Scarborough Renaissance Festival

Every year we go to the Utah Ren Fest for Mother's Day.
It's just what we do.
Or did.

While I was busy being a heaping pile of depression, Denny found a festival here in Texas.

We went this past weekend to celebrate my birthday.
It is freaking HUGE!
If you have not gone, you are missing out.

 The cousins and Emilyn (adopted family) even joined us.
Enjoy a handful of pictures, taken with my new camera.

Mya did not want to share her stroller.

Emilyn (the adopted family).
This is the girl who is plastered all over my facebook with pictures of my kids.
We love her.

The girls filled necklaces with fairy dust.

They even rode a pirate ship.

Emilyn helped carry my camera whenever Finn was sick of the stroller.

I took the girls into the petting zoo.

Mya caught a baby chicken and snuggled the crap out of it.
It fell asleep in her lap.
Just more proof that I NEED chickens.

The adults grabbed some snacks before heading home.
Finn enjoyed some as well.

It was oodles of fun.
We were there ALL day and didn't even see all of it.
I can't wait to go back next year. :)

Also, thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!
I had a lovely weekend!
