OOMPAS GO TO THE FAIRE


Zachary demonstrates that there is no future for him as a pirate.  He humored me this time, but his next trip to the faire will be as a Squire.


Art, on the other hand, has no visions of grandeur.  He is now and always will be a rogue pirate.  And look, he's got a jar of dirt!


Last year I posted a musical slide show of pictures I had taken at the Faire.  Somehow the video made its way to the Colo. Ren. Fest. online forum where I was introduced to some of the wonderful cast and crew of the Faire, including the lovely and talented Mistress Charlotte, a face painter/ artist extraordinaire!  Rachel, dressed up as a proper Lady, walked away looking and feeling like a princess.


Rebecca, showing off some of Mistress Charlotte's work, was also a lady for the day.  People kept remarking on her beauty.  Oh, if only they knew!


Nope, we couldn't talk Dickidoo into dressing up.  But that didn't keep him from participating at the faire.   Here he is getting the snot knocked out by a co-worker during the public square pillow fight.


But fear not, Dickidoo made a miraculous recovery and saved the land from the evil young tyrant!

Lol I agree Zachery looks too much like a charmer to be a pirate, squire works! Art what can I say he would of fit right in on the rogue side. Both of your daughters are truly beautiful. Loved the pics! Sounds like a truly wonderful time was had by all in your family! (Hugs) Indigo
