In our house, May means a trip to the Renaissance Festival at the Castle of Muskogee in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
We have been going to this particular festival for about 8 years. We originally went because we got free tickets from a friend. We were so-so about going, but then heard that our favorite singing pirates were also going to perform there for the first time, and that changed our minds!
We have been following the Jolly Rogers singing pirates for close to 20 years. Caleb is a huge fan, and is even know to some of his friends as "pirate boy". Caleb and the pirate Bloodbeard share a special bond (the bond of bad jokes, to be exact) and he has even been on stage with them a couple of times to share in the fun!
Seeing the pirates every year in the fall and in the spring has really become one of the highlights in our family adventures! Its been great becoming friends with these guys!
