Mischief Monday: Renaissance Festival

What better way to kick off my Blogiversary week then to take a trip to the Renaissance Festival. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but mom reassured me that I would have a blast.

This weekend they had "Pet Fest" and let me tell you, I saw a lot of dogs great and small. 

Sunday was the perfect day to go. The sun was shinning, there wasn't a cloud in the sky and with a light breeze what more could a dog or a human ask for.  

There were so many great photo opps throughout the festival, but here are my two favorite ones. The first one I would like to call "My Knight in Shinning Armor."

If I could add a caption it would say, "What are we looking at?" 

My next favorite photo opp was with a pirate. 

What does a pirate dog say? Baaarghk! 

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

I had so much fun at my first Renaissance Festival I can't wait until next year. I saw amazing costumes, heard funny and at time naughty comedians, and spent most of the day drooling over turkey legs. But, my favorite part was ridding the bus back to our car. It took every ounce of me not to stick my head out the window and yell, "Weee Wee Wee Weee!"

On our way home, my dad busted me and took this embarrassing photo of me sleeping in the backseat while I was still standing up. I guess that means I had fun.
