Crisp mornings

Have I mentioned that fall is my favorite time of year? OK, so you may hear me say it again. :) The weather this morning was absolutely perfect. It was about 50 degrees (perfect sweater weather), the sun was shining and the leaves are starting to turn colors. After all the rain we had at the end of last week, I was ready for that sun. :)
.
We had a glorious weekend. Due to all the rain last week the girls soccer games were cancelled on Saturday. I absolutely LOVE watching them play but I have to admit it was kind of nice having the morning off. We slept in, the girls played and read a lot (thanks to the read-a-thon). That afternoon we decided to take the girls to a multicultural festival that was going on in town.
.
I have a hard time passing up such a beautiful backdrop. :)

.
The girls got to do lots of different crafts: making clay bowls


.
paper flowers and bead bracelets.

.
What is a festival without face painting?

.
They also had a stage where we heard different types of music along with various types of ethnic dancers. The perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
.
On the way home we ran a couple of errands and then caught the afternoon matinee of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. I have loved this book since I used it with my second grade classes years ago. It has been a favorite with my girls as well. I highly recommend that you see it if you haven't. Very cute movie, even if it diverges from the book quite a bit.
.
Finally I have a quick mini album to share with you. I saw this bracket book a few months ago and thought it would make a cute purse. I few weeks ago I shared the sweet coupons my girls made for me for my birthday in this post. I decided to use this mini album to hold the coupons that the girls made.

You can find all supplies for this mini album on the Emma's Paperie blog.

Have a fabulous week and thanks for stopping by!
