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?
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:
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
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.
