Weather looks great this week, and we can finally start enjoying these fall temps with the bright blue skies above. My son broke his arm at football last week, so the season is over early for him. He got a cool red cast, though. There are lots of fun traditional fall festivals coming up this weekend - including Head of the Charles and the Fall Pumpkin Festival at Frog Pond and The Great Pumpkin Festival at the Ecotarium to name just a few.
