The Memories We Make!

This weekend, my family and I had the pleasure of visiting the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival. Last year was our first year attending and my husband said, as we were leaving, "we need to make this a yearly tradition". We enjoyed it that much!

They have a variety of fun and unique things to see and do. Shows like a fire breather and juggler, jousting, pirate shows, and a tea party/storytime show for the kids. They also have rides, games, and food. LOTS of good food!

The neat thing about the rides was that they were all powered by you! The "pirate ship" ride was operated by tugging and pulling on a rope in the center of the ship! While you tugged/pulled on that rope, it made the ship swing back and forth.

Other rides like, the butterfly merry-go-round that you see pictured below, are operated by a turn dial that a man pushes around.

One of my daughters favorite games was the bow and arrows. She loved it and did pretty good I might add. {so good that my husband went out to walmart the very next day and bought her a little bow and arrow set to "practice" on!}

Photobucket

And, I can't forget to mention the food! My husbands favorite item was the turkey leg! {look at that thing!}
I enjoyed the sausage sandwich with kraut and veggies while the kids munched on chicken fingers and fries.

Photobucket

The memories made that day are ones that are not soon to be forgotten!

Thank you Heavenly Father for wonderful memories made with family! And, thank you, LORD,  for my family! Amen!

I am linking up at Heavenly Homemakers for Gratituesday! What are you grateful for today?


This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. ~ Psalm 118:24
