A Day at the Scarborough Renaissance Faire!

One of our favorite things to do as a Nerdy Family is attend the Scarborough Faire Renaissance Festival. It’s something that I look forward to every year.

Last year, we took River and Eli. I was looking forward to Andrew’s first experience at the Ren Faire!

We dressed him up as a “Star Trek science officer exploring a planet very similar to Earth in the fifteen hundreds.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Andrew really doesn’t stand a chance at being normal…

First things first, we had to get our faces painted. Eli got a snake.

And River got a unicorn.

River convinced Nanna to get her face painted, too.

I just love that Nanna got to spend the day with all her grandkids! (My sister and her boys were visiting from New Mexico, so the whole crew was here!)

This is Benson. He’s such a happy boy.

Eli wasn’t too sure about the stuff on Nanna’s face.

The kids got to ride an elephant…

Then we went to the petting zoo and a cow licked Andrew’s foot!

And we all played with a lamb!

It was such a fun day, and the kids had a blast!

Have you ever been to a Renaissance Festival? What’s your favorite part?

  2. What fun! I love to go to Renaissance Faire’s, but I haven’t been in years. Looks like a great time. Your pictures are adorable.
