It was the Sunday prior to our departure from Boise sometime late October 2012. We visited the Farmers Market. Various produce were on display like cheese, wine,cookies,fruits,candies,lemonade,jams,syrups, ice creams,tacos,doughnuts,kettle corn, chocolates,paintings,mugs & bowls,elk meat etc. It was a bright and sunny day and there was a fair crowd out there. We sampled quite a few things on offer there particularly wine & cheese offerings. There was a nice circular water fountain and the kids were having fun. There were benches for senior citizens to relax, cycle stands to park cycles and water dispensers to quench your thirst. There were musicians to entertain the crowd. A homeless couple had also parked themselves there squatting on the floor with a placard stating "We are homeless. Please contribute what you can". The couple were in their thirties, were probably African Americans, and in apparently sound health. Overall a delightful morning well spent !

On the final Sunday before we departed Boise we visited the The Farmstead Corn Maze and Pumpkin Fall Festival. Activities there included pumpkin patch-pick in the field, pumpkin patch- already gathered from the field, Fall festival, train rides, corn maze, haunted corn maze, straw or hay bale maze, child-sized hay bale maze, corn cannon, tractor-pulled hay rides, wagon rides, haunted trail, snacks and refreshment stand, restrooms, picnic area. It was a fabulous day with good sun shine and we all had a really wonderful time. Here are some of the splendid pictures captured there. We were accompanied by a Spanish family. Their son Mattheus is around the same age as Mira and they had a great time together.
