    It’s only a flesh wound!

  3. Annie says:

    Gotta respect the man who knows when to put his sword down.

    “Arise, Sir Loin of Beef…..Sir Osis of Liver……Milk of Magnesia……Quarter of Ten….”

    “But I don’t wanna be a renaissance man!”

  6. Amy says:

    This isn’t awkward. This is totally RAD.

  7. mary says:

    those girls are so cute

  8. Lori says:

    I don’t think this is awkward, I think it’s lovely

  9. Nick says:

    I don’t think the daughters quite fit into the time period for this photo. Especially with the bangs.

  10. Troy says:

    Who knew The Lady of the Lake had daughters? The brunette is clearly theirs. The other must be Merlin’s.

    If only Dad had placed his arms behind his back: “Come back here and take what’s coming to you. I’ll bite your legs off!”

    That’s a lot of “come hither” for the little girl…

    I don’t mind the medieval family pictures….think it’s a fun idea. But if you’re going to do it—do it. Dad—pony up and invest insome awesome medieval dresses (and shoes) for the wife & daughters! 🙂

    How much is it to rent a “family” for a photo? This must look great in his mother’s basement!

  15. Cindy says:

    Art, music, puffy shirts and the mullet reigned!

    Was this taken at the Virginia Tech duckpond? Sure looks like it. Hey, it’s got both water and a willow tree–must be the Virginia Tech duckpond, right?

  17. cranky says:

    There’s a joke about ‘cold shoulders’ in here but I can’t quite get there…anyone?

  18. CarrieM says:

    Men. It’s always about their sword, isn’t it?

  19. JC says:

    For whom the willow weeps.

    I think this is adorable. It’s lovely when a family shares a hobby/common interest. And it’s a lovely family too. I especially like the fact they didn’t make the wife kneel. Very progressive. The husband has good hair. ” Is this my sword or am I just happy to see you?” his eyes seem to be playfully asking us. All in all, a family portrait I’d be proud to hang over my fake fireplace.

    When the girls whine they say, “It’s not Faire!!!!”

  22. Have at you, foul cur!

  23. Incandescent says:

    King Archibald tries to pull the sword from the stone.

    OK, not a stone as such, but definitely very stony. The soft grass is very deceptive … it’s actually hard sedimentary conglomerate down here by the lake.

    Snigger not thou hideous beetle-headed pignut! … Just wait until I can get this sword out …

    The dude’s a hobbit. Even the kids are taller than him.
