Fall Bucket List

Hello, fall! We’ve officially been in the season for a few weeks, but it’s only just now starting to feel like fall.

This will be my 8th year living in Ohio, and Im just now starting to get used to the seasons. When I first moved to Ohio from Africa, I hated winter and absolutely dreaded it. The only season I really loved was summer. So to me fall was the end of “my season” and the beginning of the long road to winter and I didn’t enjoy it much.

8 year later, I am really starting to enjoy fall and get into the spirit of it! I understand why people LOVE fall so much. My favorite fall days are the ones that are chilly in the mornings and evenings, but still warm in the afternoon.

Along with all the rest of America, I made a fall bucket list and just though I would share it here. There is nothing too original about it, just something that the kids and I threw together to look forward to this season.

Here is our short, sweet and simple Fall Bucket List:

  • Go to a pumpkin patch and pick out pumpkins
  • Go on a hike and find different types of leaves
  • Play a board game by the fire
  • Go trick or treating
  • Celebrate Thanksgiving
  • Jump into a BIG pile of leaves
  • Celebrate Hezekiah’s FIRST birthday
  • Go on a hayride
  • Go to a fall festival
  • Run/cheer at the half marathon
  • Bake apple/pumpkin treats
  • Take family pictures
  • Carve a pumpkin
  • Decorate the house for fall
  • Go to a corn maze
