Celebrating fall with family

In the past 11 years, the region in Bosnia where I'm from has been celebrating fall with a big festival that involves roasting of chestnuts. My parents decided to uphold that tradition in their own backyard. What a fun way to spend time together! And if you've never had roasted chestnuts, you need to try. Yum!

All together

My sisters and I also raided my parents garden for some surprise harvest (strawberries and raspberries).

Love my family.

This was so much fun! We should do it more often, especially when your little sweet potato joins the family. :D
