I had such a great day today! I slept in this morning because I was up half the night last night. It felt good to sleep in. After a leisurely morning (not so much leisurely as slow starting), we packed up and drove to Butte. Why Butte? There's not much of interest in Butte but a giant pit of poison. Yes, but this weekend Butte is hosting the National Folk Festival!
We got to Butte just in time to find a parking place, a schedule, and a sliver of grass to sit on to hear Bua, a really fun and lively Celtic band. Loved it! I was especially excited to hear them because I won one of their albums last week on KUFM (LOVE public radio!). After Bua, we wondered around, bought food, found an outback (portable outhouse), ran in to friends, chatted in the street, and found where Bua was playing again. It rained pretty hard and we were unprepared for that but we still had a blast.
Luken was excited about the "big bus!" so we rode the shuttle bus around it's loop. We looked at all sorts of neat art and vendors and heard more music. We finished the day happy and tired and got to follow the most spectacular sunset the entire way home. Yay for a great day!
