Fall Festivities

The cool weather is making me think it’s time to make a list of fun things to do this fall.  There are SO many fun fall activities aside from chugging pumpkin spice lattes – here’s my list so far:

    Me at the pumpkin farm in 2016 – Giraffes like carrots.

    A trip to the pumpkin farm.  My favorite is Goebbert’s Pumpkin farm in Hampshire, IL.  Why?  Not only do you get to take a hayride into the pumpkin field to pick your own pumpkin, they have GIRAFFES.  And you can feed them!!!  Need I say more?  Fabulous place – here’s the link to their website so you can see for yourself:  http://goebbertspumpkinpatch.com/.

  • Snuggle up in my rocking chair to watch a movie while having popcorn and apple cider.  Bonus points if it’s a cool rainy night and you can wrap up in a blanket.
  • Go to a football game.  Or a practice.  I like to walk over to the elementary school in my neighborhood and watch the PeeWee teams practice – they’re so cute!
  • Go for a walk and kick the leaves.  I love to walk through leaves – bonus points for walking through a pile of leaves!
  • Bake an apple pie.  My favorite apple pie recipe is the one on the box of Pillsbury pie crusts.  Shhhh!  Don’t tell anyone that I don’t make my own crusts!

That should get you started – what’s your favorite fall activity?  Let me know in the comments!
