I saved my little gemstone for last…I FINALLY was able to photograph my nephew Jacob who just turned 5 years old! He lives an hour and half away from us…so we don’t get the opportunity to see him very often. How cute is he? This little one is ALL boy!
We journey up north for two hours to finally see Fall Y’all!! In Florida, unfortunately this is what it takes! We are so grateful, for our sister in law Tami letting us know about this GREAT event. I have been to ALOT of festivals in my time for fall…but this one beats the cake. It is located in Bradenton, FL at Husader’s Farm. Just to let you understand the size and scope of this, it runs for four weeks long! The Pumpkin Festival is loads of fun and consists of: 100+ Craft Booths • Live Music • Live Shows • Pumpkins • Charity Pumpkin Games • Pioneer Trades Village • Hayrides • Pony Rides • Chainsaw Sculptor • Corn Maze Scarecrow Displays • Homemade Ice Cream • Farm Roasted Sweet Corn • Food Galore • Pumpkin Pie • Rock Climbing Wall• Power Jump • Petting Zoo • Barnyard Playground • Face Painting • Children’s Train Ride • Juggler • Fresh Produce •Butterfly Experience • Frog Jumping Championship!
You could eat something different everyday for weeks here…oh so fun!
Girls the eye candy on the crafts…just yummy too.
I will be sharing more posts on this fun day in different arenas…so stay tuned.
Have you had a nice fall so far? I love to hear your sweet thoughts…
