Fall Fun

We've had a busy week over here.  This is one of my favorite times of year!  It's kinda sad how fast fall flies by, so I love getting outdoors and doing as much as we can!

We went up to Frederick Meijer Garden on Tuesday night to get a sneak peak at some of their ArtPrize Exhibits.  They have all their Fall decor out, so it looks gorgeous.  The mums on display are rediculous!!!
The kids...ok I had a craving for donuts and cider, so we went up to Robinettes on Wednesday afternoon.  
Smart to do it on a weekday afternoon rather than a weekend.  Too bad Dan has to miss out on all our fun adventures!
Thursday I dragged the kids to Koetsiers to pick up some corn stalks and mums, and just by chance, we ended up hitting the jackpot!  Apparently there was a GR Kids event being held, and we were lucky enough to sneak in as a walk in.  (you were supposed to register...oops).   For $10 a kid we got to:
play in the (several) bounce houses
take a hay ride
take a bumble bee- car ride
pick mini pumpkins from the patch
see the animals (goats and chickens)
paint mini pumpkins
ride tractor bikes around a hay bail course
enjoy a snack (cider, donuts, popcorn)
walk the spooky maze
 Are you kidding me?  It was the best morning ever.  I even managed to do a little shopping before we left.  Lots of mums, corn stalks, hay bails and a pumpkin.  Not too bad!
