Fall Family Fun

Beautiful day at Schuh Farms, Mt Vernon, Wa

A lovely Saturday to go join the District 4 Old Time Fiddlers to play out for the Schuh Farms October event. We got there early to figure out where to set up. Our young friend made friends with the kids at the Skagit Dog 4-H booth helping them color their poster.

Dog 4-H new friends

Of course we talked about homeschooling! Making learning fun and school gets done. One thing I like to remind parents is to maintain your sense of humor. Do not take what your kids say and do personally. This too will pass. Dogs are such a fun way to learn!

Setting up to play

We took turns choosing songs to play or sing. A good time was had by all!

Kettle corn to share with the band

They had a corn maze with a map. We had a fun time looking for the answers to questions on our map. It was a dusty day for our shoes. If you go when it is wet, wearing boots is a very good idea.

Fun tractor ride
Many photo opportunities

There are lots of good, fresh baked goods, freshly picked apples, peaches, strawberries and lots of varieties of squash, pumpkins, garlic, onions and flowers. So many things to see! I made a delicious fresh fruit salad and a tossed salad for our dinner. The potato herbed bread was a winner too!

Sorbet is a winner

Fresh Fruit Salad – wash fruit first.

This is what I did. I took one very large apple – slice and cut out the core. Cut up slices into bite size pieces. Cut up one large peach in to bite size pieces. Slice strawberries into bite size pieces. Toss everything together with the blueberries. Can use whip cream on top to garnish but is delicious as is! Serve 4 people.

What are some things you like to do in the fall? What are some of your favorite recipes? The flavors remind me to “Taste and see that the LORD, He is good. “ https://www.biblestudytools.com/psalms/passage/?q=psalms+34:8-14
