Tea Town Fall Festival

Saturday was such a nice cool autumn day for the Tea Town Fall Festival. The boys were happy to be in the woods.


Joshua chose a simple ghost face painting...

Jacob picked an elaborate but very cool ninja warrior...

Lord of the flies?


A retired teacher named Peter, that Brett happened to know from his White Plains days, was doing a pond life study with microscopes... 


Poppy was really happy that his really cool wheel chair enabled him to get a good ways down the trail.


Jacob discovered this octopus root...


There were some tables set up with animal pelts and skulls for the kids to learn about animals you might find in the woods.



There were also some little fossil digs that the boys were fascinated by.


Jacob went nuts over the archery. Yes they were real arrows! 


Josh enjoyed it too and eventually even popped one of the balloons with minimal assistance.


They LOVED the zip line and went on it a number of times. Jacob paved the way by being the brave big brother.


Joshua entertained everyone in the near vicinity with his howls of joy.


Gigi enjoyed spending time with her grandsons...


We made nature pumpkins with rock eyes, red cabbage hair, and other natural accoutrements...


Gigi helped make some feathered walking sticks...


Joshua thought this wing measurement display was for measuring the walking sticks...


Jacob took his time making some other eco art with beans and wood slices...


There was some good live music near the food area and everyone that volunteered for the festival was very friendly! We would definitely like to go back next year
