Special Exposure Wednesday

5 Minutes for Special Needs

On Saturday we went to the Maryland Faerie Festival which gave Kayla another opportunity to dress up.

She liked sitting on the little toadstools, although she did keep tipping over on them!


Lucas enjoyed the festival too - and NOT being in his stroller, but instead getting to walk around like Kayla


I couldn't believe Kayla had no fear of the horse...ummm...unicorn...and just walked right up to start petting away


Lucas didn't have any fear either!


Then it was off through the woods to make a wish at the wishing tree. You write, or draw, your wish on strips of cloth then tie/hand them on branches or trees:


Kayla wanted to follow these dragons around:


Both kids enjoyed going through the maze:


Sitting in the royal chairs:

Nicki said...

wish I lived in a place that had a Faerie Festival! It sounds awesome! But how did they get the horn on that, um, unicorn? I'm traumatized because Diana told me that she went to a circus when she was a kid, and there was supposed to be a unicorn there, but it was a goat with a cardboard horn STAPLED onto it's head!!!

What a great idea for a festival. That looks like so much fun. My kids would have loved this. I really like the picture where Kayla looks like she is choosing a marker. So cute!

Katie said...

What a great idea for a festival! Even the "unicorn's" hoofs were glittery! And I don't know why, but the pics of her on the toadstool and at the tables with the markers made me tear up a bit. Is it hormones? Regardless, I am thrilled that she had such a great time. Big hugs to her.

Marci said...

I have to say that Kayla is the sweetest little fairy I have ever seen! And I can't believe Lucas is really walking around like that - where does the time go?

Tausha said...

Oh my gosh, that looks like so much fun. I love the East Coast and all the fun things it has to offer. I lived in Virginia for 6 years and really miss it. Looks like everyone had so much fun.
