Weekend Festival-going

Yay for the city of Derby, putting on a whole festival in honour of Connor's second birthday. ;) Friday Fire Garden walking (and trying not to get annoyed with the OTT health and safety people warning us where the fire was lol).

In town: Giant lobster, Troll's Kitchen, crafts and performers and people dressed as giant green insects. Rowan was very brave - from a distance - but her hands turned white gripping so tightly to my tshirt. She kept asking where the lobster had gone, though, she adored it!

The dragon was operated by lots of different wheels and levers and all the children helped. Rowan kept saying, "I want to say hello to the BE-A-OOOtiful dragon!" When we got close, it roared, and suddenly she was pulling away from me saying, "Want to move away from the beautiful dragon, want to move AWAY from the beautiful dragon!!"

We met up with my mum and Nareman (who had bought us jam tarts), and later my dad and middle brother (who bought us drinks).

And fireworks! We had been telling the children there *might not* be fireworks. When they started up, Rowan declared proudly, "I TELLED you there would be fireworks." :)
