With Fall Break underway, I took one more day off from work. This time, it was focused on the kids and having some good, old-fashioned, fall fun!
Before I left the news, I used to take at least one afternoon a week to do something fun with the kids. In the fall, we usually headed to the orchard. Working "normal hours," means that I don't have free afternoons, but that doesn't stop us from getting creative when it comes to making memories.
We've got a few more trips to the orchard planned, so I didn't torture the kids with matching outfits. Instead, we enjoyed the sunshine and playing outside.
The kiddie pools full of corn is always a hit. I would bury a toy and they would race to uncover it.
When that got old, I made up an obstacle course for them to finish. They races, then I timed them, then they made their one courses. It was a lot of fun.
We wrapped up the trip by picking out a few small pumpkins to paint. You know that I'll document that family fun too. Haha!
