Time Machines and Leaf Pressing

On the Eleventh day of October, we were supposed to go on a hot air balloon ride, but due to blustery Autumn weather the rides were canceled.

So, we hiked it over to the local mall to look at Halloween decorations and found this...





We wanted to go back in time so badly and ride a T-rex, but the flux capacitor was blown. Go figure.

After our inability to travel through time in a suped up delorean, we came home and my lovely suggested we go on a walk and collect leaves to press. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them just yet, but they are pretty!







Afterwards I snuggled on the couch and read a few of Poe's short stories. Horror, murder, suspense? Perfect for the Halloween season.

  1. Sounds like you had a great day! Too funny to see the Delorian! I actually remember seeing that movie in the theater when I was 12...I'm ageing myself here!

  2. Those leaves are so pretty! I especially like the maple leaf one. :) I have a bit of a fall leaf obsession myself.

  4. Oooh...I want to do that leaf pressing. I did it in 4th grade after my granddad helped me find all these different leaves and identify them.

    They're so beautiful...
