Fall Festival Weekend

Our weekend was full of fall festival fun! For the third year in a row we attended Schnepf Farm’s Pumpkin & Chili Festival.  We feasted on cinnamon rolls the size of paper plates and brownies that melt in your mouth- definitely better than what we typically have for breakfast.

Breakfast of champions people.

The festival opens at 10AM and we timed it perfectly and walked through the gates right at opening.  As most parents know, mornings are the best for activities and coupled with temperatures hitting in the low 90s we planned accordingly.

The General Store offered up comfortable seating and scrumptious desert-for breakfast! Last year we attended the festival at night and delved into their famous chili, cornbread, and chicken. YUM. A special treat for those that attend at night is being able to roast marshmallows at one of the bonfires.  The toddler proudly roasted his first marshmallow last year.

Little Miss Independent loved exploring on her own.  

What I love even more is how she runs over for random hugs!

The Spooky train ride is “not so spooky” at night and PERFECT for toddlers. The highlight was the tunnel and waving at everyone.  Priceless watching them delight in waving at people proudly. Shout-out to all the parents and young people alike that choose to wave back to kids.  

It makes their day!

The Strut

We easily spent an hour picking out perfect pumpkins.  Both toddlers took their time choosing and the only parameters they were given were that it could not be rotting.  Em found her’s at the top of a mound.  The Toddler wandered down through both patches and found his at the very back of the farm. Priceless.

Our family will always attend this Fall Festival. Family memories made.  Now the filthy clothes are in the wash, pumpkins are ready for carving, and I have two happy kids chatting about our adventures.

What were you up to this weekend?

Have you carved your pumpkins yet?
