Applefest

Hi ~ I know I said I wouldn't be back until tomorrow but the hubby & the kiddo are gone so I thought I'd sneak a quick blog post! :O)

Today has been absolutely gorgeous! A warm sunny fall day ~ although this morning it was a lil chilly & cloudy but it turned out to be great.  The hubby & I took Cody & Princess to the Applefest this morning.  The kids had a blast.  It was a small lil festival @ our local orchard ~they had a petting zoo,a couple mazes, pony rides, wagon rides, & a "corn box" for the kids to play in.  Both kiddos got to ride a horse for the first time today.  They both were very brave & very amused!  We had a lot of fun & came home with a couple of pumpkins too! lol

Here's a few pictures of our day:




 i just really loved the look of this old silo 

Princess on her pony

Cody on his pony

the wagon ride took you around the orchard

just look how cute they are! (i might be a lil partial ;o) tho)

just look @ this neat grain bin ~ i love it!

I'm off to work on my cabinet some more & a few other "redos" I'm working on while the boys are gone. Enjoy your evening!

Oh Rachel, Looks like such a fun place to visit. Would love to have gone on that hay ride thru the orchard. I love hay rides. Mr. P and I have been married 38 years and I have a baggie full of hay from the very first hay ride we went on with our church. I was in 6th grade, and my Mister held my hand for the first time. Okay, I know enough mushy stuff.*giggle*
Princess and Cody are too cute. Looks like they had fun on those ponies. Can't wait to see your cabinet. Hope you have a super Sunday. Take care
