You have drive a fair distance out of the city to find a pumpkin patch around here. We get a veg delivery every other week from an organic farm in the countryside and they have a fall festival that seemed like the perfect break from the city, and gave Julie a chance to see the English countryside.
There was all sorts of fun to be had. A live ukulele band, a giant plaster cow that you could milk, a football shoot-out, pumpkin carving, yummy soups and sausages, face painting, kids coloring, worm-digging. It was on the cold side, so it wasn’t quite the warm fall day I had dreamed of. But we had a good time and it’s always nice to breath some fresh air.
It’s hard to kick a goal with wellies on.

Richard and I are quickly learning that these outings always take longer than we think they will. And that is usually because of traffic. Driving 40 miles in Idaho would take 35 minutes.

BYU game- which was a sweet taste of home and reminded us all of Saturday football parties with the Birds.
