Franklin Fall Festival 2008

On Saturday, we went downtown Franklin to the Franklin Fall Festival. There were a lot of fun things going on, and we had a great morning.

Elaina immediately spotted the street that was blocked off to host the dance and gymnastic teams from the area. She was so excited and loved every minute of it. She has become quite the little interpretive dancer/gymnast/ballerina around here lately. She didn't take her eyes off of all the girls performing. We would start to leave, and she would say, "Wait! There's one more t(c)omin'!" She replaces the "c" sound with the "t" sound a lot.

J.P. Parker is a floral company here in town with locally grown flowers, and I LOVE the sunflowers that they get in every year at this time. I never buy any for myself (and neither does my husband! :) ), so I was so excited when I looked down the street and saw that they were giving them away for FREE! It was so beautiful, and I wish that I had taken a picture of it. There were containers all through the middle of the street filled with beautiful sunflowers. It was gorgeous!

Next, we painted pumpkins, and that was free, too! It was so much fun. The girls each picked a pumpkin and painted it. They did such a great job!

We stopped by our church booth, too, and got balloons, cookies, and popcorn. The girls had a ball with their balloons.

We had such a great morning, and the weather was beautiful, too! We love our Saturdays together!
