folk festival - a decade of fun

This was the tenth year the Folk Festival has been in our town. It is, in my humble opinion, one of the most fun weekends of the year. We always loved it before we had kids and now our kids clamor to get down to the Bangor Waterfront before they miss a second of the action.

I sure do love them for that.

One of their favorite parts, beside the culture, the international music, the sheer magic that our little city can pull off something so, of course, the bus ride from the parking lot to the festival.

Their second favorite part is seeing their friends. I do believe, by some miracle, that the french fries fall somewhere in the forth category rivaled only by getting to stay up so late!

We met the Stonyfield Farms milk man and partook of all of his free samples, at least once.  As if we don't know we like Stonyfield.  But we had to be certain.

Maya definitely had some dancing to do:

We even took the girls at the start and then took them home for a nap.  (Are we hardcore or what?) Both nights they were up until 10:30 PM which might as well be the middle of the night for them.  Our beloved baby sitter and friend, Becca, even came down Friday night with us before college snatched her up again on Saturday.  My mom always comes up and volunteers and spends the weekend at our house.  It is an annual event that we all look forward to.

Our girls were so flippin happy I myself was giddy.  (A rare event for sure.)

New favorite picture:

Up way past dark, Ella kept exclaiming "The stars are out!!!  The stars are out!!!"  Poor kid.
