Our Favorite Fall(ish) Family Traditions

So the weather around here hasn't been exactly Fall-like, but that hasn't stopped us from doing all the fall things! And since I can't seem to get my act together to blog more than once a month, I'm combining all our fall fun in to one picture packed post.

Here are some of our favorite fall things to do as a family...

Visit a Pumpkin Patch (duh.) Our favorite is Blooms and Berries.

Go to a Pumpkin Festival. This was our first year going to an actual pumpkin festival. Does your town have one? We went to Operation Pumpkin and it was so much fun. There were amazing carved pumpkins and also the largest pumpkins I've ever seen in person. Think Cinderella and her pumpkin carriage she took to the ball.

Visit a Sunflower Field (Gorman Farm) Besides pumpkins, and maybe apples, sunflowers are my favorite thing about this season. Talk about photo opps! And sunflowers just make me smile so being in a field of them...can't stop smiling.

Find any opportunity to Trick or Treat/wear costumes in public (Hallzooween)
Our zoo has trick or treating every weekend in October so we picked a gloomy day with rain in the forecast so it wouldn't be very crowded. It was perfect and we had a Zookeeper and his pet monkey as our sidekicks.

Safe to say, it's been a good Fall so far. 
Now the weather just needs to cooperate and give us a few more fall feeling days! I
'm not ready for winter!
Please, please!

So cute! We aren't getting much of a fall either, but we don't get much of a winter either. Everyone stays sick because it goes from hot to cold and cold to hot! I'm ready for more fall days too!
