My favorite season of the year is here, and even though it may not feel like it (hello 80 degree temps), you can't help but get into the fall spirit with pumpkins everywhere you look. We made our very first trip to Louisburg Cider Mill this year. It's one of those fall traditions that, according to almost anyone in KC, you just have to experience, and it did not disappoint.
I packed up my Rebekah Scott Designs Melissa bag with all the essentials for the day. With an abundance of space inside, and tons of pockets it definitely had room for everything we needed for both a one year old and pre-schooler with room to spare.
When RSD approached me about collaborating, I jumped at the chance. I love supporting the amazing brands of my fellow momtreprenuers who work so hard to make beautiful products for others. Each Rebekah Scott bag is custom made. You choose your bag style, fabrics, and even strap color. You have to pop on over to their website and learn more about Rebekah's story and her journey to starting this authentically inspiring brand. RSD has also been generous enough to offer $10 off when you spend $100 or more. Just use the code Hazel&Ollie to get your discount (offer valid for one week only).
I went with the oversized black and white gingham. I love how this pattern is classic, but modern at the same time, and of course gender neutral. Brown straps were a great contrast, and the fun floral fabric inside is a secret pop of color. There is so much quality and attention to detail in all of the RSD pieces. I've road tested this puppy for 2 months, and it's handled picnics, trips to the zoo, days a the park, and of course days at the cider mill. And most importantly it's comfortable and easy to wear.
Our first stop when we arrived was the famous cider donuts. Made fresh right on site, they did not disappoint. Warm cinnamon sugary goodness, they were a big hit with everyone.
One of the things I loved about Louisburg was the variety of activities they had for all ages. Not just a cider mill, they had a full blown pumpkin patch complete with petting zoo, giant slides, hay rides, a huge corn pit, and the biggest bounce house we've ever seen, plus live kid friendly music.
After all that activity it was time for some lunch. We grabbed one of Louisburg's signature cider slushes and headed to the park to wind down. The weather here in the midwest has been unseasonably warm this October, which makes for perfect picnics outside. My RSD bag had plenty of space to pack food for both kiddos and grown-ups alike.
As I'm sure you can imagine Sam and Eleanor fell asleep in the car on the way home. We had such an amazing day at Lousiburg Cider Mill making fall memories with our friends.
