(Lets just say the "way to the fair, was not so fare.)
Sunday morning bright an early Patricia and I headed out with friend Dillon to Waxahatchie Texas for the annual Renaissance fair. This was my first time to go and BOY was it eventful. Halfway there we were pulled over by a State Trooper for the vanity plate on his mothers Cadillac Escalade (your not allowed to have them in Texas) but not to worry, we just received a warning.
(Myself, Patricia, & Dillon)After driving and making endless U-turns on the highway thanks in most part to a fickle-but State of the Art G.P.S. we finally had to use the map quest on my phone to get there!
(The front gate)
(Dragon fountain hammered by hand)We took in a jousting match....
(Frozen Orange with Orange flavored Italian ice)
(Whats left of strawberry Italian Ice on a frozen Orange...)While we sat under a tent and ate our oranges we were serenaded by brass bells, I'm told this is the largest traveling brass bell contraption of its kind.
After the concert we wandered the replica 1500's streets a while longer...
Last but not least we saw the Falcon show and I couldn't video it as my camera has shiny silver parts on (and I didn't personally want to end up on the next season of "When animals attack" But I did get a picture of them!
Sorry its so dark, but the sky had turned completely black outside,when Michelle adjusts the sound on the Victrola she does so by opening and closing those two little doors in the center.
While wating out the storming and waiting for a locksmith to come and rescue the keys out of the car, we sat down and watched last years summer musical for Backdoor Theater "The Pirates of Penzance".
That clap of thunder sounds muffled on the video but in real life it sounded like it was literally right beside us!
After being scared out of our minds we went back in the house and road out the rest of the storm, the locksmith finally came and after several tries got the car unlocked and we were back on our way home!
I think its safe to say the drive was more of an adventure than the actual Fair but through all the mess a great time was had by all!
