rather than fight traffic and search aimlessly for parking, we took the train to Union Station!
then we only had to walk a few blocks to get to the park and all the fun goodness.
for a while we all stuck together, but there was so much to see and everyone had different interests so we spread out after a short time.
but we came together for fun tutorials, like this one at Sew LA's booth. we all made reusable fabric coffee cozies. Ashley used a sewing machine for the first time! (Kristen and I are in the background putting the final, finishing touches on our cozies.)
another favorite tutorial was these cute feathered hairpieces. on the return train trip, Michaela and I had fun pretending to be Indians!
we thought we should be serious for this one, but it was too silly.
Kristen and I each think that we have the best husband in the world - I know that I do, but sometimes I let Kristen think she's winning :)
