Mormons: We Like To ‘Kick It, Old School’

Every year a friend of the family holds a Fall Festival on their farm – open to anyone.

People bring, chili, stew, chowders and cornbread. The barn wall is lined on one side with crock-pots, dutch ovens and large silver pots.

I look forward to the yummy food!

Usually Dan anchors the winning side. But out of four matches, including trading sides…it was a draw.

Everyone wins!

I always get car sick driving out to the farm, but it’s totally worth it!

The food, friends and crisp fall air makes me feel alright.

It was pretty cold this year! Good thing I crocheted a new headband the night before.

This was the second time we attended the Fall Festival since we moved here.

Time flies.

Six months of sleepless nights under my belt here!

I’m a lucky girl.

What?
What?

Only time will tell.

  1. I love the October Fest! Sometimes I almost think it’s better than Christmas 😛 I always have so much fun with all of my friends and family! I have so much to grateful for!
