The Bristol Renaissance Faire is one of my favorite events of the summer, and really, of the entire year. It’s something that we look forward to and talk about months in advance. Last year we left two week old Tommy with his grandparents, which worked out for the best because it rained a fair amount. This year at 13 months old, we knew that he’d enjoy it a lot more.
I’m continuing my summer memories series on the blog, featuring another event I did not share in a timely fashion following Tommy’s birth. Tommy was just a couple weeks old when Jake and I attended Bristol this year. He didn’t come with us, which worked out for the best, because it ended up raining quite a bit. Next year, he’ll be a year old and will enjoy it a lot more. Meanwhile, I attended it in a newborn sleep deprived state and didn’t even look at my pictures for weeks.
The Bristol Renaissance Faire is one of my absolute favorite events of the summer. People always try to tell me that the Wisconsin State Fair offers the best people watching around, but Bristol is ten times better. Jake and I have been to Bristol nearly a dozen times and don’t feel a need to hit every show every time anymore. Consequently, the pictures I’m sharing from the 2017 Faire represent just a small portion of what Bristol has to offer.
