The Cincinnati Zoo has a few more animals and a lot more people than our zoo. The kids had a lot of fun while they lasted, but were soon pooped out.

Renaissance Festival

Saturday, May 21st, 2005

We went to the Tennessee Renaissance Festival today. It’s way cool if you’re 4, 3 or 3. I think a lot of the peasants with swords wear the same outfits at the movie theater at night, they just swap out the weapon for a lightsaber — instant Jedi knight. Anyway, the kids had fun (especially in the over-priced jumpy thing) and the weather was nice.

Lauren had her last game of the season today. Unfortunately, it rained part-way through the game, so they couldn’t finish it. I’m sure she would have won. Here are a few pictures.
