We’re just out here living our best life, because the best season is among us! FALL! I love everything that comes with this season, pumpkins, apple picking, apple cider donuts, corn mazes, hay rides, crisp air, copper tone leaves, the feeling of rejuvenation and of course, HOCUS POCUS!
Fall is the best time of year to get outside and enjoy the fresh air before winter’s chill numbs your fingers. It’s a great time to do all of these fun fall activities and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Enjoy autumn with one of these simple crafts or activities.
*Towards the end I’ll share pictures of our family day trip to Secor Farms*
Apple & Pumpkin Picking: It would be sacrilege to write a fall activities list without including a visit to a U-Pick farm, which is why it’s first on the list. Fall is a harvest season, which means, it’s an opportunity to pick pumpkins, apples, pears, and blackberries, and to indulge in home-baked apple pies and homemade apple cider. You’ll get the opportunity to try local & fresh produce.Earlier in the month we decided to have a day trip at Secor Farms in New Jersey. Please enjoy our family outing!
Make S’mores &Pies: Nothing screams fall more than Pies & S’mores. You can make apple, pumpkin, sweet potato, blueberry the choice is yours! Making s’mores and baking pies is a nice way to get together with family & friends while eating some delicious pastries.
Watch Scary Movies: Halloween Town Series , Hocus Pocus, ParaNorman, Coraline, Hotel Transylvania, Twitches, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Craft, Beetlejuice, The Addams Family, The Little Vampire, Corpse Bride, Casper, The Conjuring, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown etc. Pick any movie and have 31 night of horrors!
Visit a haunted house: Self explanatory. We have a plethora of haunted houses, mansion & prisons in which one can visit for a good scare!
Collect pine cones and twigs to make a fall decors:This has to be one of my favorite activities to do even though I lack any artistic ability. I have put together little decorations around our apartment.
Go for a walk around the neighborhood with your kids: Recently I’ve been doing this with my daughter and it has been delightful. I’ve always loved the foliage and now I get to enjoy them with my daughter.
Decorate a Pumpkin & Fall Decor: Whether you carve them or not, decorating a pumpkin is a must! I may or may not post a DIY on how to make simple fall decor signs. So stay tuned for that!
Make a pot of chili: Nothing says autumn like a belly full of chili. I love chili and the spicer it is the better. In a future post I’ll share my chili recipe.
What is your favorite part of fall? Do you have any favorite activities you enjoy doing with your family?
Until next time!

As promised here are the pictures! Enjoy!
As you can see, Secor Farms had a variety of pumpkins, gourds and fall decor galore! In addition, they had a section where they sold hamburgers, hot dogs, hot ciders, donuts and other types of food. I wish that Riley was a bit older so that she could have enjoyed the corn maze and the hay rides, but theres always next year! This for sure won’t be our last trip to the country side. We definitely want to go on a haunted hay ride and pick out some pumpkins since on this trip we were not able to.
