Renaissance Festival: 2013 Edition
Especially the shenanigans.
We've been to the fest the last couple of years, so I'll spare you the details of the festival itself, and just cut to the pictures, except for this story:
Zeke carries a shark bucket to carry his halloween candy in. Picture a grey bucket with a gaping shark mouth as the opening, and you'll get the general idea. Many folks commented on his bucket - it seemed to be a hit.
As we were walking around through the crowd, the bucket got jostled, and stuck on something. When we looked closer we found that the leg of a passerby got stuck perfectly in the open mouth of the shark. Apparently Zeke's candy is safe and sound, and under the protection of an attack shark (I'll have to remember this before I raid his candy).
Later on in the day as we were walking out of the park one of the performers was walking past us. She turned and looked at Zeke and exclaimed "You're the boy with the shark bucket! I've heard about you!" Apparently Zeke is now Renaissance Festival famous.
We all dressed up for the occaision. My wife, +Debbie DeBaeremaeker went as Little Red Riding Hood, Zeke was a butterfly, and Abigail was a princess.
Apparently vultures are nothing to fear as their beaks are often not sharp enough to break through skin, and their talons are neither sharp, nor strong enough to carry much more than a feather.
