I realized that we’re EEEEEK! halfway through September and to enjoy this loveliest of all seasons (Editor’s note: especially here in Utah, where we tend to enjoy two temperatures: Meat Locker and Sahara) we must plan! Our “must-do” is pumpkin picking at Black Island Farms, where they take you out on a tractor to get your own from the field–and then the kids play on the gigantic hay bale slides for the rest of the afternoon. Check their website–they usually have coupons up by now.
So, here we go.
