Last Chance . . .

It snowed last week. Which makes some of you REALLY happy. There are a few weeks of fall left before we start skiing and shoveling snow and you have a few weekends left to enjoy some of the best fall activities in Utah:

OKTOBERFEST - SNOWBIRD
As you can see from this photo my family is German. When I was in junior high my parents went to Germany and brought home traditional German outfits for all 6 kids. That explains my dress. I have no explanation for my hair.
There are so many fashion "don'ts" in this photo I don't even know where to begin.

German heritage or not, you can enjoy a little bit of Germany at Snowbird this month. Oktoberfest runs every Saturday and Sunday through October 13 from 12-6. You can enjoy German music, food and beer. While you are there take a ride on the Mountain Flyer, the Alpine Slide, or head up on the Tram. The mountains are beautiful and Snowbird is a great place to enjoy the fall colors.

If you hike up to the tram the ride down is free (this is the only way we did it when I was growing up - 6 kids are expensive, and my dad is a cheapskate), but if you want to enjoy all the activities the cheapest way to go is to buy an all day pass at Costco.

FARMERS MARKET

The Salt Lake Farmers Market is one of my favorite Saturday morning activities and it is wrapping up. The market is located in Pioneer Park (300 South 300 West) and is open Tuesdays from 4 to dusk and Saturdays from 8 to 2. There is great, fresh produce and delicious artisan foods. I got the BEST red pepper dip there last week.

After you pick up some great food to cook at home you can walk across the street to Bruges and get some fries and a waffle. I know, you are thinking, "We are adults! We don't eat french fries." Believe me, you want to eat these fries. They are totally worth it. Read all about my obsession with them here. I strongly recommend the plain vanilla waffle (I am a purist) and the andalouse sauce with the fries.

Enjoy the last few weeks of fall!
