Happy Father’s Day Nathan!
This year we are celebrating Father’s day on the Australian Father’s day date as we missed American Father’s day flying to Australia. We spent it somewhere mid-Pacific ocean crossing the international date line…

After breakfast and gift/card giving…
(we have a family tradition of giving Nathan a flag for Father’s day – this year he got the NJ State flag)

we headed to Sterling Forest New York for the NY Renaissance Faire.

Sterling Forest seems like such a fitting place for a medieval play ground.

There were loads of themed games and shops…

We climbed rocks until mum saw a snake – eek
(the snakes seem to be around this year 😦  )

A Renaissance Faire is not complete without faire food like turkey legs (mmmm turkey…)

Failed to pull the sword out of the stone – but gave it a good go!
(whoever pulls the sword out of the stone shall be the rightful king of England!)
