The Real Magic

We ate breakfast in the room before we left.  We all wore our hats we had gotten the night before.  Heather got the girls some ears that just clipped into their hair.  I had to get a photo of my girls together.

Heather had everything scheduled because that is what she does and we had to have reservations for everything; including the parks.  We arrived at the Magic Kingdom as the park was opening.  Heather tapped her wristband to get in and we didn’t have reservations for that park.  She had made a mistake and we were supposed to be at Animal Kingdom.  They had openings to get into the park, so we all got in but they canceled our Animal Kingdom and we couldn’t change it to the next day.  Heather got our reservations changed for our dinners, so that was okay.  Heather was so upset and thought she had ruined our whole vacation.  David said she sounded like her Mom.  I guess she is like me in some ways.  Anyway, this is when the real magic came into play.

3 Barons Renaissance Fair

In June of every year we have a Renaissance Fair here in Anchorage. We enjoy going and spending time with the family there. It is a cheap day out with the tickets $8 for adults and $5 for children which can be bought at the gate or online. It is also educational for adults and children.

David and I did hang out with the pirates a lot due to the fact that they were in the beer garden, besides being fun. There is a lot of singing and storytelling which leads to tons of laughter.

You will receive tokens that you use to vote on which of the Barons you prefer Red, Blue or Green. There are many different shows that you can watch from sword fighting to ….

How about learning about knights? This is very interesting.

Then there is always the throwing of tomatoes at the actors which is always fun. Well maybe not for the actors. To think they wait all year for these 2 weeks to get tomatoes thrown at them. It is a good laugh.

All these people work very hard to make these two weekends fun for everyone while learning something.

We also ran into a friend of ours playing her harp for tuppence.

Even our twin granddaughters had fun!

Now on the other hand our niece and great nephew seemed to have gotten into a little trouble.

After some bargaining we managed to get them released.

At the end of the day it is time to watch the parade of the 3 Barons.

After a fun day at the fair we all headed home.

I hope you enjoyed our fair.

Thanks for stopping by!
