Jazz + Pumpkin Picking


This Weekend, I had an amazing time with Christopher!! 

On Friday night, we watched the US barely win a world cup qualifier before heading to Cafe Capriccio for some lovely jazz music and yummy food.

Asparagus and Artichoke Ravioli
Jazz by Jd3 - excellent group!!
On Saturday, we picked a pumpkin from a nearby patch (which we later carved, but I'll save that for a separate post!).  Then, we headed to Vermont for some delicious hot apple cider and cider donuts before we hunted down a couple of covered bridges.
There were slim pickings, but we finally found a good one :)
This picture totally captures our lovely day in Vermont!
The Chiselville Bridge
The West Arlington Bridge
On Sunday, we had a busy day!  We went to church with friends at Loudonville Community Church and heard an awesome speaker, Dr. George Verwer.  Seriously, he was fantastic!  After church, we headed out to watch some football.  That turned out much better for Chris, the Jets fan, than it did for me, the sad angry bitter Bengals fan.  To cap off the day we went to see Taken 2.  We both enjoyed it.  Liam Neeson has a very particular set of skills...and he knows how to use them.  Truly a character.


I really couldn't have asked for more exciting and fun fall weekend.  Hope yours was just as great!

    1. Haha! Too funny! Just saw your pumpkin seed post. I wanted to do that with the seeds from ours, but we didn't have time. Maybe next year!

  6. Oh my! That Asparagus and Artichoke Ravioli looks delish! Now I have a craving ;)

    My family was suppose to go to a pumpkin patch last weekend, but we got rained out. We're hoping to get it in this weekend.

    Thanks for finding me on twitter. So happy to return the favor.
