We, somehow, got a Saturday off this month and decided to enjoy the Johnny Appleseed festival in our hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana. We make it a point to go every year, but it was nice to be able to enjoy it this year–and not be on a rushed schedule. This is our favorite festival in Fort Wayne–the sounds of banjos playing, the smell of caramel apples and root beer, children running around painted and dressed up like Native Americans–it is the most humbling and warm feeling in the world. We wish we could do this day again–over and over and over.
Here are some photos from our day with the kids at the festival:
We found this amazing handcrafted cheese board for $12 at the festival–I didn’t photograph the back, but it has all of the information (when it was made, where it was made, etc.) carved on the back of the handle. I’m ordering a dough board and a custom music box (for when Eila graduates) from this guy too. Incredibly gorgeous and one of a kind!
Thanks for peeking into our awesome day with the kids–see you next time!
