The Greatest Autumn Bucket List of 2016

The Greatest Autumn Bucket List of 2016

A serious must to get the most out of your Autumn season!

How many can you honestly say you've already done this season? So far 13 but I can't blame myself though! Here in Southern California Mother Nature thinks its summer.. " The land of summer " I call it. I miss the seasons. I feel so backwards here. I know once we move we will be shaking in our boots when we experience any weather under 70 degrees but I think thats a given.  

It feels like just yesterday Immy (who is 5 now) just turned one in this picture and we were waiting for Skyler to come home from deployment. 2012 was a crazy year but so much fun! That fall season was so fun. The anticipation of waiting for Deployment coming to an end and being able to have our family under one roof. I will say this. The one thing you never tire of in the military is that you get to experience your first kiss more than once. Most would call me crazy but I would do it all over again to experience a first kiss like that again. Anyways enjoy the season and the cold weather! For those of us who live in the land of summer we can only hope mother nature will throw in a few below 80 degrees in here and there but until December you can expect at least one or two 90 degree days in the months that you would think would be colder. California has been good to us but I am counting down the days till we move on to better things. On to the next chapter of life.

October Calendar

So I am a few days late on posting this cute calendar download but I'm better late than ever! I can't believe its October! Where has the time gone but also it feels like it took forever to finally get here! How does that even happen? I dont think we'll ever know! We have so much planned this month! This weekend we are heading to Big Bear Lake to get our real first experience of the autumn weather this season and indulge in the fall foliage. Its been since Autumn 2013 that I have seen any kind of autumn weather besides leaving turning from green to dead so you can imagine how excited I am!

We are also picking pumpkins from Cal Poly farm store in pomona from their pumpkin patch they do every year. We have a friend from our church that manages the store and its a huge hit each Autumn season. Hundreds attend every year and you wouldn't believe how crazy it gets! People have to park miles away toting their kids in wagons and strollers just to pick these amazing pumpkins!

And we can't forget going to Oak Glen cider mill for apple cider donuts and Snow Lined Orchard for apple picking. The girls love apples. Ivy has always been a huge fan of apples we find her sneaking into the kitchen getting her late night snack or her " late night apple " every night. And as gross as it may be finding apple cores sitting on her dresser in the morning it is nice knowing she likes to pick healthy snacks. Speaking of healthy snacks this last week Imogen also learned about apples at school. She talked all week long of Johnny apple seed and how " An apple a day keeps the doctor away " wouldn't you know she can't get enough of apples now. So 10 dollars worth of honey crisp apples later we have two healthy little eaters! Yay for that! 

With that being said I hope you have an incredible autumn season! Enjoy the fall foliage wherever you are and eat lots of pumpkin anything this season! Be sure to click the button below the calendar image above to get your October Calendar download!
