:: fun festival day ::

We had a fun day over the weekend at a local festival, even though it rained a bit (thank goodness we took an umbrella!)

Claire was fascinated with the exhibit set up by the US Marines! We spent a while there so she could climb in the Hummers and look at all the weapons.

Both the girls also really enjoyed the petting zoo's cute and friendly animals...

Another really fun highlight of the day was meeting Lisa of ellembee, she is a graphic designer with a hand printed clothing shop on etsy! She travelled all the way here from Michigan! I already had a hoodie from her from last fall, which I just love, and I ended up with a new tee from her beautiful booth in the craft booth section of the festival.

Go check out her shop, you might find something to freshen up your fall wardrobe!

There's nothing like a fall festival to kick off the season. My girls love petting zoos..so do I! My girls are also fascinated by weapons. We paid a visit to the Battleship in Wilmington NC that sparked an interest in torpedos and big guns!
