Hear ye, hear ye! The Renaissance Fair...

Colorado has a wonderful Renaissance Fair in Larkspur, about a 30 minute drive North from the Springs.
July 19, we were invited to the Renaissance Fair for our friends Josh and Bree's wedding. I was really excited because I have never been to a Renaissance Fair, and now I get to go and get the full experience with a wedding too.
I decided to try my hand at making out costumes, Chris said he didn't want me to make his because he didn't want it to look cheap, so I agreed in letting him buy his shirt. I made Austin a shirt that looked exactly like Chris' (by the way it looked just as good, maybe he will let me sew for him now...) Aaron wore a D&D onsie that was given to use, and I made my corset, shirt and dress. (My corset was fine for the day, but I now have my heart set on one of these for next time).
We had a fun day, first we had the wedding ceremony, where Josh the groom flipped a coin before saying I do (great laugh), then we headed to the party area where there was delicious food and cold drinks (definitely needed in the heat). After that we were free to roam the area, and then the Bride and Groom rode and elephant through the fair, it was neat to see. We watched a jousting tournament, and had fun looking at all the neat shops and fun(and some interesting) costumes. Enjoy a little glimpse of what we had fun seeing.

Eat Mor Chikin!

Friday, July 11, Chick-fil-a had free meals for any one who dressed as a cow from head to toe, or a free entree for those who had on something cowish. We decided to go all out. Austin and I created our costumes to go to the restraunt. Austin had fun coloring the cow spots I made on his old white shirt. I made some short for him out of cheap muslim (the waist to crouch was a little small, but he still love it. For Aaron I took a white onesie and colored black spots on it. For me I basted black spots on a white shirt. I made tails for all of us, and Austin and I wore headbands with ears. We had a ton of fun, our total meal costed $.32 cents, because I like the lettuce and tomato on my sandwich. We are definately going to make this a tradition.

Here is Austin posing as a cow
Here is the back of his shirt and you can also see his shorts, and the tail (My favorite part)
Aaron loved his tail also, the front of his outfit said Cowz Rool, and the back said Chikinz Drule
Here are both of the boys enjoying there free food
