we had a little carnival at the castle down the street on saturday. (yes, we have a castle down the street. we still crack up when people are giving us directions and include "turn left at the castle gate!") anyway, a friend and her son that we've made at the library met us there and we spent a few hours watching a falconry display, seeing welsh clog dancing and listening to the beulah brass. we tried to walk up to the actual castle but didn't make it the whole way. the brass actually played some american favorites (o susanna, etc.) so that was fun for us. maggie really enjoyed dancing to the music. i think she thinks she's mary poppins!
