Weekend in Review: Saturday

Saturday morning we were up early to load the car, don our garb, and make the two hour drive to Holly. The first thing we did upon arrival was to purchase a bodice for Kacie that was made of embroidered sari fabric then we found a purple feather headband to go with it. Then we were off to Ladyfair's booth to meet up with forum friends and have pictures taken. We spent a couple of hours wandering the shops were Tom finally found a belt that he liked. We went to the Queen's Tea at 4:00 were Tom and I participated in both the musical men game and the wooing contest. (I'm waiting for my ren forum friends to post their photos.) After tea we went to Ample & Trite's show were Tom was pulled on stage to play the part of "Beulah". We capped off the day with the pub sing at the Guiness Pub were many of the musicians from around the shire gathered together to perform for the queen and us "good gentles" then joined in as the queen and her court paraded to the gate for the farewell song. After the full day at faire Tom and Kacie were both sawing logs by 9:30 and I went to bed by 10:00!
