Blog Header - September 16, 2008

It's time for the Maryland Renaissance Festival. This is our family's longest standing tradition. Shortly after we got married, my wife saw the TV ad for the Maryland Renaissance Festival and thought it looked like fun. So she took me to this wonderfully fun event. That was about 20 years ago and we have returned to the Festival almost every year since then. In fact, our son's first year at the Maryland Renaissance Festival was when he was one year old.

In this picture, behind the pretzel seller, you can see my son David walking arm-in-arm with my wife Kim. (By the way, if you click on my wife's name you'll see another photo of Kim and David at the Renaissance Festival in her blog header.) I painted out a few people so they would stand out in the picture as they head toward the jousting court.

If you get a chance to attend the Maryland Renaissance Festival, make sure you set aside a weekend to do so. It's loads of fun.


  1. I had to have passed you there once or twice, Richard.

  2. I was the one dressed like the village idiot. Okay - not really. It would be cool to meet you there some day.

    We're taking two other families with us this year (Lord willing). One of the families is a couple that is newlyweds and have a baby on the way. They've never been to a Ren Fest before and are excited about going. It'll be fun to watch them.
