We went out to Fare Friday early. Well, early for us. Everybody said they were going to bring their kids. We brought Elle. No one else brought their kids. We came home Saturday evening. Oh, well, it was fun. We tried to arrange a single day for Elle to be out there. It just didn't work out. I didn't get any videos. I was really waiting for Sunday when Elle was to be in the parade and sporting some child sized chainmail. As I type this, the guys are out there having a great time. We will have a double good time next week.
