We did a few fun things while they were here. We went to a Basel Soccer Game, and we had a blast. I had no idea that Basel could be so rowdy! Soccer is something they definitely care about. We lucked out with the weather and even had some warm sun during the game.
The weekend they returned from Prague we took them to our Herbstmesse festivities for two days. They were here during this fall festival last year, and really enjoyed the food, so they were glad to have a chance to do it again. The food is SO GOOD. It is one of my favorite things in Basel. IT is right around Halloween time, and such a nice replacement for that holiday (not my favorite). Rides, food, fun - can't beat it. It draws over 1 million people a year, but I don't even mind the crowds.
My mom also taught me how to make pie crust from scratch. This is something I have not been able to find over here - pie isn't really a thing. But we love to have pumpkin pie and even apple pie around the holidays, so while she was here, we made two pumpkin pies to enjoy.
It is always great having family visit and their time with us always ends way too soon. But we will see my parents again in a few months.
