It’s crazy to think that I shared our Fall Family Fun list well over 6 weeks ago and it just now feels like the fall weather has arrived. So much of our fall felt like summer and we struggled to mark anything off of our list for the first month. But regardless of that, our list is about halfway done. Today I wanted to share our progress and a few fall photos we’ve taken along the way too.
What we’ve done so far…
Go on a hayride
Halloween Movie Night (we’ve had 2)
Attend a Fall Party (we attended 3)
Get lost in a corn maze
Bake a pumpkin treat (One, Two, Three, Four and counting…)
Hot Rod Reunion at MoKan
Bonfire & S’mores (I think the bonfire night count is at 3)
Try a new soup recipe
With the official arrival of fall just over 2 weeks away, I thought now would be the perfect time to share our 2017 Fall Family Fun list.
In the spirit of being honest I need to confess something… I almost didn’t make a fall list. I think a huge reason for that has been complete and utter failure with our spring and summer lists. I made them and then life just happened. But more than that, I discovered that we didn’t need them to fill in the gaps anymore. If all that I put on our summer list was attend VBS and go to the pool my girls would easily declare it the ‘Best Summer Ever’.
However, fall and Christmas are more about tradition than the relaxation of spring & summer break. There are things that our family has done year, after year and making a list helps me to keep track of them. So even though I may never create another spring or summer bucket list, I think fall and Christmas ones are here to stay.
Here is what we have planned for our fall.
With the first official day of fall arriving tomorrow I thought it was the perfect time to share our fall bucket list.
Disclaimer: the odds of me being one of the last to post my list is probably pretty high, especially since I waited until right before fall officially starts. BUT, I would like you to know that I made this list and scheduled this post on August 12th! I just had to put that in here so my being “late” to the bucket list party wasn’t confused with me not being excited. I love fall every bit as much as any other boot & scarf wearing, pumpkin spice eating, giddy that it’s fall, basic white girl. It’s a stereotype that I will always proudly embrace.
Here is what I have planned for our fall.
*Have a bonfire
*Have a chili night
*Play in the leaves
*Make apple dumplings
*Make sweet potato pie
*Visit a pumpkin patch
*Go for a nature walk
*Bob for apples
*Navigate a corn maze
*Have a pumpkin spice latte
*Halloween movie night
*Make a fall craft
*Drink apple cider
*Go on a hay-ride
*Make a thankful tree
*Attend a fall festival
*Try a new pumpkin recipe
We plan to spend from now until Thanksgiving working hard on our list, crossing off as many things as we can, and making as many memories as possible.
