Yesterday we loaded up the family van and headed to the Georgia Renaissance Festival. It was a great day, sunny with a light breeze and perfect festival temperatures. Of course, my boys went totally gaga over all the swords, shields, daggers, pirates, jousting and the like. We all enjoyed the shows and the people watching was superb. It isn't just the offical workers at the festival that dress in costume but many visitors and some of the costumes quite spectacular.
