Fall Fun List Update
Quick Fall Fun check in... We've made some progress on our family list!
hiking GA football! apple picking saturday soup night apple cider pumpkin patch Athens visit decorate pumpkins s'mores in fire pit pumpkin pancakes leaf art jump in leaves make bird feeders nature walk/ scavenger hunt make a fall dessert costumes! family movie night first fire Zoo & Botanical Gardens fall keepsake craft
Let's start with the obvious! OF COURSE we've been cheering on the Dawgs!
We've kicked off Saturday soup night.
We took a break from BFiaR and had an "Autumn" week of activities, which included handprint leaves (our keepsake craft) and two leaf art "masterpieces." :)
We made our annual Athens visit, including a pumpkin patch stop.
This year we ate lunch with Uncle Zach and saw his awesome college house. We also stopped by our old campus ministry stomping ground and visited with our campus ministers Nathan and Franklin (<who married us!). We visited with Sanctuary Youth alum over afternoon froyo, a quick trip to the Athens zoo, and dinner at the weirdest Mexican restaurant I've ever encountered. :) Fun, full day!
Daddy made pumpkin pancakes. More of those in our near future, I'm sure!
We went on a beautiful fall hike at Kennesaw Mountain. Our super troopers made it about three miles... with some carrying thrown in there!
We wrapped up our first season of fall ball. (spoiler alert: to-die-for picture ahead)
Just this weekend, we visited a second pumpkin patch at a local family farm as a festive LifeGroup outing. It was a gorgeous day- we played on the hay barrel slides, zip line, and corn maze, and took a hay ride.
Our extra credit so far: Sanctuary's Hayes Fall Festival fun. We got to help celebrate fall and share Jesus' love with some family fun at a local elementary school. I think Reed and Molly "favorited" the petting zoo.
After a glorious burst of fall air to invite the start of autumn, we had some warmer temps return. :( Now that the cool fall fun is back it feels like we're just getting started! Bring it on! :)
