Weekends: VegFest, Tie Dye and a Fairy Trail!

August 22, 2016

I hope you had a nice weekend!

Remember when I said we were trying to make the most out of the rest of the summer? Well this weekend we did just that! We had no plans on Friday night but woke up Saturdaymorning with our heads full of fun ideas!

 


Going back to Friday, I had my favorite smoothie at Whole Foods. Unfortunately, they probably won't have it much longer since it's a Summer special but it's passionfruit, mango, coconut milk and coconut flakes. So good!

 

 
On Friday night I made pizzas. We had an assortment. Mine was on a brown rice tortilla, Little A made her own on a pita and T had his on a spelt wrap. We used Miyokos cashew cheese and veggies from the garden.

 
For dessert we had these awesome treats from Better Bites that I picked up at Whole Foods, they are vegan, gluten free and amazing!

On Saturday morning, we realized there was a VegFest in PA, only an hour away from us. So we headed there. The weather was pretty hot so I think some of the vendors backed out because they said there would be 150 vendors and there definitely was not! Although a great set up and turnout, this was nothing like the one in NYC and we were pretty disappointed.

 
I had gluten free falafel from Taza Food Truck. They were so good, but I needed more! ;)

 
T and Little A had hotdogs that happened to be Field Roast.

 


The lines for food were really long and Baby S and Little A weren't happy in the heat so we walked around, I got myself these cool pants for $15 and a crystal, and then we left!

 
When we got home, we grilled up some veggie burgers and played outside. T picked up some sparklers in PA.

 

 
T thought of the idea that we would do tie dye shirts this weekend, so we went to Michaels craft store and bought a kit and white tshirts for each of us. I had a white onesie at home for Baby S. On Sunday morning, we did our shirts and by Sunday night they were finished and came out really nice! I think Little A's looked the best.


After that, we headed to a nearby Fairy Trail that I had heard about. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Such a fun little hike! It was about 2.5 miles of different fairy houses that people create in the woods. Anyone can create one but there are a few rules including "no plastic" so basically the house should be made with stuff in nature. Maybe we will make some stuff at home and bring it to make our own one day. It was so charming and magical!  Little A was in her glory, it was such a beautiful time for all of us.

 

Here is a short clip of some of the fairy houses on the trail.

 


For dinner, I made a pot of vegan chili (recipe later this week), along with gluten free vegan corn muffins. I used Bob's Redmill for them.

This was a perfect Summer weekend! I wish it didn't have to end! Until next weekend! XO
