A couple of weeks ago, the City of Conyers had its annual Cherry Blossom Festival at the Horse Park. My daughter was scheduled to dance in this event, and since the last spend-the-night with my niece had been cancelled due to sickness, we picked her up for the weekend and took her with us.
This was the first time I had ever attended the Cherry Blossom Festival. The Horse Park was filled with craft and food vendors as far as the eye could see. There were moonwalks and games and concerts. It was a beautiful, sunny day, and we were ready to enjoy it.
My daughter had to be on stage 2, so we headed there first. It was all the way to the back, so we passed many a booth on the way there. Since she wasn’t scheduled to dance for a little while, my niece, my husband, and I headed back to browse the crafts. There were so many wonderful things. My niece, of course, wanted it all. The requests to purchase things were never-ending. She knew we weren’t going to buy her things, and that spurred her requests on even more just to aggravate us. We just laughed and did our best to keep up with her.
We wandered around for quite some time, and then it was time for my daughter to dance.
Or so we thought. Actually, we still had to wait a few minutes. Since we had to wait, I went over to take photos of the cherry blossoms. My niece decided to follow, so I got some cute photos.
Then she decided to go sit back down with her uncle, and she stole his glasses.
Then it was time to watch some dancing. The girls danced beautifully.
And that was all for our Cherry Blossom Festival experience this year, but that was certainly not the end of the weekend. My niece spent the night again, so the next day, we had a tea (coffee) party. With every tea party, we must have cookies, so we made some chocolate chip cookies. Being an aspiring little entrepreneur, she decided to open a cafe and sell those cookies.
She was soon on the antique phone taking orders.
She took an order for some cookies, and it was going to take 100,000,000 hours to fill the order. Of course, we were curious, so we did the math. It was going to take over 11,000 years to fill that order. I guess we’ll just have to leave a prime directive for future generations for that one.
Soon, we made it to actually consuming our coffee and cookies.
And we were joined by some sock monkeys who came over for the party. Bogart and Noel were fun companions, and they loved the cookies.
All too soon, our weekend came to a close, and my niece had to return home. The dreaded school monster awaited her the next day. Soon, however, we will get to celebrate her birthday, and what fun that will be!
