Great Fall Weekend

What a great weekend!  It all started with us going down to the Mack to watch the Cards game on Friday night.  We met up with Zipf and ran into a few other people who I knew while watching the Cards beat Milwaukee to gain the lead in the NLDS.

We woke up to a very busy day on Saturday.  We met Zipf and went down to Soulard for some shopping.  Stocked up on some great fruit and veggies so dinner this coming week.  After a quick shopping trip, Zipf and I volunteered for the GO! St. Louis 10k packet pick up.  We were the greeters and showed people where to go to get their bibs.  The race pick up was held in the Muny’s rehearsal room.  It was rather difficult to find and the park was a mess, but we finished up by 2:30.

Then it was off to Belleville to go apple picking.  We got to Eckerts by 4:30 and after waiting for a while we were off on the tractor to pick some apples.  After gathering enough apples we stopped at the Pumpkin Patch.  We managed to find a couple good pumpkins.

Our goodies

We stopped for dinner at Garvey’s in SoCo.  I finally had trashed buffalo wings!  They were great!  I think that will be the only way I’ll eat wings again!

Sunday was another busy day.  We did a little yard work to get the yard ready for the winter and pick up a bunch of leaves.  Then we headed over to St. Mary’s to visit my great-aunt, who is recovering from knee surgery.  After visiting with family, we headed home and made a couple dips to take to Zipf’s to watch the Cardinals clinch the NLCS! I loved watching the Brewers fans and their beast mode come to an end!

What a great weekend!  I’m now ready to go to Pierre Marquette to see if we can get some good fall pictures!
