Canterbury Tales: a trip to the RenFest

Fall isn’t really fall for me unless I go to the KC RenFest, I’ve been practically every year since I was 10 or 11. This year I went with my sister and brother-in-law and the kids and we had a blast. It was great to live vicariously through Dylan and Peanut for the day.

Drums! Note the facepaint and braided hair.

Dylan wanted to take a picture in the knight stand-up but he liked his sword better than the painted one so he stuck that through the little hole too.

Peanut wanted to be the princess with the unicorn.

Mom and Dad wer the lord and the maiden. Darn harsh shadows and changing sunlight.

Trying on old armor, the heavy helmet gave him a headache.

A gauntlet that probably weighed 1/3 of her total body weight.

Turkey leg!

She "jousted" and therefore was dubbed Lady Peanut.

Mom and Dylan were just tuckered out at the end of the day.
