One of the first things we saw upon entering the Faire was a glassblowing demonstration. It was quite fascinating to watch the glassblowing process and learn from the enthusiastic gentlemen speaking. It makes you appreciate the hardwork and detail of hand-blown glass.

You can't check out a Ren Faire or anything medieval without checking out chain mail. This was no exception. And of course the boys had to try it on - which was very cute.
We spent the day with our friends the Stewarts, and were lucky enough to see more of our friends throughout the day. It is always nice to see your friends when you're on a fun field trip.

|Bode - just Naughty|

We had a great time seeing and doing many other things at the Faire, and stayed until the end. And after soaking up the sun and dust all day, we treated ourselves to Slurpees for the drive home. Fun times!
|Bode, Ian, and Cole - Good times!|
