Ye Olde Renaissance Festival

This morning Jillian tried on her new duds. "Fake" Aunt Jen sent her an adorable Dallas Cowboys onesie from Texas, since Walmarts here in Maryland don't carry Cowboys goodies. I just picked up a sweet hat with pom-poms on at our Walmart. Think this will make for a confused child? We'll just add it to her list of things to discuss with a therapist later in life....

Today the weather was so nice we decided to head out to the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Jillian had a ball playing on the big pirate ship with it's curved slide. Her fearlessness never ceases to amaze me.

She spent some time playing on the smaller play structure, too. She especially loved going down the slides.

Pony rides all around!

Yummy food and beverages abounded.

Jillian got a wreath of flowers for her hair and a "starter" sword.

And Josh tried his hand at the crossbow game.

A good time was had by all and we (John & I) were exhausted by the end of the day! Jillian, who usually takes a big nap mid-day, only slept for about 20-30 minutes on the way down this morning. I couldn't believe she didn't fall asleep on the way home! Hopefully that bodes well for a solid night of sleep for her!!!
