Weekend Report

>> Monday, September 26, 2005

I'm sure most of you have been waiting all day to hear about the reception Princess Brenna received in her chariot. Let me just say that the compliments far exceeded what I expected.

People came up to us to talk about it; people asked to photograph it- and us with it; we heard people comment about how cool it was as we walked by. And, by far the best compliment, we were approached by members of the Royal Party (who noticed us as the Royal Procession passed) and Brenna was given a gold coin and a ribbon proclaiming her a Citizen of the Realm. How cool is that?

The day started with rain and thunder but soon cleared to become perfect; not too hot, not too cool. A little bit of mud only brings out the zaniness of the performers.

Here Brenna peruses the offerings at this year's faire. We enjoyed waffles stuffed with sausage, soup in a bread bowl, Scotch eggs and apple dumplings.

Jarod & Doug enjoyed the Royal Wine Tasting; an hour of wine and entertainment. Amanda had her handwriting analyzed and her palm read. Brenna played with straw outside the Gypsy camp. I had a Woodchuck Hard Cider and waited.

Brenna & I did stroll about while everyone else was busy. We encountered this friendly unicorn who entertained Brenna with a game of peekaboo.

Here is Brenna with Uncle Jarod at the entrance to the Enchanted Forest. Along this wooded trail are the fairy houses. At the end of the trail is a small waterfall, pond and garden. It's really well done. What do you think of Jarod's tights?

I think we have made a convert out of Jarod. This was the first year he had gone to the Faire in costume. I think he is looking to have a more elaborate outfit for next year.

We rounded out our weekend with a quick stop at IKEA. I love this "egg" chair:

We crossed the street and had lunch at the Mall of America. Bubba Gump Shrimp. Yum...

And, for those of you who care, the MOA has an H&M now... YIPPEE!!!!
