Fall Fun at Gentry's Farm

For the 2nd year in a row, John's work had a fall gathering for all of it's local employees at Gentry's Farm. I was looking forward to this weekend since September.

 The entry to the Farm list all of the fun things for everyone to explore while they visit the farm.  All of the farm is decorated in a very "Pinterest-y" feeling- super cute and pulled together, yet totally with a DIY vibe.

 What made the trip to the farm even better was the ENTIRE Apedaile6 crew was home! Sarah was home for a visit during her fall break. Perfect timing!

 Inside the tobacco barn was a hay bale maze with some fun slides and tunnels.

 Twisty slide smiles!

 Even the big kids had fun on the slides!

JT has mastered the super cheesy smiles since starting school. He just wanted to go into the tunnel and I was holding him up.

 Still short enough to be able to walk through.

 On the other hand, the sisters hollered all the way through how bad their knees hurt while crawling through.

Getting ready to pet the goat.

 The corn and wheat play area.

 Not sure why this area is so much fun to play in, but it is! 

 Filling the bottle up over and over again.

 All of the Apedaile6 crew were all having fun playing.

 "Mom, why are you taking so many pictures?"

 Lindsay and her corny smile- ha ha.

 Getting ready to head into the corn maze. I really love this photo of me and the kids.

 The design of the maze this year. I love how much U.S. history is near where we live.

 Starting out on our corn maze adventure! 2 of the 4 Apedaile kids think they can walk through it blind since they were closing their eyes.

 Yummy corn!

 Leader of the pack.

 Some were more sure footed than others. I love these moments capturing the laughter and fun of our family.

 We made it to the end!

 Nature walk along the Harpeth River.

 JT's walking stick for the trail.

 Gentry's Farm is where JT had his first tire swing ride last year and he couldn't wait to get back on.

 As you can see, JT loved every moment of his ride.

 Then, we headed over for our hay ride around the farm.

 This calf had been born only 30 minutes before our ride. The driver said a previous hay ride group was able to witness the birth.

 Random cow licking its face.

 The three houses on the property date back as late as 1859.

 They are still occupied by family members that work the farm.

We finished our activities in the Munchkin Maze.

 A kind stranger offered to take a full family photo, which was sweet. Too bad half of John's face was covered by Courtney's head. It's the thought that counts, right?

Thank you once again, Gentry's Farms! Looking forward to next fall!
