Spring LEAF 2007


This May, Michael, Graham, and I once again packed up almost the whole house and headed out to the Spring LEAF festival near Asheville in Black Mountain, NC.  After a particularly long season of special ed paperwork, it was a much needed trip!  We met up with our friends Chris, Tammy, Ben, and Noah and snagged a great camping spot on Thursday.  It was wonderful to get there early and have a little time to extra time to relax and enjoy the beauty of the festival site. 


Our friends Andy and Iris arrived on Friday and joined our campsite.  The weekend was filled with overall beautiful weather with just a little rain, great music, and lots of time to finally chill out.  My favorite part was watching Graham run around and have a blast.  He became particularly infatuated with our friend, Anna.  He has a thing for older women!  He is just such a people person and I love watching him talk and relate to others.  Friday night, he met a boy around the age of 5 and he had the best time running around with him and rolling down hills.  I have rarely heard him laugh so hard.  He was so tired by the time we went back to the tent that he couldn’t even walk! 


The other highlight was getting to spend some quality time with my friend Chris.  We ended up going out on a couple of nights by ourselves and listening to music and it was reminiscent of college days.  It just felt very carefree.  We laughed and people watched and Chris did lots of goofy things that make me crack up.  It was old school fantastic!  Since we’ve both had kids, we haven’t been able to have many times like those and it was great to have them again.  It was another fabulous LEAF weekend and we will be back for the Fall (if we are not in China that is).
