Scarborough Faire

But, this is from our trip a few weeks moths ago  (I give up on getting the pictures from Aunt Tara, total slacker trying to get ready for grad school and working full time, it’s like she can’t drop everything for me and do what I want).  On the way up, the boys slept, and Princess pouted.  I’m not sure why she was pouting, but she was.
The boys continue to love going on the pirate ship swing, and Princess continues to not want to do it.  But, this year the boys wanted to go with Daddy, not Mommy.  So, I stayed on the ground with Princess.
This year we went with one of our friends from church, and I was quite amused as the boys would veer wildly from “This is so cool,” to “I’m too cool for this.”  Ahhhhh, 5th grade boys, they can’t decide if they’re boys or men.  I guess I could also say, ahhhhh, 40 year old men, they can’t decide if they’re boys or men.  I know I can say that about my almost 30 year old brother.


The kids continued their obsession with all things meat, there’s just something about a picture of my little girl eating a piece of meat bigger than her face that amuses me.

I love this picture of the boys with Aunt Tara.  She looks so pretty and the boys, well Superman looks so surly.  Batman looks quite content to hug her.  He’s my hugger. 

As you can see, the kids were so in period….  Superman was Captain Trooper Rex, Batman was a knight.  Princess was Rapunzel.
And now the pretty dancing dresses slideshow

But, the biggest hit of the day (aside from buying wooden swords) was the petting zoo.  I think we spent an hour in there, easily…..  And we would have spent longer if the other adults weren’t ready to leave after about 15 minutes.  I think they might have at one point.
I’d show the pleased grins of the 5th graders but as soon as the camera appeared they got sullen looks.  I don’t look forward to the teen years.

I leave you with two fun group shots Smile
Ahhhhh, to think of days when it was only in the 80s…….

  1. I love Aunt Tara's dress, she does look very pretty in that picture!

    This looks like a lot of fun to me! I am very glad to not live in Texas, though, mid-80s is hot in my book.

    Princess has a most enviable pout =)

  2. What a fun time! My kids love petting zoos, too. Talking about the 80's…it all depends on the humidity. A 100 in low humidity feels cooler than 80's in high humidity.

  3. You're right the humidity does make a big difference. I remember being in Arizona last summer and it didn't feel as hot because it's a very dry heat.

  4. This looks like such a fun time! What amuses me most though, having one like this myself, is the Captain Rex costume.
