Renaissance Festival – Michigan

We are so far behind on posting, but have been busy living life. Took the kids to the Renaissance Festival three weekends ago, then it rained, REALLY rained, and the mud was ankle deep, so we left, but not before we had a few hours of fun, and I touched some poison Ivy and still working on healing that up. David can touch the stuff with this bare hands, I have the wind blow when I am next to it, and I covered.

So David, Garion and Sabrina dressed up, but not Katrina or me. Garion met his mother at the fair, so we have no pictures of him, but he had a wonderful time.

With and without a flash, moving the frame around,not sure which Game of Thrones chair picture we like the most.

It was getting cold out and Katrina used a blanket until it started to POUR Down soon after this picture.

Cool picture of a guy costume we loved!

A band we love listening to – they moved in close off the stage, as it was raining out and the equipment was mostly covered.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)

  1. We took our kids to the Renaissance Fares when they were young. They loved going and still do even now in their 30’s. My daughter just had a Renaissance wedding in August. I was so beautiful.

    I like the the brighter version of the GoT throne pictures. Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

      1. Glad you are almost healed up! We have poison oak on the West Coast and it it absolutely awful! We say that my mom gets it just by looking at it. I think your theory of standing near it in the wind is more likely. Anyways, I feel your pain girl! I hope you’re 100% better super fast!

  2. Hi friends. Glad your time was good. Photo viewing issue here. I can view them if I click on where the photos should be, but not all show on the page in unison. It has happened on my posts more than once, I haven’t figured out why.
