Najwa Attacked by a Dragon at the 17th Street Festival

Najwa and I took a trip down to 17th Street for its annual 17th Street Festival. With a ton of vendors and spanning a couple of blocks, Najwa really only wanted to do the moon bounce.

Eventually we started to make our way down the street. It was the Chinese music that caught our attention. Najwa wasn’t really interested in any of the vendors. Actually, I wasn’t either, but we decided to at least go to the end and back. It was hot and Najwa was half out of it when she was attacked by a dragon.

She did win a Frisbee at the Xfinity wheel spin and got a free snow cone from the local Masonic lodge, but it was really all about the moon bounce.
