorite dress up item for….the rest of my life. If I still had it, I would probably still wear it.
The food is excellent and we demolished turkey legs, candied almonds, cannolis, sea salt caramels, chocolate covered strawberries (yes I went a little crazy at the bakery), and brought home some creamed honey.
Jumping back into the work week is always a challenge when the weekend is so full of fun, active things, but my short work week is keeping me going. I’m excited to get out of town this week and take Bodie in his first ever vacation! Have a great week, my friends!
Have you ever been to the renaissance festival or something similar?
Is it hot where you live? The heat is killing me right now and I’m hoping to acclimate soon.
