Fall Fest 2010

2010 October 29
by Sarah

Our good friends, Peter and Kim, host a wonderful party every October, which has come to be known as Fall Fest. This past weekend was the 5th annual Fall Fest, and Kim out did herself with the food once again. Friends start showing up at their door in the late afternoon and stay until the last log and embers have burned down in the fire pit. There’s football on the TV, cornhole in the backyard, lots and lots of good food, and much laughter and chitter chatter.

This year, Kim had a soup and salad buffet! Such a fabulous idea for a fall party, and well executed. We all got to rate the six different soups, though I never did hear which was most popular.

Pumpkin, Creamy Potato Cheese, Herb Beef

Country Sausage Chili, Tomato Bisque, Chicken Tortilla

I tried the chicken tortilla, pumpkin, creamy potato cheese, and country sausage chili. Personally, the chicken tortilla was my favorite, and I even went back for seconds.

Kim being very, well, Kim

We were blessed with a gorgeous sunset! It was the perfect crisp fall evening to be outside.

Once it got dark enough, the boys were excited to play Mario Kart on the big screen that Peter set up in the back yard.

Ivy wanted to get in on the cornhole action, but she had trouble trying to climb up the slippery board.

As if we hadn’t already stuffed ourselves silly with dinner, there was dessert too! Pumpkin pie, apple pie, and ice cream.

The lighting in the house was awkward for photos, but the fire pit made a fun subject.

    I had pumpkin soup a ton while in Australia. With a dollop of sour cream? OMG.

    I am a friend of Kim’s mom; she suggested I visit your blog. What fun things you do! Loved the fire pit pictures. And the food — I’ve gained a little just looking at it!

    Sarah, Thank you so much for taking pictures of Kim’s party. I would love to have been there, and seeing your pictures really helped me feel like I was able to enjoy it at a distance.
