Dickens Fair 2011

As of Friday I turned in my thesis and have officially earned my M.A. in Public History!  No more school forever!  Yay!

As a reward, the whole gang went to the Dickens Fair this year after having to skip out last year due to school obligations. Ian knows Prince Albert, so we got complimentary ticket this year, which meant we could buy more drinks inside.  It was a win-win for everyone!

1860s and 1840s collide.
We were presented to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Albert and I forgot to bow.  FAIL.  I was so nervous!  We didn't get a chance to see the Saucy French Postcard show, but we might be going back in a few weeks. I disappointed Prince Albert by not dancing with him before we left, so I guess I have to learn to waltz before then.

  2. If you dropped by the Dickens Family's Parlor, you might have spotted me in the kitchen. Glad you got a chance to go!
