We went to the opening weekend of the Carolina Renaissance Festival It was pretty much the same as last year. I think they need to do something different with it each year, we are starting to get bored with it.
We saw Corpse Bride. It was a little too short, and it suffers from being in the shadow of Nightmare before Christmas. It was enjoyable, but it just doesn't have the charm of Nightmare.
We also saw Serenity and it was awesome. It does a great job of finishing the story that was started in the series. I really hope it does well, a sequel would be very cool.
