Autumn Checklist

The Balloon Classic last weekend, followed by several days of fall-like weather, has me super anxious for autumn.


After all that excitement, I'll admit, I was a little upset when the forecasted high this weekend was 90. But my walk to work this week was marked with quite a few trees already dropping yellow leaves! And when I got off my shift just after 8:00 this evening it was already cool and dark outside! I'd call that a sure sign of a fast approaching new season.

Our autumn is always full of so many great events and traditions, but I don't want to miss a thing this year! So, a while ago I compiled a list of all the autumn activities I have planned, which I've listed below.

+ Day hike on the Hull's Gulch Interpretive Trail

+ Watch the Balloon Classic from the park (and hills) — Done!

+ Take a camping and/or backpacking trip in the Sawtooths

+ Walk around Art in the Park (doing this in the morning!)

+ Eat and bake pumpkin flavored everything

+ Walk around the Hyde Park Street Fair

+ Find a good recipe for homemade apple cider

+ Decorate for Halloween

+ Visit a corn maze or pumpkin patch

+ Carve Pumpkins!

+ Make our halloween costumes (see last years here and here)

+ Go to an exhibit at the art museum

+ Go on more photo-adventures and start doing outfit posts again

Please come soon, new season. Because I really want to watch Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown again.

What are you most excited about this Fall?
