Overland Park Arboretum

I have a feeling our colorful, nice weather weekends are numbered, so we decided to check out the Overland Park Arboretum this weekend before all of the beautiful colors are gone. I had never been...this place is a photographer's haven! Trees, walkways, installation art, streams and's beautiful!

After the Arboretum, we headed up to Shawnee Mission Park, to catch some of the colors there too!

Friday Finds!

It's Friday...time for Friday Finds! My husband and I are making little light green tweaks to our lifestyle to be more environmentally conscious (check our our progress on our brand new blog!) so this week I am featuring these reusable sandwich and snack bags from Moo Cow Momma! These are such great idea, they are reusable, washable, and food-safe! They will also save you money in the long run, which is something we think about when making these lifestyle changes! She has tons of great fabric to choose from, and is more than happy to create a custom order for you! Please check out Moo Cow Momma's shop!

Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze Fun!

This weekend's local attractions that my husband and I visited were Carolyn's Country Cousins Pumpkin Patch and the Liberty Corn Maze. We braved the cold (an overcast, windy 48 degrees) and all of the mud after a lot of rain! We had such a good time, even with the less than ideal conditions! That's what makes great 'remember when' stories though, right?

Carolyn's has lots of animals in the petting zoos. They all come up to you at the fence expecting a little snack!

This is the entrance to the corn maze. You can choose from several different courses, ranging to .7 miles to over 3 miles. We started out on the .7 mile course, and ended up on the 3 mile course! I think we need to sharpen our map-reading skills!

Look how muddy!

So, if you live in the KC area, I highly suggest checking out these two places. They are a lot of fun! However, I also suggest you not check them out after a lot of rain! :)

Friday Finds!

I am so SO excited that Fall is here, that I thought I'd keep the 'Yay Fall' theme going into this week's Friday Finds. This GORGEOUS painting is by Sagittarius Gallery. I love everything about this...the colors are fantastic, it has a wonderful texture to it - I could stare at it all day and enjoy Fall year round! Please check out all of her fabulous work she has available in her shop!
