Fall Family Fun Day!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent it with my hubby and boys...and we had a blast!!! Be prepared for lots of pictures! :-)

Friday night we went to my friend Stephanie's house for her daughter Sydney's 8th birthday. She had a Halloween themed party and the boys had so much fun!!! They ate pizza, cake, and got to decorate pumpkins!

Check out this awesome cake! And yes it tasted as good as it looked!


And here are my sweet boys painting their pumpkins...which are now proudly displayed on our fireplace mantel! ;-)


Since I wasn't running a long run this weekend due to my week of rest, Saturday I got to sleep in and it was marvelous!!! I woke up refreshed and even cooked breakfast for my boys. Then we decided to go to the Magnolia Corn Maze for some fun! I love this time of year...there are so many fun activities!!!


This year they added a children's maze cut out of wild flowers...the flowers were gorgeous and we had to take a picture in front of them!



Now I don't know about you but I am NOT good with directions! So these mazes are super hard for me! Luckily my wonderful hubby is great with them...usually! ;-) This year's maze was cut into the shape of the state of Alabama and the paths represent the state's major interstates, highways, and roads. We had 8 different cities that we had to check off on our map...Mobile, Birmingham, Montgomery, Florence, Huntsville, Tuscaloosca, Auburn, and Dothan. Once you found the city you punched your map and kept going through the maze.





I had to get a picture of Sawyer wearing his Auburn jersey in Auburn! :-)

And here we are in the city of Auburn! ;-)

I may be biased but I think they are THE cutest boys ever!!!

And the city closest to us...Mobile!

We actually went into the maze 2 times! The first time we only found 7 of the cities. We exited the maze to use the restroom and get some water...and to determine which city we were missing. It was Birmingham! How did we miss Birmingham? So back in we went to get our 8th punch on our map! I was determined to get all 8 because you turned your completed map in for a chance to win a Visa gift card!

After our fun in the maze we went on a hayride!

We then enjoyed some of the other activities...the Hop-a-long Rodeo (which Sawyer attempted and then started crying at the start line), the petting zoo, the corn cannon, and the pig races!




They also had a pumpkin patch! Ok it's not a real pumpkin patch but it's all we get here in the south...just a bunch of pumpkins sitting on the ground that you can choose from. The boys wanted to pick one but it costs extra and that's part of the plan for next weekend. So we just took a few pictures with the pumpkins!

This is one of my favorite pictures of Sawyer! He wanted to hold that huge pumpkin so bad!!! :-)




After we were finished having fun at the corn maze we decided to eat some dinner and then head to the movies. Hayden has been wanting to see the movie "Hotel Transylvania" so we thought it was the perfect night for it.


This movie was sooo cute!!!! Adam Sandler is one of my favorites and he didn't disappoint in this movie. We will definitely be adding this to our movie library when it comes out on Blu-Ray!

Watch the trailer below! It is soooo funny!



Thanks for reading this long post! I just had such a fun weekend that I wanted to share it all with you!!! I'm so blessed to have such great times with my family!

QOTD: Have you ever gone to a corn maze? Did you like it?
