We went back in time to the Renaissance era (1450-1600) to give Satori a glimpse of what it might have been like. It’s been awhile since I’d been to one of these, and I’ve only been to the Minnesota one. Neither David nor Satori has experienced one. Oliver joined us as well.

Right away we saw fairies, princesses, jesters and more…0908-rmnp-renaissance-065

I could’ve kicked myself for not dressing at least Satori up for this day. I had invested in tons of fairy  outfits for possible children’s photography shoots that we’ve never used. Luckily, the Enchanted Hat store had outfits for sale.

Ah, now Satori looks like a pretty princess. 🙂

We enjoyed the children’s petting zoo and fed the animals.

To tie this field trip more closely with The Clown of God FIAR rowing this week, we watched a juggling show. Mama also juggled some crystal sticks (not shown), I used to be able to do these back in college.
