It's in the 80's today . . . and it's February 2nd. HOT. At least it's also gorgeous outside - lots of sun, blue skies, pretty clouds. A perfect day for an art festival, no? Apparently that's what thousands of other people thought too. :) We should've gotten a clue when it took us almost 30 minutes to find & get a place to park - $5. From what I hear, short people (me) should have been feeling really good compared to the tall people (hubby). All I could see as we walked through the throngs of people was the backs of those in front of me . . . squeezing through. HE could see JUST HOW MANY people we had to wade through - a lot. :)
We would have LOVED to slowly wander through the exhibits - the few that we saw were so pretty & interesting . . . but the heat, people, & my whiny son made us give up early. So rather than look at art, we got lost instead. :)
Took the wrong shuttle bus to the OTHER side of town, took it back (got to see the lake though - PRETTY!), and then we decided to walk the few blocks left to where we'd parked (rather than wait for the correct shuttle bus to arrive. (OH - and by the way. I never EVER want to hear of any kid complaining about riding the bus again! We rode school buses - the shuttles - and they have AIR CONDITIONING! Seat belts...SUSPENSION even!! I didn't feel my teeth rattle in my head once . . . and my tall hubby didn't bump his head on the roof - they're taller!! So no more whining - ya hear??)
So we walked to the car - and all in all, it was a lovely day. Wasn't short - took us all morning and most of the afternoon - but it was beautiful out and we spent it with friends & family....so who am I to complain? :) Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure . . .
Ella wanted to hold hands with me on the ride there . . .
Some of our wanderings . . .
More wanderings, and a different post process on the picture. This is what it FELT like - a nice warm spring day :)
