Michigan Renaissance Festival8:18 AM
One of my favorite things to do in Summer is to drive up to Holly MI and go to the Michigan Renaissance Festival, or "ren-fest" as we typically call it, and spend the day in the hot sun laughing, eating, drinking, and geeking out with my friends. This year, we made it to the "Highland Games" week. It was awesome watching one giant beef-cake guy haul basically a tree with no limbs across a field and then watch three scrawny guys scramble to get it back to him. There was yelling and cheering all around and we had an amazing time. Of course we aim to go again before the end of the season and we even toyed with the idea of getting a season pass for next year. I am telling you, if you live in Michigan, you should go at least once.
Of course I let Kyle take the camera so the pictures would actually come out decent, so I hope that you like them :) Jamie and I dressed up, we got pretty creative with an old Halloween costume and some florist wire and fake flowers.
The guy with the guitar is actually our friend from Grand Trunk. Their group "Stoneclover" was awesome and they got paid to sing, joke and poke fun at a few patrons :)
