Fallish Festivus

3 Comments

Everyone’s putting up their pumpkin patch/fall/Halloween pictures…. why not me?
I think fall has been the most beautiful season we’ve experienced here so far. As our friend Claire said, “The light’s just perfect, in a way it isn’t any other time of year.”

And the cold is finally justified.

Halloween’s just not a thing here, but one random farmer in some little village outside Prague knows that if he lays his pumpkins in the grass, adds some gourds & maize, and throws in a handful of farm animals, that the expats will come running.

And we did. A sweet little taste of America.

We brought home pumpkins to eat, pumpkins to carve & pumpkins to look at.


No canned pumpkin puree in the ole’ CZ, so we did it the old fashioned way.
Scooped-out pumpkin guts + water = a tactile wonderland.

Our findings from a treasure walk.

Foard enjoying his first coherent football season with David. I think they were flipping back & forth between the Tigers & the Dawgs.

I took the boys on a mid-week mini hike near our house.
Once you get the castles out of sight, it feels like you’re in the north Georgia mountains!


Later Sam found some discarded [chicken] eggs near a grocery store and asked if they were the ones from this nest. Maybe, Buddy, maybe.


“ummm.. guys… if someone would just stuff a granola bar in my mouth, that would be great…. I can’t really move here… guys? guys?”
