This was the view from our chairs. We didn't sit very close so we could get to the kids area easily. It didn't hurt to be this close to the food, either! (Or did it?)
Maralee did some of her own face painting.
Time to line up for the childrens' parade.
The pirates of Bluegrass.
Childrens' group picture.
I get most of my festival food at Sisters’ Pantry. I recommend everything there! The owners are super nice people from Boulder.
That's me with my mother-in-law, Barbara on my right. Check out the hula hooper behind me.
Savanna with a Chinese yo-yo.
These are the only close-up shots that I got. At Bluegrass they don't allow anyone to stand in front of the stage, you have to be walking through, so I would very quickly stop and take photos. These are the Drepung Monks from Tibet.
Vaasen from Sweden.
Here are a few shots of Brandi Carlile and her band. Her voice is as great live as it is recorded. Her song "The Story" is one of my favorite songs ever.
This was the crowd behind me during Brandi Carlile. It had been a long, warm day in the sun with all of these bodies baking. Word is that the town emptied out $5,000 (yes, that's $5,000.00) of quarters out of the town park showers. Great to hear that a good number of people were bathing this year!!
