Michigan Renaissance Festival

This past weekend we were all ready to head to the Michigan Renaissance Festival. We were about ten minutes from the festival when our vehicle just quit running. We were stuck on the side of the freeway waiting for a tow truck. This was not fun at all.

Thanks to our family it did not take us very long to get out of the situation and we were able to make it to the festival.

Big D on the other hand could not come with us. He had to drive all the way home, pick up his grandpa’s van, and then drive all the way back to the festival to pick me and the kids up. It is a two hour drive there and back. Poor guy, he was pretty tired when all was said and done.

The Renaissance festival has always been a fun time for our family. This time was no different even under the bad circumstances we experienced.

The drum circle at the end is one of
our favorite parts of the festival.

I hope next year goes more smoothly
and Big D can join in the fun.
