Renaissance Faire

We enjoy going to the Ren Faire every year.  It's neat to see the things that people remember from weapons, woodworking, blacksmithing, etc... Sam didn't look too happy here, but honestly he had an absolute blast.  He even brought this satchel that Jer bought and that Sam sewed. 

Seth was soooo excited to see goats!

Everyone loved the ponies.  They named all their ponies, then asked the guy what they were really named.  Seth was nervous about seeing the ponies, but he loved sitting on it.


Evelyn decided that she wants to be a blacksmith too.  She got these tiny swords and really wanted this tiny hammer... The swords were $1, but the hammer was $15 so we passed.


Evelyn and her faces.

I took this picture and Evelyn said, "Now you have a picture of root beer!"

This guy reminds me of my brother, McKay. 

The girls were saying that they aren't Robin Hood, they're Robin Girls.

Fire eater

This guy was pretty neat.  We left and Evelyn decided that she wanted to be a fire eater someday. She kept puffing up her cheeks and pretending to blow fire.

Ada said that this is the best picture I've ever taken.  Love that girl.


These were all birds that we got to see at the Renaissance Faire last Friday.

Soccer again

Three kids in soccer makes for a crazy schedule, but for happy kids.  Evelyn was pleased as punch to get to play on her own team this season.  She would run down the field, get in the pack, kick the ball and then back out so that someone else could kick it.  We think she might have gotten a goal, but it was hard to tell with the mosh pit of kids going down the field.

She made a friend and when they tripped, they stood up and shook hands very enthusiastically.

She kept falling on purpose.  It was so funny!

Go Pink Dolphins!

That's my girl!

This kid is sooooo excited to be back.  He made three goals and was so mad at himself whenever the other team made a goal.  We're going to have to talk about that if he keeps that up.

Seth and his nursery friend, Corbin, played together for a little while.  Unfortunately, Seth was a grump and got territorial with the wagon.

Jer is Ada's Assistant coach.  Her game was at the same time as Sam's so I didn't get any pictures this time, but the best part is that she's learning some very real things this season.  It's hard on her to change, but they've moved to a bigger field and playing positions.  Jer said that she's a good goalie and a decent forward.  Ada says that goalie is her favorite.
