Welcome back y’all! Hopefully you guys made it through yesterday’s video post without any ill side effects! If you made it through the entire video, I am sending you a virtual cookie and a hug!
Thankfully in the midst of a Fall full of migraines, we had a couple chances to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather! Some of my favorite things about fall are beautiful days and a drop in sweet Southern humidity! Can I get an amen on that?!
My family lives five hours away so whenever we get a chance to all get together, we try to soak up every minute we can get! My parents along with my sister and three sweet nieces came down for a visit so we took advantage of a beautiful Saturday and headed down to Hollywild Animal Park! We love going to Hollywild as its a smaller zoo so its child (and spoonie!) friendly! It also helps that the terrain is almost entirely flat so that adds bonus points in the child and spoonie department. If you notice Hollywild sounds a lot like “Hollywood” as many of its animal residents are animal actors and have stared in movies or commercials! The resident rhino is the star of the Zycam “rhino virus” commercial as well as the Land Rover commercial from a few year’s back!
Here are some of my favorite shots:
I melt every time I look at the picture of Abby and Dorothy holding hands (be still my beating heart!) and I laugh every time I look at the picture of Happy Jack (the zonkey in the middle!). One of our other favorite things about Hollywild is the safari ride where you get to feed the animals! Be careful as you might get licked!
One of our other fall adventures was to our local corn maze! It is seriously one of the coolest places to visit! This year’s maze was in the shape of Charlie Brown & The Great Pumpkin! In addition to the maze, they had a hayride to a pumpkin patch, a zipline for kids, a cow train ride, a corn canon, and a host of other redneck fun:
I thought Abby would be a little hesitant to try out the zipline but I was way wrong! She loved it and probably rode it five times! We made it through the maze by luck as somehow our directions weren’t lining up and we seemed to bypass some markers! I thought only Thomasville had big chairs but we learned that Shelby has one too! I could not help but take a picture with the giant metal chicken! If you have ever read The Bloggess, you will know exactly why!
These were definitely two highlights of fall so far! Have you had any fun fall adventures with your family and friends? Do you have anything that is on your “must do” list every fall?
