Fun Fall Activities to Enjoy

Fall activities add to the coziness of fall

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. I love growing those deep heirloom pumpkins like ‘Cinderella’ to make it even more magical. Where we live in the Canadian mountains the changing colors of the trees is stunning.

  1. Our fall activities always include carving pumpkins, drinking hot apple cider, and winding through a straw bale maze (no corn mazes around here :)). I love getting cozy and preparing for winter while enjoying the autumn foliage.
