Lotus Festival

On Saturday we took the girls to Lotus Festival in the Park which is a free event and so awesome. We got to hear some really awesome music. Our favorite was Eilen Jewell. She was very folksy/bluegrassy.

The girls enjoyed dancing around while listening to the music too.

Pumpkin may have thought it was a little loud at a few points.

The girls had fun playing on the playground that was in the park also.

There were different art stations set up around that the girls got to make some fun artsy creations.

It was a chilly day that ended in rain. We had fun though enjoying being together after many days of being so busy and on the run.

Our night was going to end with an 8:15 performance by Strange Fruit. We headed downtown, got in the very front of the crowd and at 8:15 the "Three Belles" came out to perform their act. Just as they began to climb the poles, the rain came and it came hard. They had to stop the act and we had two very disappointed little girls on our hands. Pumpkin was so disappointed and puckered out her little lower lip and said, "I watch girls. I watch girls." We had a good discussion on being grateful for the chance to have seen them the day before. (I was pretty disappointed too.)

Just being together is all that counts and taking in all that this awesome community has to offer.
