Embracing a Healthy Family: Bob Evans Farm Festival Correspondent & Excited

Bob Evans Farm Festival Correspondent & Excited

Bob Evans October 14, 15 & 16 - Farm Festival Bob Evans Farm - Rio Grande, OH - 41st Annual
Did I mention that I'm excited to be going to Ohio this weekend to participate as a Bob Evans Farm Festival Correspondent?  It's one of the bigger things to do in Ohio and especially for the area it's located in.  This is the 41st annual festival so it's something that is a big deal.  If you are like me, you love Bob Evans food and restaurant and it's one thing I miss about living in Indiana.  I used to go there for breakfast, lunch or dinner and enjoyed it every time.  Since I moved away, I can still have the great taste at home with products available at my local store.  There is just something dreamy about those mashed potatoes and gravy or heavenly about the breakfast menu that is making my mouth water thinking about it because I'm going to be eating at Bob Evans while I'm there too!  It's a double win for me and my family.  I don't think my younger children have ever at there so they will get a great experience from the festival and the restaurant.  


The Bob Evans Farm Festival takes place from October 14 through the 16th in Rio Grande, Ohio.  It's also very inexpensive at $5 per adult, $3 per child ages 6-18 and free for children ages 5 and under so you can't beat that for some family fun while eating great food, having fun, learning a thing or two and supporting some wonderful non-profits who will be there.  I'm of course looking forward to the food, arts & crafts, kids activities and demonstrations.  


We're going to embark on a very long drive to get there and my cousin has even made travel binders for our way back so the children won't be bored.  I suspect they will be hyped up as much when we leave as they are now!


Look at the beautiful flowers and a craftsman working from last year:


  

I've been studying the maps and planning our trip to ensure we all have fun.  I'm even meeting my cousin and her family there so the memories are going to be even more special as we share this time together in the first time in over 20 years.
