In California, autumn isn’t quite like the autumn I grew up with in Michigan, but it’s still my favorite season by far. Despite the eighty-degree heat in the afternoons, I will bust out my fall boots and colorful scarves, because post-baby body or not, boots and scarves always fit.
Even though I am ridiculously busy right now with my new SAHM/WAHM/WOHM employment status, I have fun fall activities planned. Here is my Autumn Bucket List for 2014.
- Decorate! First and foremost, you know I do it up right with the fall decorations. Even though I’m just itching to paint something, I know I won’t have time for a new fall décor project this year. So I will try my hardest to avoid Pinterest and just put up my fall décor awesomeness from previous years.
- Visit the Pumpkin Patch! One of my favorite fall activities is taking Quinn to the pumpkin patch.
My friends and I have done this every year since our preschoolers were babies. The kids wear their costumes
while we go on hay rides, run through the pumpkins, and take a bazillion
photos, in which not a single child is looking at the camera. We all have
second babies now, so this year should be extra interesting. Even if we have to
plop down into a pile of dirty hay to nurse the babies, we’re doing this! And if
we can get a group photo of the “Bigs” and “Littles” in their costumes, it will
be a Halloween miracle.
