Why is it that the best times of the year have to go by so fast?! The last 3 months of the year are my absolute favorite… there is so much activity and so many fun things to do. The hot Georgia weather finally starts to cool down. I love cool, crisp mornings and days where I can snuggle in a sweater with a hot beverage. We don’t really ever get to do all the things we would like to do during this magical time of year but I do like to create a list each year to make sure we do as many of our favorite things as possible.
Take advantage of the 25 miles of paved biking trails on nearby Jekyll Island.
I want Jim and I to have some biking dates while the girls are at school.
After dinner bike rides around the neighborhood as a family
I love our little neighborhood, there are so many beautiful trees and during the Fall it is spectacular. I just love it when the leaves start falling. There is nothing like the crunch of a leaf to let you know Fall is here.
It’s always a fun tradition to visit a farm and get lost in a corn maze for an hour! Jim and I always enjoyed doing haunted corn mazes at night, but not quite sure the girls are up for that yet! 🙂
Picking out our pumpkins to carve and to paint! The girls absolutely love painting small pumpkins.
Spend at least one evening each week with the fire pit!
Go on a Hay Ride.
Who doesn’t love a hayride?
Go to a Fall Festival.
Fall festivals always remind me of being a kid. Lots of super fun memories for me.
Go trick or treating.
Our neighborhood has a very Gilmorish feel during the Fall. I love how the whole community goes all out for Halloween.
Go on family hikes
We’ve only been able to do short, 1 mile or so, hikes so far. Maybe the girls can hold on for longer hikes this year.
Lily has requested we make Candy Apples.
Watch Hocus Pocus!
Host a outdoor dinner party/Friendsgiving!
This is something Jim and I have been wanting to do for a couple of years. Friendsgiving suggestions are welcome in the comments!
Go to an outdoor concert
I like concerts and beautiful fall evenings, seems like a perfect match to me!
I would love to hear something you are planning to do this Fall!
