The DFDub

Yay for a great weekend with friends! On Friday night we had Gloria's in Rockwall and then took a few pictures on the pier.
We got slightly carried away with the timer. In fact we took 30 different shots. Sarah and I could've gone all night but the guys made us stop.

Saturday morning we got up and headed to Waxahachie for the Scarborough Renaissance Festival. It's a seven week affair and I must say one of the strangest events I've ever attended. The grounds were much bigger than I had expected. There were all kinds of shops, restaurants, rides (man-powered... not the cool kind of rides like roller coasters), and a huge list of little shows to see throughout the day. All of the workers were 100% in character at all times, as were a vast number of the attendees. Far too many people were dressed in costumes. Unfortunately it seemed that many of them hadn't showered or shaved in weeks.
Observe some fellow fair-goers in the background. Weird, right? It was the best people watching experience ever.

After about 3 hours we were ready to move on with our lives (but not without taking some hilarious memories with us). In fact I would highly suggest attending sometime just for the experience if you ever have the chance. I promise you will get plenty of great laughs.

We hit up a really nice mall in Plano, then made our way to Ikea in Frisco, and finished the day off at The Melting Pot in Addison. It was my first fondue experience, and despite a 4 hour ordeal and a rude waiter, it was a very delicious experience.

All in all, a very successful weekend. I hope it doesn’t take another two years for us to do it again. Thanks for being great hosts Shane & Sarah!!
