It's a blustery, bitter November weekend but we're taking care of that with some good old fashioned fun.
Friday night our family attended and volunteered at a fundraising celebration of local food, art and music. This harvest supper of seaonsal, locally grown food (you'd be amazed at how many ways you can prepare pumpkin and apple) was hosted by our favorite community organization, Lots to Gardens. I wish they had a rockin' website I could send you to, but I suppose they don't have time to do that since they're too busy helping downtown residents grow their own food and empowering youth to make a difference in their community.
We love these folks. They have hearts of gold with a desire to provide the disadvantaged of our community with access to affordable, healthy food. And they are amazing cooks - what a meal we had Friday. Not to mention the great local folk musicians and beatboxing rap artist.
Last night our family attended an outdoor adventure film festival in a neighboring community. We saw some great films, including two by local youths, on adventure in the outdoors. Who knew there was such a sport as Mountain Unicycling?? I was bagged after 3 hours (with an intermission) of watching but we were inspired once again, to try and figure out how we can experience adventure around the world as a family. (No, not on unicycles)
Today, we host 6 guests, plus three of our own, for a very-fairy-princess all things the glitter and sparkle birthday party for our youngest. Complete with fairy making crafts and a pink (beet juice dye) gluten free cake.
Oh, and there's The Nightmare Before Christmas that netflix sent earlier this week, we were thinking maybe tonight we'd watch that.
Now that's a weekend. What are you up to?
