A lot of my favorite people live in Greenbelt, and it is always a blast to bring Florian there and see him really express himself with all of our artist buddies.
One of the best parts was bringing Genghis, who is in his element at festivals. For some reason everyone who sees him wants to stop and snuggle, and/or photograph or videotape him.
Some paparazzi literally followed Genghis around with video cameras, and everyone we knew made sure to get a hug. Genghis spent most of his time there sprawled out on his back, drinking in the adoration.
|My friend Katy was just one of Genghis' admirers|
For Mother's Day, we went to the Faerie Festival, an annual event in Maryland.
We've been once before, but this year was even better because my sister and niece came, and we also found a unicorn who consented to go with us.
A bunch of faerie folk have a big plot of land where they have vendors, music,
activities for the kids,
one really bad food stall,
and lots of space to run and prance.
There was one other unicorn besides ours, and it was lovely to see them together.
My sister had a great time too.
A definite high point was this guy, a magician of sorts who entertained us with his sleight of hand before jumping back on his giant ball and rolling down the hill.
You don't find talent like that every day.
After a certain point, our unicorn changed into a sultan and it was time to go home.
How do YOU like your festivals? Dog-free, or with canines and unicorns happily coexisting?
