Grand Prize: Dance Till You Drop
Caption: "Jack (18 months) celebrates his first camping trip and music festival at Northwest String Summit! He had such a great time dancing and chasing bubbles that he ended up napping in his wagon."
Jack, you really know how to live. Dancing and chasing bubbles until you fall asleep in a big yellow wagon sounds like the perfect day. It certainly made for a perfectly adorable picture.
