Life with Ladybug: The Renaissance experience

By Shannon Magsam, Ladybug’s mama and co-founder of nwaMotherlode

Last weekend, my family traveled back in time to the Middle Ages.

We saw knights and fair maidens, decided against touring the torture chamber (we didn’t want to pay the extra 2 bucks), talked to a fortune-telling dog name Karma (her best prediction: “I see you getting licked very soon”), saw acts of bravery from a traveling circus team and enjoyed the ambiance of walking around the pretty “village”.

This annual Renaissance Festival is held at The Castle of Muskogee (Oklahoma) and runs every weekend in May. (The Castle is also home Halloween events in the fall and the Christmas Kingdom in December. Oh! and they also have fireworks for a few days in July.)

Here are a few pics from our day:
