Looking for a fun fall day trip?  Need some new harvest time decor? I have the perfect place to recommend, Enchanted Acres in Sheffield, Iowa. 

Enchanted Acres has something for all ages!  As it says on their website, “ It’s “that happy place” where kids, from 2 to 92, can channel Cinderella or Jack Sparrow. Enchanted Acres is a place where we all can dream about our happily ever after!”

The girls and I headed to Enchanted Acres for their opening weekend festivities.  We were able to enjoy lunch, partake in Books in the Barn, feed the goats, play on the equipment, pick pumpkins, shopped in the market and enjoyed the great outdoors.  

There are lots of kids activities going on throughout the fall like pumpkin painting, but there are also activities for grown-ups, too.  You can stay up to date on all of their activities by checking out their Facebook page.

I hope you take some time this fall, go grab some pumpkins and enjoy the day with your family!

Happy Friday!  What a crazy week of polar vortex it has been, 4 snow days in a row is wild!  I think the girls were starting to get tired of not being able to play outside and get some fresh air, one probably wouldn’t admit it, but I think she was even excited to get back to school today!

At Christmas time as a fun family gift we decided to give the gift of time to each other. I gave each person in our family three manila envelopes with different dates on the front. Each person had to plan a fun family event for the month and put it in the envelope and then on the 1st of the month we will open the envelope and make plans to do the family activity.

Ellie had January and she had roller skating and supper out in her envelope.  We truly had every intention on going to Roller City on a Tuesday night, but the weather has not cooperated. So...we did our January outing tonight on February 1st!  🙂

Roller City is such a fun local place for all ages. I remember going to Roller City as a child and I think the best part of going as an adult is how it doesn’t feel much different, it is like a blast back into the past especially when they play songs by Tiffany!

We are super excited to open our February envelope!  I told them they had to wait until tomorrow since we did our January fun today. 😉

What fun things do you do as a family? Any ideas for us?
