We went to the Joliet Fairy Festival. The girls had a really good time. They got to wear wings, make wands, attend fairy school, and fairy story time. They also got to practice their flying in the bounce houses. We end the day riding in the horse drawn Cinderella carriage. Although I felt it was wildly over priced the girls did enjoy it. However I won't be going back in future years. Instead we will probably plan our own princess & fairy day and invite friends over to make these crafty items ourselves and maybe even chip in on a bounce house. Until then, please enjoy these photos we took. I am thinking the Lucy WOTG would be perfect!

We made little flowers in pots and painted them as a symbol of taking care of our Earth.

Practice with wands before we got our real ones...
This huge one was cool and made giant clusters of bubbles
Lily wasn't sure what to make of it all
Finally we got to make our own wands.
Grandma of course helped us.
