Fall Treasures

Nature walks are perfect for collecting fall treasures.
The weather has been gorgeous.
This beauty of it all has really sunk in with me this year.
I appreciate all the colors and cooler crisp temperatures with warm sunshine.
We collected leaves of every size

DH and I have been working on our ditch waterway
creek placing large rocks and making it perty...ha!
The boys are loving it nonetheless!

Our buckets were full of treasures by the end

And with the spread, we made fall rubbings
talked about all the colors that we found
the reason why they change colors...
we tried the whole wax paper thing that I swear worked when 
I was a kid, but I'm gonna need to look that up again
because it was an epic fail!
