Little Elves at the Festival

This morning, we took the kids to the Festival of Trees.  They loved it!  On weekdays, Festival opens an hour early for people with disabilities.  We were able to easily navigate Bertrand's wheelchair among the aisles, he had an unobstructed view, and he was able to enjoy many of the trees and bright lights before the doors opened to the public at 10am.

Once the crowds came in, the expo hall got too loud, so Bertrand closed his eyes and shut down.  His sensory issues aren't as bad as they once were, but he can still get overwhelmed.  He wasn't the only one.  Once the hall got really loud and busy, Victoria began to meltdown, and we had to leave.  Still, it was a wonderful morning to spend with family and friends.  :)

The Festival of Trees runs through tomorrow at 10 PM.  If you get a chance to go, it's great!

The kids' favorite tree.
