Fall Is Here!

Happy 1st day of October!  We don’t know about you, but fall is our favorite season.  There was a book that our mom used to read to us when we were little called “My Book of the Season” by Stephanie Calmenson.  It pretty much sums up everything we love about the fall:

“Fall is here.  Can you feel it? Crisp cool air – better put on your jacket!  Can you taste it?  Crunchy red apples best picked from the tree.  Can you smell it?  Spicy pumpkin pie baking in the oven. Can you see it?  Can you hear?  Bright-colored leaves rustling when you walk.  Fall is here!”

There are so many things we look forward to doing during the Autumn Season.  Check out our Fall Activity List below for some ideas.  If you have kids they will enjoy doing these activities and crossing them off the list.   If you would like us to email you this printable, subscribe to our blog and leave a comment letting us know you would like one!

If you are in the Southern California area we highly recommend visiting Julian and/or Oak Glenn for apple picking and pie!  If you have some time for a small vacation, head up the coast to Avila Beach and stop at the Avila Village Barn.

Here are some photos to get you in the fall spirit and some ideas to inspire you!

Apple Crisp is one of Alisa’s favorite desserts to make in the fall!

Love going to Avila Valley Barn during this time of year.  They have a pumpkin patch, petting zoo, fresh apple cider, fruit and much more!

Pumpkin Patch

Fall foliage planted in a rustic wheel barrow on the porch is the perfect way to welcome guests.

Make a day out of it and take your family to a pumpkin patch.  Have a pumpkin carving contest and be sure to roast the pumpkin seeds for a treat!


Go apple picking and make caramel apples, homemade apple sauce or apple crisp!

Our top reason for why we love the fall so much…Marissa and Mark were blessed with the arrival of this sweet little guy last fall!  Can’t believe he is almost one!  Love him so much!
