How fast it goes, how fast. Just yesterday he was coming home. Now, the Dude is two.
The Dude in question is the boy in blue, btw.
In celebration of his birth*, we went to the Sterling Renaissance Festival, which was all that I had remembered and more. The Featureless Saint and I last went when we were wee bairns and just dating -- because there is no better way to show just what kind of geek you are than to go to a Ren Faire. We think it might have been 1992.
Lots has changed, of course, but the spirit remains. I speak both of the Fest and of The Featureless Saint and I.
One change is above. One change desperately wanted to get her face painted:
'twas a fine way to spend a day, especially a day that is also your son's birthday. You can tell he partied hard, at least.
Happy Birthday, Goober.
* No, we didn't take him to the Faire in celebration of his birthday. A couple of other events lined up just right that there was an opportunity to seize.
