Last Sunday Carter and I made our way down Hwy 96 and went to the opening weekend of the Tennessee Renaissance Festival. The only other time I went was with Jill and her parents many years ago and from that all I could remember was how expensive it was to get in.

Carter was free, so that wasn’t a problem. We watched all the free events (jousting, magic shows, comedy) and it was a lot of fun. I don’t remember that many shows years ago. They had several rides for kids, but that all cost $3 – $4 to ride. We picked the camel ride and Carter had a blast.

The highlight for Carter was the castle. We see it every time we go to visit my mom and he always asks to go to the Harry Potter castle. Even though you don’t get to see much, he was still excited and impressed. All in all, I definitely would go back with him next year if he wants to go.
