The Garlic Festival

10-1 garlic fest 042, originally uploaded by erika8602.

Since Lily's daddy had yesterday off, we decided to take a trip north to the Garlic Festival. It was a beautiful day, so warm in the sun you wouldn't believe it was the last day of September. Uncle Dave came along with us, and all the adults enjoyed some highly garliced food for lunch. (Ok, so that's not really a word, but it works). Lily enjoyed a hot dog, but the highlight of the day for her was the kids' area. She was given a pumpkin and could choose from all sorts of stickers, pipecleaners, markers, tissue paper, glue and clay to decorate it.

After her pumpkin was done, we headed over to the face painting tent. She was deciding between a butterfly and a kitty face while waiting very patiently for her turn. When she got into the seat she decided on the kitty face. She sat very still while her face was painted, then just stared into the mirror when it was done. As soon as she got down from the chair she dropped to the ground, and crawled off meowing.

After mommy and Uncle Dave did a little shopping for some new kinds of garlic to try (we brought home Music and German Red) we headed back to the car. It was a long day and Lily took a little cat nap on her daddy's shoulder.

I love the last picture. So sweet. I'm glad you guys made it to the festival. Grace was too sick, so we stayed in all day. My mom went and had a great time on Saturday.

Love this festival... haven't been in a few years. Tom said it's just gotten enormous since the last time I went. Lillian looks ADORABLE!
