Another Salazar Family Tradition: The Utah Arts Festival. We go every year and we usually skip church and go on a Sunday. This year we met Grammie Annie there and hung around with her.
First Aaron went over the rules with the kids; No talking to strangers, you always have a partner, if you get lost find someone in a uniform etc....

There were a lot of really great booths this year, I especially love the jewelry booths. Every jewelry booth we stopped at Piper would ask if they had any Amber(because her daddy was telling her about Amber on the way to the festival). Again, our friend Marla wasn't there, she wasn't at Living Traditions either, so we are hoping she will be at the Park City Arts Festival.

However.....NO FIRED PICKLES! I was so bitter, you don't understand how much I love fried pickles. So I got french fries. The kids got a slice of pizza from The Pie booth and Aaron got a Garlic Hamburger.

After we ate our lunch, we listened to this guy play an instrument that is sort of like a guitar, I can't remember the name of it, but it has 12 strings, and there are only 2,000 in the USA. Annie actually ended up buying two of the guys CD's. Piper really wanted one. She can just listen to Grammies.

I didn't get anything this year, I usually get something, and neither did Aaron. Teague didn't want anything (that worked out) and Piper got a tied eyed tank top. Grammie bought it for her. Piper and I were in the booth and she decided that was what she wanted and I told her that I didn't have any money (meaning Aaron had the cash in his wallet), so Piper went up to Grammie and said, "My mom needs some money." So Grammie came and bought it for her.

I am so proud of myself! I usually give in and let the kids get their faces painted, but I didn't this year, they always end up looking really crappy.

Unfortunately I wasn't feeling very good, so we didn't stay as long as we usually do. When we decided to go, Teague and I took a rest on the lawn while Aaron and Piper went and filled the water bottles.

It was a really good day.

I am sorry that I have all these posts on one day, but I have a really crappy sinus infection, I actually haven't got much of anything done. Except relaxing. My poor house!
