hmmmm, now let's see...





dominatrix leading poor slave-boy on a leash... check. Tree-man... check. Turkey legs, stake on a stake, and thousands of the strangest adults wearing their finest medieval dress-ups... check, check, check! Monday afternoon the Smith family made their annual trip to the Arizona Renaissance Festival. I hadn't been in a few years, so I was especially excited. We spent the day eating, shopping, taking pictures of freaks, and swinging from very high ropes. I knew there was a reason we needed to move back here. What more could you ask for?!
Here are a couple more things we've been up to since moving to the Valley of the Sun...

Happy Birthday Papa!!

Wednesday the family celebrated my dad's birthday at Red Robin. Afraid any gift we got for my dad might end up in the "pile" with all the other unused/unopened presents from earlier birthdays and many prior Christmases, we decided a Harbor Freight gift card would be put to better use. We ended the night on a sweet note with Key Lime, Chocolate Satin, and Lemon Meringue pies.
Gilbert Historical Museum
My mother is a very talented artist. I used to think that I had inherited this talent, but recent projects have proved otherwise. Anyway, a few of her drawings were displayed at the Gilbert Museum in an art show. It was neat to see her pictures hanging among the other lovely art. I have driven past that museum a million times and always had a secret urge to take a tour of it, thanks mom for giving me an excuse to finally go inside.

So it's true you live in Gilbert now! I know Richard is very sad he missed out on the family trip to the Festival. Hopefully someone threw rotten tomatoes in his honor.

Ya the man in chains is pretty bad but actually my first thought was, why isn't he wearing a jacket. It's cold outside. Needless to say my standard for normal is being highly skewed.
