Kids at a Crafts Fair
If you are like me, you might not think about bringing your toddler to a craft fair. My sister and I love to look for unique handmade jewelry. We ran over to check out a fair that was closing the weekend we arrived in New Hampshire.
The annual On the Green II Arts and Crafts Festival in Wolfeboro, NH had about 100 exhibitors. They were expecting about 10,000 people over the course of the weekend. It took place on the grounds of Brewster Academy at the center of town, on Lake Winnipesaukee.
I left Dek with his grandparents, assuming he would be bored to tears. I should have known better. There were kids and puppy dogs everywhere. Dek would have been in heaven.
Kids ran between the fudge man, kettle corn cart, ice cream truck and fresh-squeezed lemonade stand. I ran with them to the maple syrup guy who was giving out free samples of maple cotton candy. My sister didn’t think it was anything special. Happily she married a wonderful man who agreed with me that it tasted like toasted marshmallows. Delicious!
Next year, I won’t make the mistake of leaving Dek at the cabin. I’ll be bringing him along to join in all the fun. Then again, his grandparents are pretty darn fun too. Maybe I’ll just let him decide.
