Have you planned any fun fall things to do in your city yet? Today is September 22, 2018, the official first day of fall. And surprisingly, I must admit I am super happy about that. Yesterday, I was going through all my pumpkins and decor when I realized its time to start some new family traditions and dates. Hope you enjoy our fall bucket list.

Every year we make it a tradition to attend at least one pumpkin patch even if it's at our local grocery store.  The point is to have our time together picking out big and small heads of corn and orange pumpkins. It is also custom that we cut them up and paint each and every last one of them.

 A few more of our family traditions are Harvest day at Moriah's school, and we make a big deal out of that day. No, seriously Rico and I both take off work, and the other girls will miss a half day of school. Not to mention we will be the first to grab tickets to see any Peanuts movie or anything that has the word cozy and fall. I know that sounds a bit weird, but I must admit this is the best season of them all.

 Those are a few things that we usually do every year, but this year I want to do more things. I guess its safe to say I am starting a new bucket list for our family this year and I am excited to share it with you guys. Besides sharing is caring right?

A couple of years ago we went apple picking, I discovered farm apples cost a bit more than store bought apples. We had so many bags that I gave them away to co-workers. It was sad yall. But it was a lesson learned. Besides I had good intentions of making apple fritters I just never got around to doing it.  :)

That's ok because this time around I will be doing things a little different.
New Fall Ideas:
  • Pecan picking: Yes its true I want to pick up and bag my own nuts this year. When I was a little girl back home in Louisiana, we had pecan trees everywhere. My grannie would have us kids picking and cracking nuts all every Fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas season. Back in the day, she made the best pecan pies, but my best memory is when my grammy would use a nutcracker to crack and eat pecans straight from the bag. I want to experience that with my kids while they are still home.

Other Planned Things:
  • Attend One Play: This year I am planning to take my whole family to see The Elf or The Christmas Carol on stage. 
We usually do outside movies, but this time I am focusing on more indoor budget-friendly things. 


  • Games: Connect Four, Chess, Checkers, Operation which are a few of our favorite games. Oh, and I must not forget spades.
  • Building A Family Fort:  Moriah has a tent in her room. So I've come up with an idea to have family nights on the sofa with blankets and pallets on the floor while watching movies.

  • Make Homemade Apple Cider: Simple Juice with diced apples and a little nutmeg. Then bring to a boil and add a cinnamon stick. Whipped cream optional.
  • More time at the library on movie nights.
  • Hot chocolate and pizza nights
  • Visit the Markets
  • The Texas State Fair which will start in about one week.
  • Decorate together

  • Taking A Scenic- Grab the family and ride around and watch all the people who have decorated their yards for the holidays.
  • Outdoor Activities: Possible Hiking and Scooter Riding Downtown

I know the holidays can get busy and pricey, but with a little planning I was able to plan in two paid events and the rest free stuff around the city.
Although I have listed quite a bit of things, each one will be done throughout the year, and on the days we all have off together. I know the holidays can get busy and pricey, but with a little planning, I was able to plan in two paid events and the rest free stuff around the city.

I will be leaving a little space just in case we hit the road, but for the most part, I am taking the rest of my year to relax and enjoy by any means necessary. Lastly, the change in seasons can be a bit overwhelming that is why I am focusing on our family dates and making time for one another. Therefore I look for things to do locally. 

There you have it our family fall traditions and date ideas.

What will you be doing this holiday season?

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
