Fall Family Bucket List

Alright so at the start of summer I made a bucket list for our family, but we have had a crazy summer so we didn’t get to everything. I’m just going to add those to next summer and get ready for my FAVORITE time of year…



Again this is the first Fall with our little girl and she, and since she is now 8 months old our options for activities are growing! Here’s what I hope to do before the winter and the “Christmas Season” sets in.

  • Go Apple Picking and make homemade applesauce and pie
  • Take Family pictures surrounded in leaves and trees
  • Visit a pumpkin patch
  • Complete a corn maze
  • Paint Pumpkins (More to come on this but I hate carving pumpkins)
  • Go for our first family hike
  • Go to a Harvest Festival
  • Go on a Hay Ride
  • Make Candy Apples
  • Go to a Football Game
  • Trick or Treat for Halloween
  • Enjoy a Foggy Morning Walk with Hot Apple Cider
  • Take a scenic drive
  • Charlotte’s first Thanksgiving
  • Drive through a Covered Bridge (Oregon is full of them and they are even more gorgeous with the Fall foliage)
  • Make a Handprint Turkey with Charlotte
  • Be Thankful for our beautiful little family


What do you all have planned for this wonderful time of year?

Love Always,



Summer Bucket List


This is our first summer with our little Charlotte and as a little family and I could not be more excited! She will be 6 months July 8th so I think she will be a super fun age to do some of these things with (and some of them I will admit are more for me to experience with her). We live in the Pacific Northwest but I think a lot of these will work for mostly anywhere. So here it is:

Blackberry Picking


Go swimming (either a lake or river)

Trip to the coast (her first time seeing the Ocean)

Have a picnic

Attend an Outdoor movie or concert

Hike around Silver Falls State Park

Play at the Splash Pad

Ride the Carousel

Dallas Drive-in Theatre

4th of July Fireworks Show

First Road Trip

Finger Paint Outside

Feed the Ducks

Farmer’s Market

Lawn Seats at the Baseball Game

Logging Museum (Camp 18; this is the hubby’s contribution)

More Zoo Trips!


What do you all have planned for the summer? Any suggestions I should add to my list?

P.S My husband has no idea what I have in store for him.

Love Always,
