And The Adventure Begins It has been so long since I have been on here that I could not remember my password. I am so behind and have so many great places to share from the last few months. I hope I can catch up.

For my mom’s sake, I will try to blog as we go along for this trip. She does not like when we are gone this long. I have said we will be gone till we run out of clean underwear or June 2 whichever comes first.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries We drove to my dear friend- Sue Selznick’s house today. We stopped at the Virginia Renaissance Faire on the way. We got a later start than planned and only had about two and half hours before they closed. This was not enough time. We watched five shows and ate chocolate covered strawberries and cheesecake on a stick. Everything is taste better on a stick. Cobey loved the Sword Fighting 101. Both kids said they did not know there was so much to sword fighting. They decided it was a real sport. Cobey wants to read more about it.  Claire’s favorite shows were Klass Klowne and Mad Mechanicals. Klass Klowne is an acrobatic danger show. Brady Wegener is a great performer and lots of fun. We all enjoyed Mad Mechanicals who present Shakespeare in “a fun and irreverent way that everyone can relate to.”  They do a lot of improv and audience participation. I was  hoping they come to NC but they said they didn’t. The only show we did not care for is The Pyrates Royale. Claire said it was too much singing. It was a fun taste and now we can’t wait till we go to the one in Charlotte.

On the drive we listened to Lamplighter’s Theater production of Titus: Comrade of the Cross. It was a full of suspense and drama and a story set in the time of Jesus.  Both the kids enjoyed it.
