A weekend of Fall fun...

We had a wonderful, and yet very busy weekend here.
Amaija had the wonderful idea of a having a "Paper Art Fair", and as the weather was rainy, it took place inside. Wesley and Claire's wee ones came over (they took the opportunity to go to a concert, a few miles away).
On Sunday it was so lovely out, we took a nice walk through the State Forest, not too far from us.
"But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:"

Ephesians 2:4-6
"That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."
Colossians 2:2-3

Now, to get down.

The little ladies.

The path ahead of us.

The little girls run on ahead.

We found a little toad, in the path.

Catching up to the rest...

More tree leaves.


We found a bunch of apple trees...

and of course had to pick them!

Apple Art.

The sky was so pretty.

The littlest one got tired, and got a ride from her big sis.

Watching everyone jumping over a great big puddle that was in the path!

Down the hill, to the van...

"The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say."


The Paper Art Fair begins.

Paper flowers.

Paper art.


Window Art.

Making little pizzas...to go with Root Beer Floats.


And later there were cookies for dessert.
