We stopped by the Festival during setup, and the first thing I saw when we walked in the door was Fiona's library down the hall. (The gold paint on the book spines catches the light.) That was a fun surprise! I went back the next day and got some pictures.
I hear they had quite a time getting it into this room. It's taller than the doorway.
The festival is always gorgeous and they do such a great job putting everything together.

We went back in the evening for the Messiah sing-along. We really enjoyed it last year, but we had to take turns sitting with Kate and watching Andy back in the childrens' room. This year we took Andy over to the McGiffins' house (thanks Mary!) so we could enjoy the singing together. And the alto and tenor sections were right next to each other, so we even got to sit together. (Yay!) Kate was drawing dragons in her notebook the entire time, but I think she enjoyed the music. It is amazing and stirring--and I had somebody sitting behind me who knew the part really well, so that was a big help!
