This is the second year that we've visited Gallrein Farms in Shelbyville and we loved it! My sister in law Jana and I had photographed a wedding the day prior and it was in the eighties and SO warm. It was crazy to see the temps drop so quickly Sunday while we were at the farm, and luckily for us, the rain held off until the very end. Our friends Tim and Clayton joined, and other than missing Uncle Noah [poor guy was sick at home!], we had the same crew as last year!
Gallrein has an awesome petting zoo and we all loved seeing the different animals. You know me, my favorite animal(s) there were the horses. I'm always so jealous of these farms and wish I could just kidnap a horse or two. Or just have the owner give one to me--haha!
The kids had their faces painted, jumped in bounce houses, ate some snacks, rode the train, and last but not least, we of course went out to the pumpkin patch!
Baby Kennedy was SUCH a trooper by the way. She's a month old now [how did this happen??] and she never fussed one bit about the wind and at one time, spitting rain droplets. In case you missed it, Tim and Clayton are in the process of adopting her and have been her guardians since the day she was born--they even stayed her last night in the hospital with her! They are two amazing dads and we are very blessed to call them friends. [Friends? Or family? Ha!]
It started to REALLY rain as we were leaving, and Jana took her girls and Asa went with Reese to the corn maze. I took Pierson and his cousin Keats and we camped out in the car until they were finished, haha. We blared some music and had a hilarious car dance. We of course indulged in a LOT of fresh donuts before the trip ended, I swear I could have eaten a dozen by myself.
If you haven't checked out Gallrein Farms, you're definitely missing out. Just a short thirty minute drive from Louisville, it's a quick and easy trip. Not to mention gorgeous--I passed SO many beautiful farms. I'm still just praying that one of them someday finds my blog and just offers me to take over the property. I mean, why not dream right?
Happy Fall, Y'all! This is my favorite season of all and I am SO excited that we've had these great festitivites to remember!
