Our market day had a little surprise: rain! It was fun walking around the farmer’s market with Bracken in the rain and getting soaking wet. There were people in tank tops and shorts saying “I wasn’t expecting this!” Once we went back to our booth to warm up and dry out a bit, we discovered our tarp (the roof of our booth) is in worse shape than we thought. It was leaking everywhere and there was hardly a place to sit without getting soaked. So Jeff sat in the one dry spot he could find and Bracken and I headed over to the coffee shop for a bit. After being in there for awhile, we came out with a warm peppermint tea and the rain had stopped. I think Bracken’s highlight of the day was the performance at the market stage. At the last Holiday Market Bracken saw a dancer balancing a candle on her head. (I mentioned it briefly in this post.) So, ever since he has been pretty obsessed with balancing things on his head. Sometimes he dances while he does so and tell us whatever is on his head at the time is a candle. On Saturday there were some belly dance performances and one of the dancers balanced a sword on her head. You can imagine how much Bracken enjoyed that. You should have seen the look on his face while he watched, completely mesmerized. Our friend Kim mentioned the fact that he said the word “Wow” over and over, throughout the entire dance. That pretty much summed up how he felt about it. I’ve never heard him say that word so many times in my life. As soon as we went back to the booth, Jeff heard all about it.
