Richmond Folk Festvial, Year 2 - Day 2: Rain, Man

So, it's still raining here at the Richmond Folk Festival. But it didn't stop these guys from doing whatever it is they're doing:

What are they doing??

After experiencing this amazing entertainment outside, we decided to check out what was going on inside the tents. We saw this incredible Indian dancer:

I was mesmerized.

And I made this hat:
New hat.

It's a little big...
...but I love it!
Then I lost my hat. But I got ice cream.

And anybody who's anybody knows that any day a toddler has ice cream is a good day.

Oh, and of course I rode on the carousel again:
with my cousin Chase!!!

So despite the lack of a certain red dinosaur and all the friggin' rain, I had a great time. See ya next year, Folks!

Richmond Folk Festvial, Year 2 - Day 1: Suddenly Showers

It's that time of the year again: the leaves are changing, the air is crisp, the beach is closed (or it should be), and Mama has put away her summer sandals and broken out her boots. Also, it's time for the Richmond Folk Festival!

Last year the weather was warm and beautiful and I had SO MUCH FUN. Also, there was Seymour. Do you remember Seymour?
xoxoxo  SEYMOUR!!  xoxoxo
He was my first BFF. I had big plans for Seymour and me. Still do. But *spoiler alert* Seymour isn't going to be there this year. As if this isn't tantrum fodder enough, the weather forecast is for rain. Every day.

It delivered.

But it didn't stop me from getting my groove on.
I'm dancing!

I'm dancing!!

Or hula hooping.

A joyously welcomed addition to this year's festival, however, was a carousel.

Mama seemed to especially enjoy the carousel's rain sheltering benefits. We rode on it a lot. Like the rest of the day. Not that I minded, but they could try to maybe switch up the music a little bit. I sure hope tomorrow it rains a little less - just for Mama's sake.
