We got all ready and got in the car. But like two seconds into driving, Jason admitted that he thought Brigham Young's house sounded kind of boring. Well, I didn't want to go if he didn't want to go, and so we tried to figure out what else to do.
So, we were driving down the street, now destination-less, and trying to decide what to do. When we saw...a festival! With tons of people! And lots of white tents!
It was the St. George Art Festival! (Which we'd never heard of before right then.) Perfect! We circled around until we found some parking, hopped out of the car, and made our way to the festival. It was in the middle of the historic part of St. George, in between the library, art building, and St. George Tabernacle. The park (and I didn't know this, and it is SO cool) has these water features that kids can play in. It's basically a mini-water park that you can just go hop in. How sweet is that? We're totally coming back to play with Ellie once we get her a swimsuit.
We saw lots of cool stuff, including the Dowdle Folk Art guy! He's the one who makes all those cool puzzles. I wanted to get a picture with him, but I was embarrassed because that was dorky, so I just got this creepy stalker picture of his stall instead. Problem solved.
|This was a MOOSE made of METAL! He had metal muscles and a furry metal bum.|
Actually, on second thought, this is probably an elk. See the antlers?
Yup. just googled it. Definitely an elk.
Since we were right there, we also went to the St. George Tabernacle. They were giving tours, but none were starting right away so we just walked around inside by ourselves. It was cool.

|These stairs were crazy steep! They even had a sign.|
