Fall is in the air here in Utah!! The leaves on the mountains are changing and gorgeous, and the temperatures have definitely decided to drop this week! Let’s just hope the snow doesn’t make an appearance anytime soon. One of my favorite things about Fall is all the fun family traditions + events, so today I thought it would be fun to share our Fall Bucket List with some of our favorites from years past as well as some of your recommendations we are excited to try!
. . . OUR FALL FAMILY BUCKET LIST . . .
:: PICKING OUT PUMPKINS AT OUR LOCAL PUMPKIN PATCH
This is by far one of our fall favorites. We usually end up going to the pumpkin patch 2-3 times before the season is over because it is so fun for the kids. If you remember last year, Harper was terrified of pumpkins (so funny + sad), so hopefully she has warmed up to them this year! I love that it is a great way to support your local community + neighbors too.
:: “BOO-ING” OUR FRIENDS + NEIGHBORS
I shared about this last year and it is SO SO fun! You can make cookies or just put together a bag of treats from the store. Once you get your treat together, you doorbell ditch them leaving the treat behind with a little note that says “You’ve been boo’d”! My kids absolutely love doing it and it is a great little “secret service”.
:: CARVING OR PAINTING PUMPKINS
This is another one that is always at the top of the family list. We usually invite my sisters and their little families over and make a night out of it. With all the babies, we usually opt for painting pumpkins over carving, but either way is such a fun way to get creative or competitive with your family.
:: TAKING A DRIVE TO SEE THE FALL LEAVES
The mountains here in Northern Utah in the Fall are my absolute favorite. With all the leaves changing they are gorgeous! I love bundling up in the van and taking a drive through the canyon to see them.
:: DECORATE HALLOWEEN SUGAR COOKIES
It isn’t a holiday without sugar cookie decorating, am I right?! My little people love decorating (and eating) sugar cookies, and it is an easy delicious way to make things fun for any holiday.
. . . MY FALL BUCKET LIST . . .
Right along with our family bucket list, I decided to make a personal bucket list (that kind of turns into a little bit of a to-do list). Things I want to get done around the house, accomplish here on the blog, and of course a few fun ones!
:: DECORATE OUR PORCH FOR FALL
I LOVE decorating our front porch for the different seasons, especially fall! Fun corn stalks, pumpkins, hay, I love it!! Stick around because I’ll be sharing some of my favorite fall decor next week!
:: TAKE A GIRLS TRIP
I love a good girls trip!! This coming weekend my sisters and I are headed down to St. George for a girls trip and I cannot wait!! Love catching up with them, relaxing, and doing our favorite things together!
:: CLEAN OUT + UPDATE KIDS CLOSETS
This one falls a little more in the “to-do” category, but it is something I love getting done. With the new season and growing kids, I like to try to clean out their closets every season. But the fun part about cleaning them out is getting to pull out + stock up on our fall favorites. I usually try to stock up on all our fall needs at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Over the years I have learned that Nordstrom has the best fall basics for kids, from great cardigans for layering to some of the cutest boots and booties! You’ll see in todays pictures they have something for everyone! I love that I can just order online and do free shipping or curbside pickup while I’m running errands so it is quick and easy to update closets!
