Spring Fairy Festival

A couple of weekends ago, we went to the annual Greenwood School Fairy Festival. I can't even begin to explain how magical super fun it was. We met up with great friends Andrea, Sophia and Domi. It was fun to sit back and share the fun with them. I've posted MANY photos...and I have many MORE. They had sooo many things to do....basket decorating, wreath making, facepainting, fairy wand creations, BUBBLES...and Popsicles....music, a drum circle, seed planting, fairy tea party...with a Fairy Queen who went one by one and adorned the children with fairy dust. Oh, and an egg hunt! Thank you, Andrea, for turning us on to such a wonderful event!

Looks like amazing fun! But, oh the pictures! Absolutely beautiful. Any opportunity I have to grab my camera is a marvelous one (and I can't touch your skill), but a fairy festival?! Magical!

Ohh, so many photos to love. My favorites are the bubbles, the confetti shots and the last one. Between the sweet smile and that shiny spot of glitter on her face, it just sparkles!

Stephanie said...

Oh my gosh!! All the photos are just beautiful! You captured the spirit and fun of the festival. You really got some precious ones of Mia.

Cara said...

What a perfect day. I am always amazed at how many photos you post. They always tell such a nice story. I love the attitude shot and the belly shot.

That looks like so much fun! Great shots of your day. I wish there was a fairy festival here, but we have a Ren Fest, so I guess we see a few fairies there. ;)

O!M!G! How I wish we had something like that around our area. What fantastic fun! I didnt want the post to end. I cant believe how many fun activities there was. I wont even go into which shots were my faves because that is way too many to list. Thanks for sharing your magical day! :o)

Oh Tanya! How incredible! This festival looks so amazing - how I wish there were something like it here! We might have to drive down to Austin for it next time. :o) Your pictures are amazing, you captured the spirit of the place so well and I'm not even going to try to pick a favorite. There are TOO many!
