DC VegFest 2012

DC VegFest was this weekend!  I wait all year for this one day festival of a celebration of all things veggie in the DC/MD/VA area (and even some from farther away)! It had a new location, tons of new vendors, great speakers and beautiful, sunny weather.  It was great to see so many vegans, vegetarians, veg-friendly folks and curious omnivores in one place!

Beautiful baked goods from Vegan Treats

Yards Park, the new location for DC Vegfest, had some beautiful views.  It was also nice to be able to get away from the crowds for a bit to have some lunch by the water!

Posing with the DC VegFest carrot!

Jesse trying loads of delicious vegan food.  I think this was Jamaican.  I had a delicious lunch from Dama Ethiopian restaurant. There was so much to choose from!

This beautiful guy or girl was up for adoption!  We so wish we could've taken him/her home with us!

We already can't wait for next year!

2012 Walk for Farm Animals

This past weekend we participated in the 2012 Walk for Farm Animals to benefit the work of Farm Sanctuary.  It was absolutely perfect weather and we had such a good time!

 Jesse posing in front of the Washington Monument before the walk.

Someone brought their pet pig to the walk.

Mid-walk:  Love this picture of the cow and pig with the Capitol building in the background.

 Posing with the mascots!

At the end of the walk, we were treated to a talk by Gene Baur, the founder of Farm Sanctuary.  The bottom line of his talk?  Go vegan!
