{Living For The Weekend: A Day Of Fall Fun}

So after our evening of painting on Friday, we had a super fun and relaxing Saturday planned! 

We woke up leisurely, got ready and got on the road to Irons Fruit Farm for a day of fall fun! 

This gem is an apple orchard, pumpkin patch, petting zoo, and corn maze all in one! 

This year {and last year} they didn't have you-pick-apples because of the weather, but we still had a blast! 

Last year, we went to Irons specifically to pick apples and bake an apple pie...this is what we found when we got there...

Bummer...No U-Pick Apples...but Irons Fruit Farm did not disappoint! 

We got very lost in the corn maze, 

And I saw an alpaca in person...I was a little thrilled/terrified. 

So we decided to do a second annual trip up to one of our favorite places! 

We got to see the alpacas again...

They still terrified me! No clue why...but when they look at you, they're terrifying!  

The corn maze was Reds Mr. Red Legs was there! And I got a super award picture with him :) 

And Wendel got an even more awkward picture with him. 

Then it was time for the hay ride! Still get so excited for these things! Dorky...I know! 

Ready to get lost in the corn maze! 

Still trying to figure out how the heck they do this! 

My direction captain...that man knows his way through a corn maze! 

In the middle...and slightly lost! 

We got out...obviously! They also have a huge pumpkin patch, but we passed on it because we're heading to another pumpkin patch with all of the kids next week. 

After, we hit up their bakery for some homemade apple cider and a cider delicious! 

And Wendel got an apple themed fried goodness. Can't go wrong, right? 

Then we headed home so Wendel could get some homework done...while I did this...

Then Wendel planned SUCH a fun date night! 

We have quite a few local wineries here in Northern Kentucky...random I know! 

Sometimes, the wineries will do dinner with wine tasting. 

So we headed to Stone Brook Winery for dinner and wine tasting with Alex's parents! 

The tasting was in this cute little rustic house, and the inside was just like a little cabin. 

Sorry for the TERRIBLE picture, but it was a blast! 

Great food, wonderful wine, and even better company. 

We feel so blessed to both have families that we truly enjoy being with! 

What did ya'll do this weekend? Anything fun and exciting?
