The Very Busy Weekend

We had a very fun, and very busy weekend! On Saturday I had my much-anticipated table at our local "Festival of Leaves" with my neighbor and it was a busy day! It was a lot of work for the amount of sales I ended up making, but I used my funds to take my family to the Maryland Renaissance Faire.

It has been about 4 years since my last trip to the Rennaisance Faire, so it was really exciting going back, and taking our little "princessies" (as Anastasia fondly calls princesses). Unfortunately it was very crowded when we arrived around 2pm, but calmed down after we took a little break, got the stroller and enjoyed some Italian Ices (my personal favorite faire food!).
Nothing could compare to the wonder on Anastasia's face when she got to ride a pony and talk to a "real" princessie. She was also so thrilled when a tribe of leaf people walked by and handed her an acorn. That acorn is now a sacred treasure.

It was really nice making the day pretty special for our little girl with her big imagination! I was also thrilled to score some new pottery at a little shop with inexpensive pottery! I wish I had bought more!! Nick was happy with his hard cider and an italian sausage sandwich.
And yesterday was a recovery day. A few friends of mine hosted a shower for me and another mom who is also having her third child. It was nice to recieve 2 of the things I had yet to make, burp cloths and receiving blankets. So now I just need to buy some diapers and make some wool pants and covers and I will be all set for the little guy!

The last time we went was with you guys! It's hard to believe that Ben was only like 9/10 months old at the time and now he's turning 5! Looks like you guys had a great time. Makes me want to take the boys to see the knights!

Awesome! I can't believe you got pictures of the "meeting the Princessee" moment! Priceless! That is so great. I am really glad Anastasia and the crew had such a good time. I know I did.
