A Janesville Faire

So, Friday I left with the little pixie to visit the Janesville Renaissance Fair in Wisconsin.  The weather forecast looked bleak, but we kept our chins up anyway.

The wind threatened to carry away my booth on Saturday.  But we still had fun.  At least the sun came out for us on Sunday.

Ellette found many things to do to occupy herself, including making friends with the other little girls there.

Including watching every single show by Suitcase Shakespeare and helping them set-up, clean-up and making sure the cast was properly taken care of inbetween shows.  (Thanks guys – you are awesome for putting up with them so gracefully!!)

There was a juggler.

And belly dancers

Ellette was in charge of the camera for shows so there are not that many good pictures.  But that’s ok, these are cool too.

My friend Kirk attempted to hula hoop

And failed

I ate Elephant Ears

And met all manner of fantastical creatures

I just kept reminding myself that everything is an experience that helps us grow, and the people you meet along the way make it all worth it.

Next weekend I will be at the Dubuque Renaissance Faire.  Come on out!
