We’re no strangers to Atlanta arts festivals, but this weekend we went to the same one two days in a row. A first (I think).
The Grant Park Summer Shade festival is one of my favorite Atl festivals. It’s very kid-friendly, there’s affordable art, parking is easy enough and most of all, it’s shaded.
On Saturday, we met up with our friends Jamie and Dave for a couple of hours in the park.
Beer was had.
Sticks were played with.
All that beer drinking and stick holding didn’t leave room for much art looking, so we went back on Sunday. Same family, different clothes. Though truth be told, I was wearing the same shorts.
This maybe would have been a cute picture if the side of the stroller wasn’t jabbing me in the face. Somehow I didn’t notice this at the time. Blame the beer in the grass.
Somehow we still didn’t look at much art, though we did do some swinging.
and some kids sensory-tabling…
And watched some kids music, where Alexander couldn’t really decide if he liked it or if it was terrifying.
We’ve pretty much gone to this festival every single year and I don’t see that changing any time soon. The summer is ending, which is a little sad, but also a little nice.
This year vs. last year. Now we have to take this picture every year.
