Well, since our time in Utah is rapidly coming to a close, maybe it’s time to talk a little bit about what we’ve done since we’ve been here.
OK, besides that.
Logan’s parents came to visit us back in mid-October, and we drove down into Salt Lake City with them for a bit of autumnal fun. First up: The Salt Lake City farmers’ market! I’d heard that this market was incredible, and was super stoked to check it out.
Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! And greens, and baked goods, and beautiful mushrooms, and gorgeous apples, and delicious coffee, and and and.
Somehow, even though this was October, it was still raspberry season! Ami demolished most of a pint by herself.
There was even an arts and crafts fair happening concurrently in the same park! And there was a playground, for when Ami and Pa got tired of shopping (which happened pretty quickly).
Then, we were off for a visit to the pumpkin patch at Wheeler Historic Farm. During the month of October, the farm puts on a huge shindig with a hay-bale maze, pumpkin patch, hayrides, and a tractor ride in a train of little cars shaped like cows. Lots of fun for the whole family, right?
And we got five pumpkins, and the opportunity to clamber around on an old truck and some hay bales.
There’s a terrific playground right near the farm, as well as a lovely walk, gardens to explore, a cow milking shed, livestock to see, and original buildings to tour. The place is well worth a visit if you find yourself in the area.
Next up: Heber City and Bridal Veil Falls!
