Fun Fall Family Activities

Perhaps one of the loveliest times of year is the fall season.  The leaves are changing, the air is cooler, and those golden-orange pumpkin patches are making their appearance.  Cool green hues of summer give way to fall's brilliant reds, plums and golds.  There's a smokiness evident in the air from the wood burning stoves, cozy warm fires and spicy hot cider.  We may rise early to cool, damp mornings which warm later as just a wash of sunshine creates a glorious crisp fall day.  Just think of the many wonderful sights, smells and sounds of fall.  From hot apple cider, warm pumpkin bread, delicious caramel apples to crackling fall leaves, cozy warm fires and soft warm sweaters, there's so much to love about the fantastic fall season.  Just grab your best comfy sweater, relax with a cup of hot chocolate and start planning some fun activities and delicious food for the fall season.
