Our departure for Guadalajara has been pushed up from October 2014 to August 2014. This is mostly a good thing. The original date would have created a long gap that we would have had to fill with temporary assignments and, well, thumb twiddling. This way, we’ll go straight from Spanish training to post.

Like I said, it’s a good thing, but… I can’t help but be a little sad that we’ll miss another American fall. Apple picking and crisp weather and Halloween costumes and pumpkin flavored everything. Which means we plan to take full advantage of fall this year.

So tell me… what are you favorite autumn activities, especially in the DC area?

    I haven’t been, but the fall festival at Cox Farm looks fun. Also, the town of Vienna is having a little Oktoberfest on Oct. 5. Again, I haven’t been, but I hear good things about Vienna’s events; I think my little family is going to check it out. Enjoy soaking it all up!

    We were at Cox Farms this weekend (yes, in the heat). I had never done the area pumpkin patch thing, and this one was amazing. Huge, could have spent the entire day there. Plenty for the very littles. I think it was the heat or something keeping people home because there were barely lines for anything and it wasn’t very crowded at all.
