Fall Is In The Air

Fall is in the air. I really enjoy the Fall season. I think it might be because Fall symbolizes change and I really enjoy change. There are only three things in my life that I do not like changed. They are 1. The presence of my family members on earth 2. The companionship of my husband 3. My membership in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Other then that I thrive on change. That's another reason that I don't just have one favorite season. My favorites are Spring and Fall. I love the holidays of Winter and the holidays of Summer. But the seasons themselves are not necessarily what I enjoy. However, I enjoy the Fall season.

We live in a very small community and with that comes the small town festivities. Sometimes the town themselves put on the events. Other times our church will sponsor the events and everyone in the town is invited. When Fall comes around we have our annual Fall Festival.

Yesterday we went to the Fall Festival at the LDS Stake Center in Moccasin. The scarecrow and cornstalk decorations along the road leading to the church were so inviting and set the stage perfectly. They had a wagon pulled by two little mules for the kids to ride in, an Ol' Ragtime band singing live, old fashion games like marbles and donuts on a stick, a Washbasin Train custom made for the kids, and an amazing roast beef and dutch oven potato dinner, topped off with a million different homemade cobblers for dessert.

I love this event because it is always so fun for the kids. But it is also a time where all of us as adults are able to gather and renew old friendships and strengthen the current ties we have. It is wonderful to have something that draws Everyone out. And Fall is just the beginning of the seasonal small town festivities we enjoy!

The following is a sldeshow of the fun we had at the festival.

I can't wait to live somewhere that has seasons and the different activities that come with each one!
