the fairy homes

We went to the Garden Festival at the park a couple weekends back. And we were pleasantly surprised to find they had a fairy trail, filled with little fairy houses! I have loved fairies since I was little, and fairy food and homes especially. Basically anything miniature that could be constructed with sticks, dirt, and flowers. I would love to make one of these for the fairy trail someday.

And our other favorite part of the garden festival was the fresh kettle corn and strawberry limeade.

We finally made it out to see the play in the park. It was a million and one degrees, but luckily we got there early enough to set our blanket on the more shady side. We met some friends, had ourselves a little dinner in the grass, and sweat it out with all the other crazy people. Its amazing what some people pulled out of their picnic baskets. The people watching was worth the price of admission.

volunteer day

On the last sunny Friday, I was happy to volunteer at Zilker Park with the Entrepreneurs Foundation. It was so nice to spend the day outside using my muscles, rather than sitting inside at my desk. We helped rebuild the steps by the Nature Center. So if you are ever visiting the blind birds, and take a walk down the trail, please watch your step!
