Fall Festival - Florida Style

Yesterday was the perfect day for a Fall Festival, other than the Florida (not so Fall) heat and football kickoff times of 1pm. Despite those two things, we headed to Hunsader Farms for a fun filled morning with the Piersoll Clan. I was totally blown away by the amount of things to do at this festival. Of course there were pumpkins, pony rides, candy apples, hayrides, and corn mazes. But ... there was also a petting zoo, a classic car show, tractors on display, craft booths, and a butterfly tent.

Abby wanted no part of riding a pony this time around, which really comes as a shock because she loves animals. Maybe I had something to do with that because of her first ride. Who knows. Camdyn and Chloe sure loved it and we all had quite a laugh when Cam's pony needed to go "potty." The petting zoo and butterfly tent were hits and Abby probably had the most fun playing in the pumpkin tent and dancing on the stage with the live country band.

Even though the weather doesn't feel like Fall here in Florida, there is still something in the air that I love this time of year. I love all the decorations, pumpkins, candy apples, cider ... everything. It was such a fun time spending the day in the open air with great friends and thankfully our hubbies weren't too upset with the amount of football missed. :)

Abby didn't want anything to do with a pony,
but she was in awe of the animals in the petting zoo.

Abby dancin' to the music!

Family Shot - this was the only halfway decent one,
even though I'm not looking at the camera.

So many pumpkins to choose from ...

... but she finally found one her size.

This little girl was asleep before we even got on the road.
Ahhh, a peaceful car ride :)

You got a peaceful car ride??? YES!!! These photos are so cute Liz! We will definitely have to take Abby to a Sugarland concert when she's older! She gets those dancing moves from her Mama!!! Just think of the fun we'll have! :)

I wish we would have gotten to the pumpkin tent! Man, that's the whole point of going to the pumpkin patch. I'm glad you got a family shot! Although, I think I took one of you guys too....
