Mississippi Street Fair

I just love this time of the year, when the everyone in Portland comes out of their rain-induced habitation and really enjoys the city.

Last weekend we headed to Mississippi for the annual street fair. Super Why came along and garnered quite a bit of attention.

He’s a super hero with the power to read.

The best thing about the street fair – the colour.

And the adorable hand-made little girl clothes that make me want to dress my boys up for the heck of it. Of course I already have trouble getting Thomas to wear anything other than sweat pants.

And the eclectic little shops with an assortment of antique and quirky goods that I love to look at, but am not funky enough to buy. I swear I had a pram just like this one when I was a little girl. I wonder what happened to it…

And the snow cones are a hit…until they make your hands too cold.

But the family time is clearly the very best part.


  1. Great photos! (I especially like the closeup of the superhero kid) I really hope that the paint is washed off easily – otherwise there’ll be one unhappy car owner 🙂

  2. I really like the 3rd shot with the painted car wheel, and the expression of your boy in the 9th, with the snow cone. Nicely & seemingly casually done on both accounts.
