A special family night out:
One month ago I caught news of a magical night I simply HAD to take part in, and although my initial thought was to get away and have a fun date night with Keith, I knew the boys would love it so much too.
Similiar to my favorite scene from Disney's Tangled, Lantern Fest is still fresh in my mind. One of the most magical, beautiful and surreal moments and I'm beyond thankful to have brought the boys along!
Once we checked in, received our "kits" (lanterns, markers, lighters, graham crackers and marshmallows) we found a nice group to share a campfire with and set off to take in the surroundings. We tracked down dinner, chocolate bars for s'more making and settled in together to enjoy the night. In the middle of world frights left and right it was beyond refreshing to see SO many people SO happy! Seriously; every single person had a smile on their face. We all sang, danced, people were chasing lanterns, laughing and I saw some of the most outstanding art in the most unexpected ways. From the overall view, remarkable silhouettes, expanding to the drawings individuals put on their lanterns, it was ah-mazing!
The festival travels all over-and has my top recommendations to friends and family.
