Fall Family Fun To Do List

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year!

You'd think, growing up in the Northeast, I would cling to Summer for dear life, but I'm usually happy to see it go. I suppose living in North Carolina for five years soured me - I'm so not a 100 degree girl! Dealing with it day, after day, after day got extremely old, extremely quickly. I pretty much did my hibernating in the summer, only venturing outdoors when the temps dipped into the 70's. I've always loved the beauty of the season - but my Charlotte experience made me all but obsessed.

I love that having kids gives me an excuse to do all the ridiculously fun fall things I want to do without looking like a crazy woman. Time flies with little ones, though - so I often find myself at Thanksgiving without completing everything I wanted to do. Not this year! I made a list to help us keep track, and I'm sharing mine with you!

2011 Fall Family Fun To Do List!

1. Pack some fall foods and have a fall picnic in a woodsy setting (park? back yard?)
2. Take a Nature Walk
3. Fall/Nature scavenger hunt in the yard with Luke (draw little pictures for his checklist so he can follow it himself)
4. Leaf collecting & rubbings
5. Make a Halloween paper chain countdown
6. Have a backyard campfire meal (spider dogs, smores, etc)
7. Check out Fall kids books from the library
8. Write names (or maybe initials) out of leaves & take pictures
9. Take a fall trip to the Farmer's Market
10. Make Ghost pancakes
11. Watch Halloweentown (if Disney shows it this year!)
