Renaissance Festival Field Trip

Hello There..., well fall is definitely here.  I went on my daughters 8th grade field trip yesterday to the Renaissance Festival and we had a great day.  It was school days so it was open to the schools with kids in mind, they closed down all alcohol and weapon booths.  I was asked by countless people in costume that worked there if I was enjoying the atmosphere of school days.  They really cleaned it up for the kids...very family oriented and really nice.  The weather was perfect not hot or cold, and beautiful.  Here are a few pictures of the day...I had forgotten how many beautiful trees surround this place.  On the two hour bus drive we saw countless patches of land and trees that had just recently been caught up in the wild fires of Texas in this area around Plantersville and Magnolia.



We have just arrived and are waiting for our tickets...there were countless buses and kids everywhere when we first arrived and were waiting to get checked in...notice all the green trees the drought has not seemed to affect them that much...it was beautiful...driving in it felt and looked like we were going camping....

Our group is now in the festival area and even with all the people it is so large and spacious, it does not feel crowded and you can really branch out and have some breathing room...

Just looking and waiting for all the group to come back together and then we head out...be prepared to walk and walk and walk and then walk some more....

We are now on the move again to see what we can see...I love all the green trees...


Some of the kids are looking in the shops so we are waiting for them, the buildings are decorated and very ornate and detailed.... 

One of the teachers is going over the map with the kids to see what they want to do next...

and we are walking again....it is kinda like being camping and walking around and  looking at the trees and stuff...a great day to be in the company of friends...and these kids get along great...

There is some sort of pavilion thing to the left of our group...quite a lot to see,  you will not be bored...I'm sure we did not see half of what there is to see today....

More walking and looking....

The kids are doing archery...but I had to get a shot of these lions...Rebecca's school  mascot is the lion and there was a row of lions here when we came....

Oh the places you can go and the people you can see....

Kids were playing with the hats so I snapped a few memories....

We are headed back to the front because its time to head back to the bus for the two hour trip home...it was a great trip and I hope that you can visit the Renaissance Festival and experience it for yourself...I think we are going back as a family before the season is over this year...have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
