The Brown Family's Fall "Bucket List"

Fall is by far our favorite season, and today is officially the first day of Fall (even though the high temperature here in Greensboro is 84).  I love everything about Fall.  Sweaters, soup, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin anything actually! Scarves, leaves, cool weather, name it, we probably love it.  Changes in the seasons and holidays are sure to be even more fun this year, since Max is starting to understand what is going on around him a little better, so I decided to make a "bucket list" of things that we want to do this Fall. We may not get to all of them, but it just seemed like a good way of trying to make the absolute most of every day! We will be adding to this, I am sure, and I will be blogging about all of our adventures :)

1- Collect and press pretty fall leaves
2- Make a new wreath for the front door
3- Host a football game night
4- Drink lots of pumpkin spice lattes (decaf, for Baby Brown of course!)
5- Take walks around the neighborhood as often as possible
6- Bake an apple pie
7- Bake a pumpkin pie
8- Practice gratitude
9- Teach Max to sign "thank you"...he has become quite good at sign language! I need to make a post on that.
10- Go to a pumpkin patch
11- Decorate the house, inside and out, for fall and Halloween
12- Eat s'mores
13- Make these fall trees with Q-tips and paint
14- Go to the park at least once a week
15- Take more pictures
16- Make pumpkin cupcakes
17- Watch "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"
18- Go to the zoo!
19- Eat lots of homemade soup and chili
20- Burn fall scented candles
21- Take family photos
22- Make breakfast one morning when Nick is off work
23- Tackle the landscaping issues in the front of our house!  It is a mess out there...
24- Go trick-or-treating with Max
25- Make these sugar cookies decorated like skeletons!
26- Watch "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
27- Go to the Blue Ridge Parkway
