We Woke Up the Earth!
Every year, JP has a Wake Up the Earth Festival (organized by Spontaneous Celebrations~ link). We've gone to the festival in years past, but this was the first year that all four participated in the parade. Cory walked with Orange who did stilts (she just started learning them a couple of weeks ago but she's already quite good!) with the Spontaneous crew and Ocean and I walked with the dragons. I "upcycled" Orange's old "purple sea urchin" costume, transforming it into a "prickly rainbow dragon." Not only did Ocean walk the whole parade without complaint (and it was quite long, maybe 2 miles), but she won the prize for "best kids costume" so we have gift certificates for and t-shirts from City Feed. It was a really fun, fun day and I'm looking forward to doing it again next year!
