|Smithsonian Folklife Festival 2014 Daddy and Cole|
On the Fourth we went to a friend's house for games and fireworks. On Saturday we wanted to go back to the Folk life Festival for a few more shows and Cole asked to come along.
He thoroughly sniffed the drums made with real animal skins, from African animals of course.
After that he settled down with Dad to watch from tree shade while I went into the tent to hear the terrific story with song by this woman...
I returned to my quilting friend, Jin Yuanshan, to give her a small art quilt I made to mark the occasion of our meeting.
At first it seemed like she thought I was giving her my purse!! Yikes! Awkward!! I found the little quilt in the purse and presented it with both hands as a friend told me was polite. She was so appreciative, she gave me a lovely little flower she had made. She has taught at the Houston show, so maybe I'll see her again.
One woman asked who groomed him, and when I said I did it, she said she loved his cut. And she's been grooming dogs for 30 years!! Wowie!
We all came home again, tired and hot but we spent the day together! We finished the day with a bit of porch sitting where we are reading a book aloud to each other. Ahhhh, all that and a glass of wine! The holiday story will continue in the next post.
