a week in the life : saturday~ fall festival
today was a sunnier fall day. i gathered a few packages together for a gift mission to some special women. on my way home i stopped at my neighbor's yard sale, a framed quilted piece of art caught my eye. i rounded the driveway to the next table she had laid out and then it saw it. a black suitcase with polaroid inscribed on it. from the large rectangular shape i immediately thought, could it be a land camera?!?! opened it and saw yes a polaroid 90 land camera complete with flash, 2 flash cubes, original manual, it was gorgeous. fearing some one else may be just as excited about such a find i scrounged my van and came up with $5 in change. so i came home with both treasures. oh how i love to thrift sale! made lunch and took the kids for a ride to the playground. when we drove by the middle school we found a fall festival and bake sale. all sales benefitting our elementary school. we delayed our playground trip while the kids gathered their picks of pumpkins and 2 pretty cupcakes for a treat. we sat in the leaves while they ate and then hit the school playground to run off some steam. home for afternoon naps (even daddy got a nap in with kellen). i made homemade mac-n-cheese and taylor's best friend joined us for dinner and a sleepover. finished the night with slices of yesterday's chocolate cake. it was a nice and easy fall saturday.
