Anyhow, the Faire was about an hour south of us, so we headed out of here at 11, got there around noon and stayed till it closed around 7. Thankfully, F&B stayed awake in the car, so when we got home around 8, they went right to bed.
Let's see, we ate a ton, they shot arrows, rode llamas, saw a couple of jousts, saw a dual, saw turtle races, ate some more, went on a couple of rides, played a couple of game, ate some more, saw a few fairies, met some interesting knights who gave them jeweled dragon tears to wish on and got some new dress up costumes.
I've never been before and Shaun hasn't been in years (he thinks it was probably high school last he went), so we all had a good time.

The kids meet some cool knights--these guys weren't part of the fair, they were just dressed up, but they gave the kids little gems that were "dragon tears" to wish on and took pictures with them. They told Shaun & I that they like to see the imagination with the kids which is why they come in costume.

Showing off their new hats--Faith got a pretty crown and Ben got a dragon hat. They also each got a cape and a white unicorn & brown horse hat that are similar to Ben's dragon one.
Dragon Ben, isn't he the cutest dragon ever???
