How was your weekend? Everyone always asks on Monday's, don't they? The standard response is "Good! How was yours?" - am I right?? Normally conversation moves on from there. This morning a co-worker asked me how my weekend was and I said "Festive! I'm ready for the holidays". This sparked more of a conversation about what I did and recommendations for his family! I love sharing fun places and sharing ideas for busy families that fall into the same yearly rut of wanting to do things but then don't.
A girlfriend of mine and I decided we wanted to do something fun Saturday so we loaded up our kiddo's and headed to Cider Hill. This just happens to be the place that Scott and I got married so I enjoy visiting. They have a pumpkin patch, duck feeding, swing sets, hay ride & yummy snacks! Our girls loved it and so did we! We got the chance to just hang out and let the girls run. Their cider slushies (for just a $1.00 a piece - woop!) were SO good! They also had pumpkin donuts (fresh and warm-what dreams are made of), bbq options, apple crisp and other foods that all looked really good! We took a ride on the hay wagon out to the pumpkin patch, ate our donuts, drank our slushes and of course had to snap a few pics with this adorable setup they had!
The fun continued into Sunday with more girlfriend time! I haven't been able to make it to a Holiday Mart (crazy, I know!). Finally, Sunday I was able to go check it out! I loved everything about it! Defiantly put me in the holiday mood! Over 200 vendors and TONS of cute stuff. I've already made plans to attend another similar event in November (9th-12th), located at the OP convention center; KC Holiday Boutique. Send the date to your lady friends and make a date!
