As the summer is winding down and we are thinking of the cooler days ahead, hang on to the best memories that your family has made during the past few months. Talk about the "top five favorites" and journal together, organize a digital photo album, and note what you would like to continue to do in the years to come! These family activities will not only reinforce those special moments but also help your kids as they transition back to school since many teachers have their students share their favorite summer activities.
One of Ebert's favorite early summer memories year after year, is having the spring coloring contest winners come out to plant their theme gardens! Congratulations again to our 2023 winners! Check out the pictures of their finished containers below to see their creativity and what themes they chose! Winners left to right are Owen, (age six- with a baseball theme), Maycee, (age nine—with a mallard duck theme), and Ella, (age four—with a princess theme)! We hope that all of you had some favorite summer memories outside in the garden, and can continue to enjoy the outdoors and gardening this fall as well!
With so much beauty that the autumn colors bring, all of us at Ebert's are anxiously awaiting, and getting ready for the fall fun coming soon! Hayrides out to get the perfect pumpkin, our corn maze, train rides, pumpkin painting, and games throughout the grounds are just some of the activities to come!
Make sure to check out our website for the upcoming seasonal events, and especially consider packing a shoebox to share with a child who would experience so much joy and happiness as a result! Click on the link to learn about our Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Collection 2023!
