Ye Olde Maryland Renaissance Festival!

Lindsay and I had a great day at the Maryland Renaissance Festival near Annapolis. The festival is 25 acres of medieval mirth and merriment in the forest. Lindsay has fond memories of a renaissance festival she went to in Massachusetts many years ago so we thought we would check this one out. This knight in armor offered us a friendly greeting.  

 Lindsay in one of the many plazas throughout the forest. It is a very expansive place with lots of cool buildings.
Here's one of the main eatery places. Lots of fried festival fare.
A cool bagpipe band playing in the jousting arena.
I forgot to put sunscreen on at the beginning of the's your sign.
Lindsay ate too much for's your sign. She's the cutest glutton I've ever seen.

If I didn't go to law school, I might have been a Shakespearean actor. Lindsay says I play a wicked Romeo...
Anyone tried fried macaroni and cheese on a stick? Lindsay and I can now say we have...kinda tasty, actually.
Funnelcake fries!
The jousting tournament was my favorite part...I believe this knight's name was Ulrich von Lichtenstein.

Officially known as the "Squire on the Wire", this guy did a fun comedy/acrobatic show including crossing a wire stretched out over the audience. The people underneath this kilt-wearing comedian weren't laughing though. I wonder why...

Blue Moon Cafe!!!!

Today Lindsay and I ventured up to Baltimore to partake in one of the true delicacies ever introduced to mankind's tastebuds...CAPTAIN CRUNCH FRENCH TOAST!!!! This culinary delight is only available at Baltimore's Blue Moon Cafe, of Diner's, Drive-ins, and Dives fame. Imagine it...three slices of Texas toast saturated in a special cream, covered in crushed Captain Crunch, fried in butter, served with homemade whipped cream, fresh strawberries, bananas and blueberries, and a dusting of cinnamon...That's go visit the bishop goodness! Nothing so divine has ever graced my test buds...except Lindsay. After one and a half slices I was down for the count. The richness took me over. Overall, it was well worth the drive north. The pictures can never adequately portray the srumdiddlyumptiosness of the food. Maybe you can lick your screen and get the slightest hint.

We also ordered their special biscuits and gravy!
