The festival and the kitty.

July 27, 2009

During Brian’s 4-DAY WEEKEND (!!) we did tons of stuff together as a family. One of the highlights for Ruby was walking around the “festival.” Bele Chere was crowded, but we had fun watching her people watch. Her favorite part, which was completely un-festival-related, was the little kitty she found under a vendor’s table. Here’s some pretty uneventful pictures of our eventful day:

At breakfast before the festival started...don't mind the smudge, it's a kid-print.

Mommy! Daddy! There's a kitty under here!

Mommy! Daddy! There's a kitty under here!

I want to hold it!

I want to hold it!

Hooray! Look at this little kitty!

Hooray! Look at this little kitty!

After thought: I can’t believe I forgot to include this story…

So, after breakfast and before we ventured out to the festival, we stopped at the restaurant to do some touch-up painting. While both Brian and I were occupied, Ruby took Brian’s keys and locked herself in the wine room. About 15 minutes later we finally found her, and had no way to get her out!! After removing a stair to try to get to the trap door, which was unreachable, and after trying to use the bobby pins in my pocket to turn the lock,we decided we couldn’t do it on our own. Thankfully Ashley had an extra key, and drove it over from his house. Brian had to run a mile to meet him (all roads were closed due to festival activities – how convenient!). Ruby cried and cried and stared at me through the window, begging me to let her out. I wanted to cry myself. She kept screaming “Nigh Nigh!!!” as if her saying she’d go to bed might get me to let her out. I was heartbroken. Finally, an hour later, poor Ruby was released from her prison with Ashley’s key that Brian ran 2 miles for. She was so beside herself that she barely even noticed she was free!

It was quite the day…we are pretty sure she’ll never step foot in the wine room ever again!
