Yesterday my little family and I got out to enjoy the beautiful fall weather before it disappears. We started our day by picking up some coffee and heading out for a fall drive through a local forest. It was a calm, cool morning and perfect for a drive. After our drive we went home so I could pack a picnic.
I didn’t have time like I had planned to make our lunch this time, so we opted to grab some Panera instead, with homemade pumpkin bars for dessert. Sometimes keeping it simple is the way to go. I packed our basket with everything we needed, we picked up our food and went to a park on a lake. It was so much fun! I’ve always wanted to go on a fall picnic. I loved all of it! Once we were finished eating, the kids played at the playground for a bit and then we went for a walk along the lake and down by the water. The kids were having so much fun.
We still needed to run an errands, so we had to leave the lake and the kids weren’t very happy about that, but once we were home we played in the leaves out in the backyard. Even that was fun and we were able to cross two activities off of our Fall Bucket List!
So far, this fall has been magic! I can’t wait for what’s next!
