I am BEYOND thrilled right now! The weather has cooled off, the leaves are beginning to change, and apples are ripe for the pickin'. That could mean only one thing....it's FALL!!!
This is by-far my favorite time of year, the just air smells so crisp and clean (especially in my Granolaville). Of course I AM a bit biased. In a few weeks I get to celebrate a ton of awesome birthdays, including my son who's turning 2, and your very own crunchy friend is gonna be 31!
Not only is autumn the perfect transition into the cold winter months, but it also offers up a slew of ways to appreciate nature while having fun with your family.
Check out these fantastic 8 ways to celebrate Fall with the family!
1. Collect Leaves
I LOVE seeing the changing of the leaves from a deep green to bright oranges, reds and yellows. Take your kids through your backyard, neighborhood, or local park to gather their favorites. Make a leaf collage or decorate your home. It's a great way you bring the outdoors in.
2. Pick Your Own Pumpkinssite can help you find a patch near you!
3. Bakethis recipe for twice baked apples.
4. Decoration Partywarm apple cider. Here's a fun and simple way to dress up your front door in the spirit of Halloween.
5. Visit a Farmers Market
Fall is a great time of year to remind your family that there's nothing better than REAL food. Check out the sights and smells of your local farmer's market before they close up for the season. Let the kids pick out fresh vegetables like sweet potatoes for a tastey soup.
