Highland Weekend

Today we took a drive to the Michigan Renaissance Festival in Holly, Michigan. We got a special discount for this weekend with our zoo membership, so we thought this would be the perfect time to go have some fun before we get too busy with moving into the house. The weather was just perfect today - nice and sunny for the first time in over a week.

For the occasion I made Liam a little kilt and also a matching pocket sling to carry him in. Unfortunately, in our rush to leave this morning I forgot my camera, so here are a few pictures that I took of Liam after we got home from our adventure.

We all had so much fun looking at all the vendors, watching shows, and people-watching too. We were there for four hours! Liam stayed awake the entire time, but fell asleep on our walk back to the car as we left. Surprisingly, he didn't want to walk on his own. I think the crowds were a bit much for him and he preferred to be carried by mommy or daddy in the sling. Liam got much adoration from the vendors and crowd...he did look pretty darn cute in his kilt!

I didn't get Sean's kilt sewn in time for this festival, but hopefully it will be done for next year. We also got him a heavy leather belt, a rabbit pelt to make him a satchel, and a ceramic flute. Mommy got a specially made bronze coin. Liam got a super soft teddy bear made from angora (see photos above). He loved it so much that he wouldn't put it down!
