Chippewa Valley Renaissance Faire 2010

Posted by danaandtammy on Sunday Jun 6, 2010 Under Kid Pictures, Photographs

After going to church last night, we headed to the local Renaissance Faire. We didn’t stay too long, but the weather was great and we had a lot of fun.

Tammy started the day with a free archery lesson. She only fired one arrow and she actually hit the pile of hay bails on which the target was attached.

Kenny didn’t eat enough iron for breakfast.

Emma started with the cup of corn for the goats, but she did give Kenny a turn before the corn was all gone.

Kenny did a little feeding.

Even when the corn was all gone he still tried to do some feeding.

Kenny moved on to try to give the goats some water. He was quite confused though, he would dunk the little flower pot into the water and within two steps of leaving the bucket the water in the pot would be all gone.

Kenny is hoping to give some of the imaginary water to this “woof-woof.”

The had a few rides and one was a lot like the swings at a regular fair, but the seats were a little more relaxed and the whole thing was operated by two men turning a big crank to get the thing to go around.

Kenny and mom didn’t get to go for a ride, but they did try out the seats.

Emma still likes princesses, but we had to pretty much force her to put on this princess dress (the face tells that story). She has been anti dress lately.

We got to take in a little jousting. This show was just a preliminary joust involving cabbages and rings. Later in the day would be the “joust to the death.”

Petting the horses was a treat.

Emma soon forgot that she had the dress on and enjoyed herself again. Kenny was wearing a pirate costume that we got at a garage sale.

One last ride. Another spinning ride that was all, in this case, women powered.

We ended the day with an elephant ride. This was a little bit of a surprise. Yes, the elephants themselves were a surprise, but the bigger surprise was that when we sent our little girl to ride the elephant without either of us, we assumed that one of the workers would be riding with her. Nope. Our little four year old was all by herself.

After wards, Emma said she didn’t want to say anything while on the elephant, but she did get a little scared when she thought the elephant was going to tip over (not just her, but the whole elephant). Just a little scared though.

Uncie Dayle’s Scooter

We often head up to Great Uncle and Aunt Maloney’s on Sunday afternoon. One of the activities that has become a favorite of the kids is to ride on Uncie Dayle’s scotter. Their nice big driveway makes for some nice rides.

Jacob’s Well Cow

Posted by danaandtammy on Saturday Jun 5, 2010 Under Kid Pictures, Photographs

Our kids have been growing up going to Waterworks at our church, Jacob’s Well. Kenny hopefully will soon do a better job of not just crying while in his class. Emma really enjoys all the fun and learning about God that is a part of her class. There is a toy in the toddler class that both Emma and Kenny have enjoyed…a rocking cow (cows are more popular than horses here in Wisconsin). So here are shots of Kenny on the cow, a present day picture of Emma on the cow, and finally a picture of Emma at age 18 months on the cow.

Kenny Loves Corn on the Cob

Posted by danaandtammy on Tuesday Jun 1, 2010 Under Kid Pictures, Photographs

I cut the corn off the cob for Kenny’s first helping of corn, but after watching his sister he insisted on getting the whole cob. I don’t think he will ever go back to plain old kernel corn again.

Drawings for the Princesses

Emma loved visiting Disneyland and all the princesses, so a few weeks ago she decided to make drawings to send to the princesses. We sent them away to Disneyland so hopefully they got to the princeses.
