The Renaissance Festival 2013

Yep, my picture-taking skills are abysmal.  Again, I was having too much fun.  Just like last year, pictures were an after thought.  Even though I told the woman who does my hair (an absolute angel) that I would get some ’cause she wants to take her husband there!  And I didn’t get a single photo of my kids!!!  Or Saver’s S.O.!  Not that they cared. *sigh*  We also had my BFF with us and she’s very anti-photo.  Ah, well.  Here’s what I got:

And, of course, I have to have my crystals.  Top row, left to right, Dumoriterite, Rhyolite, and Serpentine.  Next row, left to right, Amazonite, a Barite Desert Rose, and a crystal 'Floater' from a Geode.  The long bottom crystal is Smokey Quartz.

This year I decided to try my luck with Geodes.  This is one side of the Geode.

Another year at Renfest over with.  I’m planning for next year already!  (And I should make a list of pictures to take for a much better memory collection. *shakes head*)

Saaaaaaver…you should put in a picture of what you and your S.O. got as well!

Night All!
