WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - “If life isn’t epic, make it epic,” said Oklahoma mom Lauren Krehbiel who drove up to Wichita on Sunday so her son, Thorin Krehbiel, could enjoy the Sedgwick County Renaissance festival.  

"Thorn was born prematurely with a heart, a congenital heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) and basically your heart has open holes and so you don't get oxygenated blood," said Krehbiel.  

She said she has always created memories with her children but when Thorin was born, “We had to make life epic,” added Krehbiel.   

Thorin’s favorite thing to do is dress up and attend the different Renaissance festivals.  

Sunday, he was Prince Thorin.  As the prince, he said he wanted a dance battle and it was granted.  

The crowd cheered him on while he showed off his moves to House of Pain’s song Jump Around. Thorin said, "Every music I hear is getting into the music." 

When Thorin was born, he spent his first year in the NICU (Neonatal intensive care unit).  His mom said the chances of survival were minimal.  

Although life expectancy is about middle age, Krehbiel said she tried not to think about life without her prince Thorin.  

Instead, she continues to create epic memories with him.
