It’s that time of year already, kids are in school, the hot days are fewer, and apples are ready to be picked. Here are a few places you can go to pick-your-own apples.

Hidden Hollow Orchard right here in Louisville is also a good place to visit.  Check their website for updates - they are open again for 2017 (estimated 8/26).

Joe Hubers Farm in Starlight, IN is a great place to pick some apples.

Huber's Orchard & Winery has a large variety of apples for picking!

Solar Eclipse Viewing Events and Watch Parties in Kentucky and Southern Indiana

 photo solar eclipse LFF_zpsshrmrur0.png

Chances are you've heard about the solar eclipse that will occur on Monday, August 21st. This is a huge event for Kentucky, because parts of the state are in the path of totality, meaning the moon will completely block out the sun as it passes between the sun and the earth. Optimal total solar eclipse viewing will be slightly northwest of Hopkinsville, Ky. It's a once in a lifetime viewing opportunity for many, so thousands of people from around the world will be traveling to see it. A map of totality can be found here. For those living in Louisville, a partial solar eclipse will be seen. NASA has a great website explaining everything! And, an interactive map for locations and times.

Below are events that will be taking place all across the Kentucky and Southern Indiana.

Please note: regardless of the degree of totality, you WILL NEED solar eclipse glasses for viewing! Some venues will have a limited number of pairs available. Play it safe and buy a pair before the 21st. We've seen them for sale ($1 - $2) at local Kroger, Lowes, Walmart and Heine Bros. locations-- to name a few!

Review of Ladies Night Out at Board and Brush in Louisville, KY

We were granted admission for purpose of review
 photo 20170616_205715-1_zpslsk3kbqr.jpgI recently had a girls' night at Board and Brush Louisville. It's located in the East End, right off 265. It's conveniently situated next to a Mexican restaurant for chips and margaritas right before or after! (Board and Brush also has a bar and snacks for sale which was great to have while creating our projects).

Prior to arriving, we registered for a specific wood project online. They have a TON of pictures to choose from in their online gallery. We took care to fill out our names, dates, and other details, with accurate spelling. Word to the wise - the smaller the words/designs/font, the more difficult your project will be. For your first project, you may want to choose a project with big letters, and not a lot of detail work.

Upon arrival, we checked in and found our pieces of wood and pre-cut stencil waiting for us. It was so convenient to have this prepared in advance. After we checked the spelling on our stencils, they explained the process we were about to follow, and we got to work. We also picked out a wine to share.

For over 20 years, KidStuff Sale has been the one-stop shop for parents and families looking to stock up and save on everything they need for their kids. Our events consistently draw thousands of local parents and grandparents ready and willing to shop big.

Our merchandise includes children’s clothing, indoor and outdoor toys, strollers, car seats and high chairs, bikes, books, games, nursery items, and much more.
KidStuff Sale is independently owned and run by and for local families. For Fall 2017, we’ll be in three locations.

Tune into this episode of Fortyish - Dan and Stephanie talk about parenting other kids......in public.

I bet your little ones love trucks, mine did when they were younger. Clarksville is hosting a FREE Touch-a-Truck event at Gateway Park from 6-8pm. Children will be able to get up close and personal with the cool trucks and construction equipment they see on the road everyday. Vehicles include police cruisers, fire trucks, construction equipment, limousines, box trucks, and much more! Face painting, balloon animals too.  After Touch-A-Truck, stick around for Disney’s “Moana” beginning at dusk. Be sure to bring a blanket or lawn chair for the movie.
