Kunstfest!

This weekend, we in New Harmony celebrated the German Crafts Festival that is formally known as Kunstfest!! Brace yourself for the photo-overload...

Here are a few photos of some of my favorite booths...

Grammy and I were excited to take these little co-pilots out to enjoy everything!


We packed up some Cheerios and Goldfish, and headed out...



We had so much fun, and got to try all sorts of new things...

 B sat on the town fire engine... She wasn't too sure what to think at first, 
but then the daredevil in her came out and she had a lot of fun!




Then we went to Uncle Andrew and Aunt Amanda's house to sit on the front porch and listen to Mrs. Kiesel play the accordion... B and Miles both loved it!


B sat with Great-Grandpa Alsop on the porch and tried with all her might not to pass out from exhaustion...

Then we went to watch Grammy's good friend (and our neighbor), Jan Morris...
We loved to listen to them sing, but we had to leave early because we had two crabby kiddos who were ready for their naps...


On the way back to the house, I turned around to check on B... And found THIS.
She had managed to sneak into Grammy's purse and find Miles' leftover Cheetos...
I guess her first taste of "junk food" was not intentional, but will be a funny story!!


Daddy wasn't with us the first day because he was working, so we were excited to get out with him on Day 2! :)

My two loves :)



 We enjoyed watching B take in all of the sights and sounds... And, of course, we picked up some of our favorite Deutsch foods.


Then it was time for a little more fun with the accordion... We danced, and Mrs Kiesel even let B play a few chords!! :)  B was a little wary, but she was too intrigued to pass it up!




Now it's time for a little shout-out!

During our shopping adventures, Allen stopped by the Post Office to pick up our mail... And he brought back these beauties sent by my bloggy friend, the sweet and adorable Catherine of Live by the Sun, Love by the Moon

THANK YOU SO MUCH, CATHERINE!
I love them so much that I wore them all around the festival! :)

I hope everyone else had as much fun this weekend as we did!
Now it's back to the grindstone... Work and working on the final details of B's party, which is LESS THAN two weeks away!! :( I am still trying to figure out if I'm excited or sad that my baby is so big!
