Willard Springs event and some Katie photos

When I was at Willard Springs, there was an event going on in the large field.  Katie and I walked over to see what was going on.   This man goes by "Rooster."  Pretty cool, huh?

This is the name of the group, and the logo shield:

From their website:  The Society for Creative Anachronism (Click to visit their website.) is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our “Known World” consists of 20 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.

Here are a few photos I snapped while there.  They were having a contest with swords at the time.


It wasn't a public event with booths selling food or items, but was open to the public in the sense that anyone can come into their area and walk around and watch the different activities.  It was interesting.

Lately Katie has wanted to sit outside in her stroller.  In fact, that's what she's doing right now.  She watches the cattle and birds and then will lie down and nap.  I'd never leave her out just on a rope, but in her stroller within eyesight of The Palms, I feel she's safe, and if there are any critters or loose dogs close by in the area, I just put the top down and she can still get the fresh air and the feeling of being outside.

Here's a hummingbird in the foreground that I didn't notice when snapping the pic of Katie:

And finally, a pretty sky after the sun went down:

From me and Katie, have a great weekend, everyone!  ❤❤


  1. Looks like a very interesting event, would be nice to experience it.

  2. The things that we could never do before starting this lifestyle are amazing. Makes you wonder how we survived before.
    Kathie looks very curious and content.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. You just never know what surprises are going to happen next door. Such a great experience. I got to hold a chihuahua puppy today - the sweetest little boy and just a love bug. Katie must be so happy and content in her stroller.

  4. I love that picture of Katie looking out the window, sweet little face.

  5. I love the Middle Ages too although I could have never survived such a difficult period. Sweet Katie. Enjoying her buggy. Good for her. Contentment is the secret to a happy life.

  6. My son used to travel with the Renaissance Festival. He was an elephant handler. Boy does he have some stories!!!


Thank you for your comments - we LOVE them!
