Weekend Wrap-Up # 10

This past Friday, Rick & I headed down to Colorado Springs to see family & to go to the Colorado Renaissance Festival! We took last year off from visiting the fest & I feel like it made us extra excited to go this year! I guess absence really does make the heart grow fonder!

After a great breakfast with Rick's mom & dad, we headed out bright & early on Saturday morning & headed into Larkspur where the festival is located. The Colorado Renaissance Festival is the largest stationary Ren Fest in the United States & it is truly an amazing event to attend! We got to see the hilarious Arsene of Paris (one of our favorites) & Celtic Legacy (a bag piping group). We also got to visit my favorite booth, Nature's Educators. Among other animals, Nature's Educators rescues wounded raptors. They then bring those raptors out to educate the public on birds of prey & conservation. It was so nice to spend the day with our family & especially our nieces & nephew!

On Sunday evening, I packed up my folding lawn chair & some bug spray & headed down to UNC for the first Concert Under the Stars of the season! It was a fantastic performance with the new Bluegrass Faculty. I'm definitely excited for the rest of the summer's line-up!
