Today we went to King Richard’s Faire. This is an annual pilgrimage to Carvershire that is hosted by the King Richard’s Faire PR maven, Julie. We love going to the event, seeing all of the performers from over the years. The kids have grown up at the Faire. Andrew has been every year that he has been alive. He’s been able to have such an amazing experience each time we visit. Even when he has had meltdowns he has had great experiences.
Eva as had even more amazing experiences because she fully embraces the fun of being at a Renaissance Faire. She dresses up, interacts with the cast and just loves walking around. Last year we had intended to go on Labor day but a huge storm closed the realm, so we readjusted. We ended up taking Eva and Andrew to the Faire on Eva’s 9th Birthday. The cast was so fantastic with her.
this year we arrived just as the doors were opening. The cast was doing their welcome to the crowd and we were in for an interesting show. Our friend Ryan was going to have a big part in the musical show that they put on every year. The show is usually in 2 or 3 acts. This year it was in 2 acts. We all made it to Act 1 but we had to divide and conquer for part 2. Allison and Eva went to the show and Andrew and I wen to see Snorkel, the Trained Pig, who will be there for only 4 weeks, so come within the next three weeks to see this cute show. Andrew loved the show. There was “dangerous stuff and a pig!” You can see Andrew’s Antics in today’s video.
