The "Dog"wood Festival

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!

We had such a great day! We started our morning by going out for breakfast. It was so nice not having to cook (or do dishes). Then we told Little Chick that we were going to the Dogwood Festival. This is a really nice event that has taken place here in Connecticut as far back as I can remember. In the car Little Chick said she could not wait to get to the "Dog" Festival. I told her that it was the Dogwood Festival, but she didn't care. She went on and on filled with excitement about the "Dog" Festival! It was the cutest thing!

When we arrived and saw all the tents and people Little Chick yelled, "The Dog Festival! The Dog Festival!" We bundled up (it has been ridiculously cold here) and started walking around. To my utmost surprise, what did I see, but dogs EVERYWHERE!! In all the thirty something years I have been coming to this affair I have never seen people with their dogs! Little Chick was smiling from ear to ear chasing after every four legged friend she saw and I was running right behind her saying, "Make sure you ask the owner if you can pet the dog." This went on the entire time we were there. Here are just a few of the many "dog" pictures I got. Little Chick must have greeted at least twenty of her furry friends.

It truly was the DOG FESTIVAL!

  12. Oh my goodness, she is just like me when I was little. My grandmother always had to chase after me once I set my sights on a furry friend. I love her!
