Fairie Festival 2015

We went to the Fairie Festival for the first time last year, but being that our kitchen was being remodeled and our home was in disarray, May and June really got the short shrift last year.

The fairie festival is something our friends J and M have done for the last 5 years with their daughter, S9 or 10. I'm going to stick with 9, because I think she was 9 at the festival. The festival itself is kind of like a renaissance festival except with fairies and it is always the first weekend in May, I believe, so it competes with a LOT of other things going on. But this is a fun thing to do.

Q9 got her face painted. C10 declined.

Not sure why they love Twig the Fairie so much, but we had to have our picture taken with her. You'll notice both Q9 and S9 are also wearing wings:

While listening to music on a hill and eating lunch, kids realized you could RUN DOWN THE HILL. Kind of fun, actually. This picture of C10 is great. She remembered her cloak this year, which last year we did not bring.

And ... a video. I'm not sure if this is the one where they were jumping over me or not.

There was a maze in a little stand of woods where you put color on your fingers and find something out about yourself depending upon which finger you colored in what order. This was them coloring their fingers at one of the stations, and then C10's hand behind a port-o-pottie. Sweet, right?

Kid remembered this gentleman from last year, and his bonking of small fairies on the head with his giant mallet. He was kind of hysterical, actually. So Q9 & S9 were running around him to try to get him to chase them ... which he DID. He chased them across the festival, them screaming. But of course he couldn't catch them, because they are speedy little fairies and he was a giant fairie squisher (and I do mean giant. This man was big). But THEN, somehow, somebody realized THEY could chase HIM. And that hugs and love made him CRY.

Two final photos. TCR45 wasn't feeling well, but well enough to put on C10's cloak. Awesoe picture. And C10 of course couldn't get enough of making fairie houses ... this year they made them by the stream. jAnd her she is IN the stream. And S9 and Q9 in line for something ... oh, in the maze in the woods!
