Wholesome Iowa weekend

A glimpse into our lame old married life: Satuday, Hubs and I took our bikes down a terrifying really awesome hill to ride along Beavr Creek and the Des Moines River.

Ain't we dashing?

This is where water belongs, not in our basement.

Along the way, we spotted this sweet little duck party barge. A thatched roof and party lights? PLUS astroturf? Color me jealous.

After our ride, we headed to Wills Family Orchard to pick up some organic pumpkins and apples.
The orchard was between varieties, so we were only able to pick our own pumpkins. And we picked some winners.

We snacked on an apple with homemade caramel and watched a chainsaw demonstration. You know, the usual.

How was your first weekend of October? Do anything autumnish?


  1. Had a great time doing the Farm Crawl on Sunday. Went to the farms that sell at the DSM Downtown Farmer's Market. Tasted and bought a lot of good foods. Beautiful Iowa country side in the Fall on a great weather day. Will be going again next year. www.farmcrawl.com

  2. That looks like a great time! I'll have to check it out next time.
