A Fairy Lovely Day

 A few days ago I received a message from one of my favorite people (and the girls beloved yoga teacher) about the Portsmouth Fairy House Tour. She knows how much we adore fairies and gnomes in this family and was curious if we had ever been to this fairy house event before  (we hadn't). She was planning to attend the event so that she could have first hand knowledge of it for New England Fall Events (one of the fabulous autumn themed websites she puts together) and was hoping to get our take as well should we decide to go. Not being a family to pass up an adventure we packed a lunch (and the girls wings) and off we went.

 A family favorite. Grace and Emma especially liked this one. 
 Into the woods. 
 The bubble tower was incredible! We so need one of these!

 Her smile says it all!
 The fairy ballet. 
 As the Grande Finale all the girls in attendance were invited on stage. 
 Such a sweet fairy house. 
 My favorite fairy house. 
What a stellar event! Each fairy house was just incredible and no two were the same. We had such a lovely time wandering down the paths where the houses were and seeing each one as we passed by. Some we stopped to check out more closely and others we couldn't as there were simply too many people already gathered there. The girls especially loved the fairy ballet and getting to dance with the fairies before and after the show. We never did make it to the fairy face painting, and the other children's activities were pretty jam packed too. We definitely have plans to head back to this event again, but we also hope to head back to Portsmouth to spend more time visiting Strawberry Banke and the lovely gardens. Portsmouth is such a neat town, and I have to admit that I did find myself thinking that I could totally see the four of us enjoying living there. Thank you, Alexandra, for letting us know about the fairy house tour! We had such fun and are looking forward to heading back next year! xo
