autumn bucket list + printable

It's autumntime! Do you know what that means for southern California? Absolutely nothing!

My mom sent me that joke on the equinox and I thought it was too good not to share. It's funny because it's true, right? Not many changes happen around here as far as seasons go -- our days will continue to be 80-90 degrees for at least another month -- but I'm not letting that stop me from getting into the festive spirit and eating soup every day.

It's well known that autumn is one of the more favorite times of the year. The colors of the world are literally changing all around us. I have always wanted to make a seasonal bucket list and now that I have kids, especially as Bruce is getting older and capable of doing/understanding more, I think the importance of creating traditions and planning fun activities for him to do is growing.

Now, without further ado, I give you my autumn 2018 bucket list! Please let me know what you think of it. Did I miss anything? What would you add to your own list?

  9. I love all of these ideas! Do you have a printable version of your Fall bucket list? I'd love to see how many we can do as a family too!

    Our kids LOVE traditions and some of the Fall traditions that they look forward to each year are to make apple caramels and to "Boo" the neighbors with treats.

    1. I made a printable just for you and added a link to the top of this post! Thanks for asking. I wanted to do a printable but wasn't sure how to go about making one. You provided the push I needed :)

      I loved "boo"ing neighbors as a kid, too!
