so we had plans to go to the yellow daisy festival at stone mouton and then there was all of this stuff on social media about #blacklives matter and a bunch of people being killed at the yellow daisy festival. okay, never mind on that plan. but then thousands of people were showing up for the festival and all was well so, let's go. me, cooper, my mom, and payton loaded up and hit the road excited to visit a new festival. holymillionandonepeople. we waited in traffic forever, cooper had to pee, had to pull over in the huge line of traffic and try to discretely let him relieve himself, finally made it inside the gates, waited in more traffic, had to park 2 miles away, thankfully caught a shuttle bus. phew. made it.
my mom doesn't think it was worth the hassle but i do! beautiful weather, hundreds of booths filled to the brim with beautiful creations, delicious food (hotdogs! corn on the cob! funnel cakes! pickles! gelato! cheese fries! homemade candy and desserts! and more!), live music, and happy people everywhere. i had a blast taking it all in, watching the kids take it all in, and explaining to cooper what artists were. we got to talk to a painter who made incredible work (that we could never afford) and cooper was completely fascinated. i hope he will grow up well rounded and be able to appreciate all of the many different talents different people have.
