BrickSwag is the #1 membership for LEGO fans. Each month includes official LEGO kits to build and keep, exclusive t-shirt, Build magazine, Funky Fig trading cards, and more surprises. My husband and I love LEGOs, but we haven't really had them in our house in a long time. We have little ones that make it difficult to have small LEGOs out for play. However, we have been discussing whether our oldest son is ready for real LEGOs. This looks like a great opportunity for us to try with him to see how well he can keep them away from his younger siblings.
Their mission is To Inspire, Educate, and Entertain with LEGO bricks. If you are interested in checking out BrickSwag as well, US Family Guide is providing my readers with a 20% Off coupon for their BrickSwag subscription by using the coupon code FAM20.

The Ohio Renaissance Festival has been something that my husband and I have loved for a very very long time. It has been a while since the last time we went simply because of having kids. We wanted to wait to go until they were old enough to really enjoy it. When I found out that they were offering reviews, I decided it was time to take the kids. My son is five. He really is about the right age to start enjoying the festival. My 20 month daughter struggled with it. We had to keep her in the stroller most of the time because the place was PACKED! It's awesome to see it so successful, but a little nerve wracking when she wanted to walk around.
This place is a permanent structure. All the buildings stay year round even if it is only open from August through October. The last time I went, every building was occupied. This time I noticed that there were move than just the buildings filled with wares. They have expanded to have a couple new buildings and tents. There are a plethora of rides and games for the kids. The rides are not run by electricity. Everything is run by man/beast power. The games include: Archery, Axe Throw, Knife Throw, Star Throw, Drench a Wench, Jacob's Ladder, Storm the Castle Climbing Tower, Darts, Pong Bows, Fish Follies, Catapulting Frogs, Vegetable Vengeance, Balista, Mug Slide, and Test of Strength. The names of the rides don't really explain what the ride is, but most are a type of swing. They are called Sea Dragon, Crow's Nest, Barrel of Bedlam, Carasello, Ship Swings, Witch's Hat Slip Giant Slide, Round a Go, and War Horse Rides. War horse rides are actually the horses used in the joust where you can actually ride a horse that the knights ride. Some thing not listed on their website that I think was new this year, was also Camel Rides. They actually had four camels. My husband and son both got to ride one together. It was really awesome.
One of the best parts of the festival are all the shows that are available. Honestly, I don't know that you can actually see every show in one day. I think it would take at least two full visits to see every troupe One of my all time favorite shows is The Swordsmen. They have several different acts that they put on, but I love the ones where they show men how to be "manly and romantic." This particular show was originally the one that my husband was going to propose to me during, but it rained and they didn't allow any nonprofessional on the stage. We were lucky enough to see this exact show when we went. It's a comedy and also shows tremendous swordsmanship.
Also a must for any renaissance festival is the knight joust. These are actually professional knights and some are even a part of Full Metal Jousting. They perform various horse riding games and actually full out joust right in front of you. They wear full plate armor and use real wooden lances. I believe in previous years they have even had knights get injured because they do not pull punches. Live and real entertainment!
It was a fantastic day. I highly recommend visiting to everyone I see.

The Ohio Renaissance Festival is a place that holds many dear memories for me. My favorite is that my husband proposed to me there. We went every year before we had kids. We had most of the shows memorized and owned many of the performers' CDs. It was just a fun relaxing afternoon. I have an "old time" photo of the exact moment my husband dropped to his knee and held out my engagement ring. I will forever love the place. It's been a while since the last time we went just because our kids were too little to enjoy it. Honestly, our youngest is still too little, but we are going this year any way. I miss it too much not to go when my son is really ready to enjoy it.

ReviewI was given a Silicone Basting Brush and Pastry Brush for my honest opinion. I love to cook and bake. I have used normal "hair-like" bristle brushes for my cooking in the past and was not happy with how much I waste whatever it is I am basting on the item. Hair-like basting brushes soak up liquids. They are essentially paint brushes and if you have painted with a paint brush, you know that much of your paint gets soaked into the bristles. You find a lot of paint wasted when you rinse out your brushes. Well with silicone basting brushes, the baste drips right off of the brush onto your cooking. Yes, this can get messy. You need to be ready to baste because if you dip them into your baste and hold them up, everything you just dipped it into will come right off.
I used these brushes to baste homemade rolls with butter. As soon as I pull my rolls out, I immediately put butter on top of them giving them a wonderful flavor. Normally, I take half a stick of cold butter and rub it over the top of the rolls. Since the rolls are still hot, the butter melts quickly and soaks into them. For 12-15 rolls, I typically use half a stick of butter. It really isn't necessary to use THAT much butter, but that's the only way I have been able to get butter on all the rolls in the past. Using the basting brush, I melted my half stick of butter and basted them that way. Not only did I not burn my fingers, but I probably used only a quarter of a stick of butter doing it this way. They rolls still taste great since the excess butter isn't rolling off of them. I was able to use the exact amount of butter necessary to achieve light buttery flavor. I loved using my basting brush. I am so happy to have two of them so I can baste vegetables with olive oil with one and baste rolls with butter with the other one while cooking one meal. I won't have to wash them continuously while cooking. These are a must have in the kitchen!
