Fall Exploring List

It's here. My favorite season of the year. I love the change of colors on the trees, a warm cup of coffee or hot cocoa and all the fun activities and outdoor things to do in the cool and beautiful days full of sunshine and light breezes.


What do you enjoy doing in the fall?

Here is our Exploring List for the fall, maybe you will find some ideas to do with your family.


apple pickin'
go on a hayride
go to Cox Farms
make apple crisp
weekend picnic at the winery
trick or treating
try a new chili recipe
watch football as a family
go hiking
make leaf art
roast marshmallows
celebrate Ben's birthday

Do you have anything to explore this fall or an new adventure for the kiddos? I would love to hear about it!


Do you have a tradition that you always do in the fall or a favorite fall activity?

First, in all honesty, it's hard. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love being a mom and I feel so incredibly grateful to stay at home with them each day. My goal this summer is to abide and if I look further I want it to become a part of my daily thoughts.  So, I am starting small...."


I am over at The Purposeful Housewife's blog today talking about finding rest as a busy mom. Seems fitting after talking about staying organized :)
