Erin and I decided to tackle Rhinebeck this year with two little girls in tow.
One of whom was mine.
We had a fantastic time seeing friends. eating food, looking at animals (not something I choose to do but something the girl enjoyed) and checking out other people's handknits. I brought my camera both days but took only a few pictures. And my kid is in most of them.
So here's just a few
Look at all those lovely people! And I met so many more that I knew from online but had never met in person. And I missed out on taking their pictures.
I was a bit distracted.
(please, god, send me more sugar)
(for the love of god, why is this woman talking when there's a BOUNCY CASTLE?!!?)
(didn't she bribe me with the promise of baby goats? where are they? not in this barn full of yarn I can tell you that much)
I did buy some vintage buttons but no yarn. I bought A LOT of food.
The girls had a fantastic time together. Staying up late in a hotel room is heaven when you're 5. And yes, she did get to commune with the animals whilst I stood awkwardly nearby.
And she did eat her fair share of sugar and processed meat.
All in all, Rhinebeck success, happy memories and happy planning for next year.
