Fall is one of my favorite times of year. The season is filled with so many traditions from my childhood and so many fond memories since. As a child I looked forward to creatively carving pumpkins and the tradition of roasting the pumpkin seeds after. I still love roasted pumpkin seeds and now my children do too. As a teenager I loved fall and the high school football games. I was in the marching band and on crisp fall evenings I can close my eyes and picture the lights of the football field and hear the band playing. As an adult, since having children of my own, we have continued old traditions and started new fall activities like heading to the cider mill and visiting the pumpkin patch each year. No matter your traditions, fall is a great time of year to get outdoors and have some fun. I’ve made a Fall Fun Bucket List with some of my favorite fall activities.
Fall Fun Activities List
Since my niece and nephew were toddlers, they are now in their mid 20’s with children of their own, we’ve been taking the kids in the family to the same cider mill. It’s a wonderful place that gets better every year with horse drawn wagon rides through the apple orchard, a huge pumpkin patch, fresh hot apple cider donuts, a corn maze, and of course, the cider press. There’s a gift shop and bakery, a play area for young children, a winery for grown ups, and so much more.
This photo was taken several years ago in the apple orchard, before the little boys had come along. It’s still one of my favorites today. Apple picking is such a fun fall activity!

Take some time this fall to connect with your family. Get outside on the weekends and evenings and check some fun fall activities off your Fall Fun Bucket List. Raking leaves into a pile and jumping in them requires you to let go and have some fun and that is what this is all about. Be silly, wild, and free!
