few weeks ago, my father and I took my niece and nephew for the second pirate themed weekend at the faire.
|Pirate Captain Grace O'Malley. (she and my niece bonded over French Fries)|
First, we visited the Children's Discovery Garden, where Dad taught, or rather attempted to teach the kids how to play giant checkers.
We perused the Imaginrium Gallery and Museum. The kids were fascinated by the fluffy dragon puppets. Then we found ourselves at the Maze!
After the finding our way through the maze, we rode some of the rides. It's neat seeing rides operated not by machines but by burly men or in some cases by the rider pulling a rope.
We also got to ride an elephant! It was a lot of fun, but I was seated over her hind leg so every time she took a step, I felt like I was going to be thrown off.
We walked around the shire some more, began the kids' wooden weapon collection,
Played more games,
