Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors, the smells, the crispness in the air. This year, we made a Fall Bucket List with the kiddos. We had to ban pumpkin related baking on the list because we had a ridiculous amount of pumpkin things that we bake every year (we've already brought a big batch of pumpkin scones to Ben's work). But other than those items, we created a pretty fun bucket list. We downloaded some cute fall fonts, made a "bucket", and the kids glued their list to the bucket. It's displayed on our fireplace, and we highlight the things we've done.
What's on this years list?
*A trip to Apple Hill
*Ride in a hot air balloon (did this at the soccer fields!)
*Attend the hot air balloon races (did this, too!)
*Attend the Reno Championship Air Races (did this-for FREE-with our homeschool group)
*Take a trip to the Sacramento Zoo (I'm thinking I may need to move this to the spring, plus I need to find a Groupon deal for tickets)
*Bake a pumpkin, roast pumpkin seeds, carve or paint a pumpkin
*Visit Callahan park (one of my faves!) to collect leaves
*Ferrari Farms Pumpkin Patch (this one is FREE and simple, but fun)
*Corley Ranch Pumpkin Patch (I may change this to the Andelin Farm since Corley didn't plant the corn field due to the drought)
Along the lines of pumpkin:
*Pumpkin Spice Lattes (x1 every day all fall)
*Pumpkin Scones (done!)
*Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins
*Pumpkin puree (enough to freeze for later months)
Here's our "little" family at the Balloon Races ^^^
My kiddos at the Air Races ^^^
Levi LOVED watching the planes fly ^^^
My kids and their friends watching the soccer ball balloon (which they rode in) inflate at the soccer fields ^^^
Fall is so fun. And since we homeschool, we can do things during the week, too (like the air races on a Friday, or the balloon ride on a Thursday)! It's the best!
What's on your bucket list this fall? What fun things do you have planned?
