The leaves are starting to turn, the air is cooling down and fall activities are gearing up. This is such an exciting time with children going back to school and holiday season just around the corner.
Fall is just about the perfect time to update those family photos. Photographers usually have mini session specials at affordable prices this time of year. It’s a fun time to coordinate outfits with your family and make a day of the outing.
Check your area for local fall festivals. Many areas hold Oktoberfest festivals and Pumpkin Patches throughout late September and October.
Watch Scary Movies
A Bonfire with Smores
A fire and smores can be done in most backyards. Make these tasty snacks before you watch your scary movies. I love the MalloMe Marshmellow roasting sticks. They are color coded so everyone in the family can use their favorite color.
Take a Hike
Walking in the crisp fall air with the leaves turning is an excellent way to spend time with family enjoying the outdoors.
Volunteer as a Family
Most areas have volunteer activities that center around the holidays. What better way to spend Thanksgiving than by also serving other. Check your local region for canned food drives and areas set up to feed the homeless.
Eat all the Pumpkin
Pumpkin flavors showing up in stores and coffee shops symbolize the start of the fall season to many. Pumpkin flavored coffee, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread and so much more.
Life is amazing. Just sit back and think about that. The odds that we are all here is a miracle in itself. Don’t forget to give thanks for this crazy thing called life.
