Apple Orchard- We love to go to apple picking with the kids! Or as Landon has called it, “apple hunting.” 😂
Hayride- There’s a fun fall festival at Mapleside Farms every year where the kids can go on a hayride and tractor pull ride. They love it! It’s so much fun!
Hayslide- At Mapleside Farms, there is also the world’s longest Hayslide, where you ride in potato sacks down a steep hill into the apple orchard. This was the first year Presley got to ride on it, and we had so much fun! Landon didn’t want us to stop.
Pumpkin Patch- Fall could not be complete without going to the pumpkin patch and picking out pumpkins with the kids.
Decorate the Front Porch- I love putting out my pumpkins and mums out front, and this year I went with some neutral colored pumpkins and all wine and purple mums, and I loved the look of it! I might have to replicate that again in the future.
Fall family photos- This year we took pictures in an old truck, and they turned out so cute! I love having seasonal ones to display every time I change the decor around my house, which I do every season and holiday!
Not-So-Scary Movie Night- Landon has recently been so interested in Harry Potter, so we have been reading the first book, and we watched the first movie together, and he’s since asked to watch it almost every day, so I think we’ve watched it three times already at this point. But I love putting on PJs (these brother sister skeleton pajamas are my favorite for the kids this year), making popcorn and snacks and cuddling up under a blanket to watch one of my favorite movies.
Halloween Costume Party- We’re lucky that our friends throw a fun fall party where the kids wear costumes, but we also love going to the Boo At the Zoo Costume Party here in Cleveland! I would highly recommend taking your little ones if you live in the Cleveland area. And our costumes just came in the mail last week- I can’t wait for you to see what we’re being!
Halloween at Disney– We’re huge Disney nuts (we honeymooned there, and the kids have been to Disneyland and Disney World every year since they’ve been born), but we’ve never gone during Fall to see the Halloween decorations. We went to Disneyland, it was so cute! I am already wanting to plan a trip for next Fall.
Haunted House- This would be a fun date night for me and Adam, but I loved going to the Haunted Houses back in high school. Such an excuse to cuddle as you walk through a creepy house.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes- It wouldn’t be Fall without having one of these! Personally, I’m not the biggest PSL lover (it tastes different to me all of a sudden, not sure if my tastes have changed), so I’ve discovered that 2 pumps vanilla and 2 pumps pumpkin spice tastes better to me!
Eat Caramel Apples- This is my personal favorite. Caramel Apples are one of my favorite desserts, and they are always the best in the fall! At Disneyland with my friend Tara and her family, we got these fancy Disney-inspired chocolate and caramel apples twice, and she couldn’t believe I could eat the whole thing because they were HUGE. But, I seriously love them!
Trick-or-Treating- With the kids, we love taking them around the neighborhood for some treats. And maybe we’ll do the Jimmy Kimmel I told my kid I ate all their Halloween candy and film it again this year. Landon was a pretty good sport last year…
What are some of your favorite things to do in the fall? Please comment so we can all get more fun ideas to add to the bucket list for this year or next year!

I’ll be ever grateful that God have me some very sweet little voices who sang to me tonight. ✨I’m so grateful to have had a weekend surrounded with love and family and friends to ring in year 32. Thank you @abcdeelearning for planning a magical day of Christmas activities for all these kids- I know my dad would be smiling down seeing his grandchildren so happy. (especially Presley as a Christmas tree- I’ve never seen her so excited!) 31 was the
8 hours agoby bitsofbriReal talk: what do you really want for Christmas as a mom this year? ✨ Be honest, Santa’s watching all this mama wants for Christmas is sleep and a week off of cleaning and laundry duty. I need a break to just be with my babies. My perfectionist ways often trap me into a cycle of trying to do it all, be it all, please them all, and some days I love it and can manage lots, and some days I wake up and can’t even force myself out of bed because I’m so burnt out.
