New York Renaissance Faire Fun

My son loved all the pirates he saw everywhere, and of course had to check out all the food stalls.  He had to have one of the giant turkey legs that the Ren Faire is famous for, and while eating, chatted with two of the costumed period players who didn’t know what a plastic knife was, nor a napkin.  He even ate a piece of the napkin, much to my son’s delight, lol.

WIN Mike the Knight- New Books Available

My son loves the new series Mike the Knight, on Nick Jr. In truth, he likes the dragons and Trollee better then Mike, but hey. He also likes Evie’s (Mike’s sister) pet frog, who jumps around as frogs do and once pretend to be a monster. The show is cute and illustrates how important it is to be a good friend, to share, and help others. Mike the Knight will be also touring across 15 areas from May 18-July 13.
