And while we were in the attic, we found some Halloween decor. 🙂 I couldn’t resist putting out just a couple touches to get us in the spirit.
We decided to make a little road trip to go apple-picking, we have never been before since there really isn’t anywhere to go near us, but love strawberry picking so much that we really wanted to make it happen. So we made the hour & half drive (with potty and breastfeeding breaks added on!), and met my husband’s sister and her kids there. We had so much fun, Waverly loved exploring and running endlessly through the fields, just don’t ask how many apples we brought home. There were only about a dozen in the entire place, and those were rotten. So really, we went apple-picking, minus the apples part. 😉
1 – Go on a family hike.
1 – Plan and get the girls first Halloween costumes together!! I am definitely going to dress them together, at least this year, my mom used to dress my brother & I alike (we were Pebbles and Bam-Bam, Mickey and Minnie!), so I have to pass down the tradition.
3 – Carve pumpkins & let Waverly go to town decorating her own.
4 – Make a giant leaf pile, one of my favorite memories at my grandparents house as a kid!
5 – Visit the pumpkin patch and take a hayride.
6 – Bake a pie. I’m really, really going to try to do this, I have no patience when it comes to cooking but I know Waverly would love helping and would pay attention for at least five minutes. 😉
7 – Make a bonfire in the backyard with s’mores.
8 – Have a family football day, with all of us watching together. My brother & dad are superstitious and will usually only watch it on their own, hoping we can convince them, ROLL TIDE!
9 – Pick leaves & let Waverly paint them.
10 – Take a picture of Avalon’s little body in a pumpkin.
11 – Make LOTS of soups in the crock-pot, our favorite.
12 – Watch a scary movie together as a family.
13 – Date night! We are due, is it bad that I need to include this on a bucket list?!
14 – Participate in a food drive & start teaching Waverly how to give back and help others.
15 – Go pick out a new Halloween/fall book for our collection!
So there you have it, some things I hope we can make happen in the near future, one day at a time! What are some of your favorite fall traditions? Happy, happy week ahead! XO
