What a great day we had. The weather was glorious.

First we got ready for the day, including some good chicken bonding time. Look how well their feathers are coming in.

This bird cracks me up. A lot.
Then we went into town to a Powwow. It was awesome. I love all the outfits. If I were to make one I'd have so much fun working on it for hours on end. It really made me miss my friend James from Albuquerque, a lot. He loved dancing. Pow wows were always very exciting times. One of the guys there today had a dancing style similar to James'.

Liam was quite taken by this guy's face paint. He was very intimidating.
(sorry for the blurry pictures)

Notice his little guy at his side. The kids there were absolutely adorable, and having such a good time.


This is not a great picture, but I love the woman's smiling face (toward the middle).

Liam couldn't pass up this souvenir. Yes, it is a skunk pelt. He likes to stick his arm inside and use it like a puppet. Boys! :)
Later - my other boys coming to see me.

And even later the adults colored eggs while the kids sat around. How backward is that?
I got the chicks out - thought it might inspire them.

What Easter basket is complete without a dead skunk?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Some of those dancers look like the ones at the Pow Wow at Riverfront Park last summer. I was absolutely intrigued by some of the constumes and awestruck by some of the womens. So beautiful.
