Greening Up The Mountains Festival

The Greening Up The Mountains event is a street festival in our little town. It’s purpose is to celebrate the arrival of spring and the name comes from the fact that as the trees start to regrow their leaves, you can literally see the tree line inching up the mountains with each passing day until this part of the country regains its lush green appearance.

The festival features live local music and plenty of local artisans selling their craft. There are also plenty of things for the kiddos to do. They had sandboxes set up…

…and freaky costumed mascots, which Parker still loves…

…and a basketball hoop – watch out for the future NBA Star! Check out his form…

…and there were lots of people so I kept a death grip on the kids (we were there with Parker’s best friend and his family)…

…as you can tell, Parker wanted to run free. Oh, and he was afraid that his pink balloon would fly away. Yup, there was lots of fun to be had (for the non-agoraphobic people in our group), but I finally relaxed when we find a church playground that was entirely fenced and had no one else in it.

See, I can be loads of fun!
