It's officially Autumn/Fall on Thursday Sept 23, 2010! To me it means colorful leaves crunching underfoot while other still cling to trees for a colorfest show, bonfires and smores, pumpkins and hot tea, baskets of fresh pick apples, enjoying the outdoors....and festivals! What a perfect way to enjoy the outdoors! And it couldn't all come at a more fitting time, for Susan's Outdoor Wednesday.
The weather was perfect, so I invited my mother and my cousin Marc to take in Fort Payne's Boom Day Festival. We actually went for the bands (I have friends in a band that played so I went to support them) but I was happy to take in the other fun sites: a corvette car show, the food-including a BBQ cook off, and arts and crafts. And festivals are a perfect place to people watch....so if you are like me, you will enjoy looking, and documenting. I met such interesting characters and I always feel enlightened and blessed by getting to know new people. I always end up learning a lot...and not just about someone else, but myself too. The pictures below are from the festival, I hope you enjoy! I will share more about my friends from the band on Monday's post.
I invite you to link up *here* for Thrifty Thursday. Mr. McLinky will be up Wednesday evening. I am always happy to have you join in and cannot thank you enough for joining....and visiting the participants.
