reflections of the leaf festival

We are recovering from two weekend shows back to back. Both were located at Lake Eden- a gorgeous location to be. The fall colors were so pretty reflected on the lake.
 The view looking out from our vendor booth.
 Big puppets marching by in the parade!
 Our kids (and their little friends) watching the parade.
 A peek at our organized stock behind the display. 
 We camped (that's our tent with the maroon top) right behind our vendor booth. All weekend long family and friends came by to visit around the fire bowl. 
 And we all kept warm by the fire at night and made s'mores.
On Saturday night the boys drove home to sleep and Lili and I camped out. We stayed up dancing and watching the fire show way past her bedtime. We took a long walk to look at the stars and take silly photos of ourselves. We cuddled to keep warm in our sleepbags... It was such a treat to get some quality one on one time with my girl!

In the morning we watched the steam rise off the lake and drank hot drinks to stay warm (coffee for me, hot coco for the Lil). 
We were all dirty, exhausted, and overstimulated by the time we packed up all of our camping stuff & all of our art stuff and drove home on Sunday. We met some wonderful people, heard some great music (mostly from our booth while we worked, but it still sounded great!)  The Be Good Tanyas, Tinariwen (what a treat), The Mickey Hart Band, to name just a few. We reveled in the vendor comradeship that happens at a longer show...
It will be a few weeks before we open up our vendor display, whew!
