We started this October with a family sick day which is really no fun. But on the bright side, Matt stayed home from work yesterday which gave us an extra day with him; I will take an extra day home with him no matter what. During my time at home yesterday I started thinking about what I want to do this October. This year will be different than most because Sommer is here with us and I am excited to introduce her to all that October has to offer. I know she is just teeny and she won't remember this time in her life, but I still want her to experience the beauty of this time of year.
Here is my October List:
Visit a pumpkin patch
Pick our own pumpkins
Take a hay ride
Take family pictures
Drink apple cider - both hot and cold
Make and eat butternut squash soup
Take a trip to look at the colorful leaves
Go to a high school football game
Attend a band competition
Pass out candy with Carrie on trick or treat night (& drink hot chocolate with homemade whip cream)
Enjoy crisp, cool morning runs
Have a campfire
Take a hike on a beautifully tree-lined path
Do you have any plans for your October?
