I love October. It might be my most favorite month of the year. There are some things you can only do in the fall...
This weekend I took my kids out of the manicured lawns and concrete sidewalk world that they live in, and visited a farm.
We rode a hayride through the woods, ran through tunnels made of hay and corn, and picked out multi-colored gourds and the biggest pumpkins we could find.
Then it was home to carve them. We all had fun scooping out the insides. Here are a few of our creations....
I coated the pumpkin seeds in a mixture of butter, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and a dash of nutmeg. After baking them, I must admit it turned out better than I thought it would!
As a fun treat, we had orange vanilla flavored TruMoo milk. I got a free coupon, and was more than happy to pick it up at my local grocery store. My kids thought it was so cool and tasted great, and it definitely went with our pumpkin orange themed day.
here, TruMoo is running a contest right now where you can win a Goosebumps Haunted Hollywood Vacation. My youngest is a big fan of the books, so we are trying the codes found on the lids to see if we won...wish us luck!
Our family is really enjoying this time of year.
What is your favorite fall activities!
