This past Friday, September 12th our family packed up and headed out to Grapevine's annual Grapefest. "GrapeFest, the largest wine festival in the Southwest, is the perfect blend of great wines, great food and great times." Admission was free from 10-5 p.m. on Friday, so at 4:58 p.m. we walked through the entrance gate :)

We had dinner that consisted of hot dogs, corn dogs, nachos, water, soda, and beer :) Little Miss got two flowers painted on her cheek. Both of the kids took a turn at the Home Depot tent colouring tiles, we checked out the cool hot rods, and danced to one of the many live bands. Little Miss also took her turn at "wine making" by stomping the grapes (Little Man got as far as taking off his shoes before he decided that that wasn't for him). Both of the kids got to ride the ponies, Little Miss was on Comanche and Little Man rode Chester.

On the way out, I picked up some delicious kettle corn (I LOVE kettle corn!!) while Ryan and the kids had some ice cream.

All in all, a great family evening came to an end as we exited the fest, loaded onto the shuttle bus that took us to the car and headed home! By the time we left around 8:30 p.m. the line to enter Grapefest wrapped around the block!
