This past weekend, our family decided to check out a couple of local festivals. The first one we checked out was the Storytelling Festival, sponsored by the Wake County Library System. Felicity and I go to the library twice a week for story time. She absolutely loves the music…the rhymes…and of course, the stories. Our regular “story teller” at the library mentioned this festival, so I figured it was worth checking out. The last “performance” we saw was a group of storytellers who ended in some sort of African dance. Felicity loved the drums. She even brought out her signature dance moves that includes a little head bobbing. I almost hated leaving, it was so beautiful outside. But, we also wanted to check out the International Blue Grass Festival…which just happened to be in Downtown Raleigh. While Felicity certainly enjoyed the music, she equally enjoyed running around. I could barely keep her contained. We did find this one wall (that I’ve made a mental note to revisit with one of my clients) that became the source of fun and giggles. I took a number of shots before I was told to put the camera away and enjoy the moment.
All in all, we had a fantastic time. It makes me excited for the fair to come to town in a few weeks. Felicity is going to love it!
