We just had the BEST time! The kids had no school one Monday, the weather was amazing, and I had the urge to explore somewhere new. We hadn't been able to hit a pumpkin patch on any Saturday thanks to activities and mostly unpacking still. We were approaching the end of that season and so this was the only day left we could do it. And unfortunately Joey had a very crazy busy day at work and couldn't join us. I really hated doing it without him :( We always do everything like this all together. He told us to go anyways because he wanted the kids to have fun on their day off and he knew I needed to get out of the house and make some memories with them(since having Luke, he had been taking them places more..I had been stuck at home a lot). I heard about this place called Center Grove Orchard-an apple orchard and pumpkin patch. And SO much more. I could not believe how many awesome things there were to do here. It kicked Flower Mound's hiney. And we loved Flower Mound! I am so glad we made this trip and did this! I was unsure if I could handle them all..and this place was a good 45 minute-hour drive too. But we did it! The older girls helped me a lot and we all had fun. There was something for everyone. Favorites were the HUGE slide, the big "corn pool" and these big bouncy thingies. There was also a petting zoo, tractor ride, a corn maze, little tractors for the kids to drive, and many more things I can't even name. It couldn't have been a better day. We also enjoyed apple cider slushies there that were delightful. We had never had that before. And as we were leaving, the kids even talked me into buying apple cider and donuts to have for breakfast the next day. I must've been in a good mood ;) I can't wait to go again next year and share the fun with Joey!! We missed you babe but thanks for being okay with us going without you. I did need those memories with the kids and me. I had been missing having "fun" in the middle of all the craziness of new baby and moving.
