Wordful Wednesday: Columbus, Over Achievers and Organized Gluttony

I've mentioned before that I attend the First Church of the Over-Achievers. You know the one where nothing is done without days of preparation  a little planning?  On Monday, our family had a chance to step back in time to celebrate two important birthdays. Not Columbus, but the sweet sixteenth and the 40th birthday of two fair maidens.

Everyone was assigned a team color for the following events. 
This was open to all ages, skills, talents and  inabilities.

The instructions were given by the birthday mom.

The food was prepared and blessed by Sister Smackyourknuckles.

Is that Marco Polo? No, it's Feng Shui. 

Plans were underway to win the spoils of the day.

The treasure box filled with loot added to the competitive drive of the crowd.

The sharpshooters were showing off, arrows were lost and small children remained safe.

The costumes spanned a few continents and centuries.

What does one eat where gluttony is expected?

Venison, turkey and pig were on the menu.

Merlin participated in the gluttony before, during, and after the games.

Everyone was assigned the name of a famous character on their back to guess.
 History was taught, learned and distorted throughout the day.

Happy Wednesday,
