Enjoying the autumn season

September 10, 2012


There is something about the fall season that brings out the kid in all of us! Who doesn’t have memories of jumping into a huge pile of leaves that your dad spent all afternoon raking? What about the wonderful aromas that would come from the kitchen while mom was baking a delicious pumpkin pie?

Fall is a beautiful season to celebrate. The weather is getting cooler, the holidays are right around the corner, and everyone seems to be a little happier! (It could also be the fact that the kids are back in school and football season has started up again.)

So, how do you plan to enjoy this magical fall season? Here are some of our favorite things to do during the autumn months.
1. Go for a family bike ride. There is nothing better than getting a little exercise and breathing in the fresh fall air.
2. Bake a homemade pumpkin pie with the kids.
3. Visit a local farm or orchard and pick your own fruits and vegetables. There are plenty of places to do this activity. Your kids will have a new appreciation for the food they eat. http://www.pickyourown.org/FLwest.htm
4. Attend a football game at your local high school and cheer your team on.
5. Take a trip to your local farmer’s market. Then come home a break out your crock pot and make a hearty stew or soup for dinner.
6. Plan a neighborhood block party – the weather is perfect for being outdoors.
7. Have a picnic! Even if it is in your backyard, it is always fun to eat outside.
8. Host a football ‘tailgate’ party! Make your own salsa using fresh tomatoes – yummy!
9. Bake a batch of cookies or brownies and deliver it to your local fire station. Our fire fighters love homemade goodies
10. Volunteer to walk the dogs at your local humane society. The dogs LOVE playing in the cooler weather
The opportunities for fall-fun are endless!
