huzzah and all that

last year's experience at the maryland renaissance festival was good enough to warrant attending again. we split forces early on for ander to acquire a new sword and scabbard; steve followed artemis in her search for crystals and weaponry-coveting. ander remembered the suicide chocolate cake with fondness and requested it again; he was also surprisingly satisfied with the chicken-on-a-lance. i staved off my hunger with a spinach pie (pasty) and canterbury pork pocket. beyond eating and shopping, though, we all enjoyed the jousting and related pageantry and princely ander was well-met by other sword-bearing knights and armed ruffians looking to engage each other in battle.

jousting & tournament games never disappoint
