Fall is the absolute best season ever! For us that have to endure snow and slush and cold temperatures in the winter, and for those of us who then watch the snow melt into sloppy puddles of mud with the skies dumping rain for endless days in the spring… fall is freaking amazing! Can I get a hallelujah?
Seriously though, pumpkin spice lattes may be the best coffee drink ever created! And who wouldn’t be in awe as the leaves turn from green into a vibrant colorscape of rich orange, yellow and red? And mums! And pumpkins! And carving pumpkins! Cool mornings and perfectly tempered, sunny afternoons. I’m not necessarily an outdoorsy kinda girl, but in the fall all I want to do is be outside with my family during this beautiful season.
So to celebrate fall and family, I’ve compiled some great ways for you to laugh, learn, explore, exercise, and have some fall family fun!
