Earth Day Festival

Last year we had only lived in town for a few weeks when we attended the Earth Day festival.  It was our first event to attend in Nashville.  It was also our first time to go to Centennial Park.  
These three sweet little girls had no idea in just three short months their lives would change forever.
These two had no idea how special sharing a piece of corn with your sister can be.
 This little girl had no idea she would soon be fighting for her life.
 These two had no idea how close their sister bond would become with one saving the others life.
 
You never know what life is going to throw at, so take time to enjoy it all!  Take time to go to the Earth Day festival an share an ear of corn with you sister.  You never know when it could be you last chance to do it!
We went to Earth Day festival again this year.
 The girls all planted a seed.  Unfortunately, this was the first thing we did and I don't think their plants survived the ride in the wagon all day:-(  But they did enjoy planting them.
 They all had to have snow cones!

 It was windy!
 They enjoyed watching the Ballet Folklorico.

 Devon listened to a talk on composting while the girls made puppets.
 You can't go to a festival without corn on the cob!
 This year Story and Cadence each had their own.  It was so good!

 Devon and I had a veggie wrap.  There was a guy about five feet from us having a turkey leg.  I wondered what he would have said if he knew we were having tofu:-)
 The girls also shred some chicken strips.

 Cadence loved the drummers that played between the bands!
 Before leaving we found a face painter. 
 Story got a flower.
 She was so talented!  Cadence wanted a bird, so she copied the owl on her purse.  It was so cute!
Lyric decided on a sea turtle.
 The big girls rode in the wagon back to the car, so Cadence hitched a ride with me.
 We all had a great time, but there were lots of booths Devon and I didn't get to visit.  We have decided next year we will bring the kiddos in the morning and do the kid activities.  Then he and I will come back alone to visit all the booths and catch some of the bands.

I have always wanted to attend this festival but it lands on Michael's work week every year. Maybe next year!

Looks like you had tons of fun. Great idea about going back for adult time in the afternoon!
