Pictures From the Event

The cultural festival at the library was so much fun, I wanted to share pictures. Enjoy!

First, we went to find my friend. She took pity on this little eating machine and fed her sticky rice. THAT bought Laura a friend for life.

Then we walked around and checked out the sights. Would you believe this Chinese Dragon is made of balloons and stretches most of the length of the library? He’s still there, so if you get a chance, check him out at the Blue Valley Library before he blows away. ;D

There were tons of pictures and porcelain art work, but I loved the whimsy of this teapot. Check out the doll. I think they’re Katakana, but correct me if I’m wrong.

Then it was time to leave and I was BUMMED. (We missed the calligraphy and water color classes, the dancers and *sob* the martial artists.) But we DID manage to stay long enough to see a great drum team practice. It was a wonderful morning.

    Thanks, Sarahjayne. The dragon really floored me.

    How fun! My boys would have LOVED the dragon (though I fear they would have tried to sneak a balloon). Looks like a wonderful day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Victoria Dixon says:

    And I wouldn't blame them, Janet. I would have loved to touch it (Okay, POKE it) but it's too far away. LOL The detail they put into it was amazing, though. Tiny balloons for scales, shiny ones for the claws….

    That picture of Laura and Lily is precious!

    It was fun for us, Sandy and we didn't really get to participate. *sniffs* I'm told it's an annual event, so I WILL make a day of it next year. ;D

    Thanks, Lisha! Lilly LOVES people and had a blast that day. Laura was kind and formally introduced me to the librarians, so later on Lilly starts walking up to people and saying, "Hello! My name's Lilly. It's so nice to meet you!" She cracks me up.
