Homestead Resort Fall Festival Oct. 20th!



Homestead Resort Annual Fall Festival!  
 Saturday, Oct. 20, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

No more thinking the Homestead Fall Festival would be fun...now I KNOW!  We went last weekend and it was a great time for me and my family!!  We got there and found a witch telling stories, complimentary hand massages, horse drawn hayrides, and a visit to the pumpkin patch!  Not to mention amazing food at very reasonable prices!  I guess I expected the food to be expensive, but it wasn't!  


When you get there you see a bunch of decorated scarecrows.  My son's favorite was the one that scared him the most..lol  When you take your vote into the gift shop they give you a free piece of fudge!  Then we waited in line for a bit for the hayride.  My kids absolutely LOVED this.  My daughter even made a new friend that she just HAD to sit by. :)  Once we got to the pumpkin patch my kids recited lines from "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown", made a big pile of hay and then took turns (kinda) jumping in it.  


After they picked out their pumpkin and played we hopped on the hayride again and rode back so that the kids could decorate their pumpkins.  You can tell from his face that he was super stoked about this. :)  


After we got our fill of the activities we explored the Homestead further.  Going this time of year was so amazing!  The trees everywhere are changing colors and it made an already beautiful place...overwhelming!  It feels like a quaint, peaceful village.  My pictures really don't do it justice.


We stayed the night in the Barn which was really nice!!  After the kids exhausted themselves jumping on the beds we all went to the playground across from the pond that was outside our room, where my daughter wanted to practice her hanging skills :)  Then we ate at Fannie's Grill.  The customer service everywhere was excellent and I would recommend the Homestead Resort to absolutely everyone!!  This is definitely a place I want to come back to again and again!!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
