Happy Harvest Days
We don't really do Halloween because we don't like all the garish ghoulish goings on, but we do like that Halloween is the gateway to the holiday season and so we use it as a time to get in the spirit of holidays to come and a celebration of harvest time.
Amilia and I attended a harvest festival yesterday where she had fun riding ponies and adopting a t-rex balloon animal. The whole family enjoyed the harvest fesstival at our co-op where there was local beer and pretzel tasting, as well as apple tasting and fresh pressed apple juice tasting. They used an old-fashioned cider press that was really calling to Mr. Nature. He has been talking about picking one up one of these days.
Tonight, we enjoyed ourselves over homemade gluten free pizza, family movie: Kung Fu Panda, and organic dark chocolate chips for dessert.
I hope you had a safe and enjoyable weekend.
