So I spent my afternoon making ration packs for faire... I'm weird, I admit it  ;D

Now that the smell of campfires has been washed from my hair, all(most) of the "faire grit" has been scrubbed out of the nooks and crannies and I've had time to reflect on the events of the weekend, I only have one thing to say.

*sigh*

Over too soon.

Our guests from up north, Minnesota and Lady Vodka, had a blast and were a hit at Clan McShug.  They brought blessedly cool/cold air with them which made camp and the fire that much more pleasant.  We were up to all hours, passing around bottles of Loki until the were empty...singing, laughing and enjoying the company of our fairemily

This past weekend was a much needed respite from the real world.

Minnesota and Lady Vodka checking in!  Thanks for the kind words, Fraser.  You and your whole clan were amazing:  generous, friendly, hospitable... just excellent people all around!  Thanks for all the safety meetings.  ;)  And um, Loki?  Yeah, I'd say we're big fans now.  So many great flavors and such smoothness... you'd never guess it's got so much booze in it.

We're already looking forward to next year!  Until then, stay safe!  And, don't hesitate to reach out if you're ever in our neck of the woods.
Well met!  Shall we commence a Safety Meeting at once?

One more down in history and can't wait till the next. Loved seeing fairmly and laughing and talking for hours. Cooking food and plans for gatherings along the way, and baby Cornbread helps the clan feel of family.

Looks like we may be going on either Saturday or Sunday ourselves.

We camped this past weekend and had a blast!  Got out to the grounds before noon on Friday and was shocked at how many people were already there.  By Saturday morning, main camping appeared to be completely full. Did not expect that on an off weekend.  Admittedly, it has been several years since we have camped but it was shocking the amount of people there, and the sea of RVs!  We may be forced into family camping next time just due to lack of comfortable space for tents that isn't backed up to an RV with a horrendous generator.  We all had a great time camping and in faire and my sister in law and family will definitely be back with us next year.  It was her hubby's first time to faire and he loved it, their 5 y.o. daughter was a little overwhelmed at first but quickly fell in love with it too.  My one complaint was during the fire show before the fireworks we had a beefeater standing at the front rail and blocked a lot of our view the entire show. Not sure if he was there for security purposes but that was a little frustrating!
Got faerie dust?
