Fall Fun!!!

My favorite season growing up in Michigan is Fall, the best part was going to the cider mill, picking apples, the weather cooling down and anticipating Halloween coming. Since moving to Florida I haven't been able to find a place that is even close to what I loved the most in Michigan...until now!!! Thanks to my friend Mary she told me about a farm that have lots of these things I would miss so dearly if I didn't head back to Michigan during this season (like this year b/c we had a baby).

We met some friends at Hunsader Farm which is located in Bradenton about an hour away from our house. O-M-G this place is huge!!! They have everything you can think of (except apple picking and donuts & cider). Without having a cell phone there would of been no way for us to find our friends! As soon as we walked in there were 2 motorcycles riding around in a steel ball, it was the coolest thing I've ever seen. As you can see from Addison's face below she loved it too!

We finally found our friends at a huge playground located towards the back where they had a band playing. On our way walking over there was a ramp for BMX bikes & skateboarders to perform, a butterfly farm, lots of food stands with all the food you shouldn't eat & a huge tent setup for a free circus. The circus was interesting...

What was Brody doing while we were there for 2 hours you ask? He was SLEEPING!!!! He was soooo good, he woke up while we were watching the circus, but after we fed him a bottle he went right back to sleep. What a sigh of relief!!

Overall it was a great time & Addison even got to ride on a little pony, just like at the cider mill in Michigan. While I forgot to get my carmel apple and it was well above 80 degrees, I'm looking forward to going back next year. I had no idea what to expect, but we'll for sure have to stay longer than 2 hours!!! Its really comforting knowing that there is in fact a place to go that is a lot like home.
