Every season we plan our family bucket list.  We usually do it at a family meeting.  I’d love to pretend that our family meetings are consistent but they are not.  We do seem to enjoy them however.  Our seasonal bucket list meeting is the best.  We list all of the things each of us want to do in order for it to be a successful couple of months.  Success is measured by doing things we enjoy.  I started this plan a couple of years ago when I realized I was overscheduling our holidays because I thought we all needed to do the super fun and festive activities that it turned out most of us didn’t actually need to do. Often what we find is that a few activities, some at home and some away are all we need to feel like the season is fun. Fall is certainly my favorite time to make lists of activities and we’ve already jumped in with gusto by doing some creek hopping and some fun apple picking.  I love that the fall is cool enough that we don’t get overheated but warm enough to be outside without being bundled up.  As a family we love to look at Halloween lights, which our town is particularly good at.  We like apple cider and evening fires with smores.  We love to take trips to the western part of our state to see the leaves.  

Even though most of our weekends are filled with sports we squeeze pumpkins and hikes and anything we can to get us outside. 

This week’s Pinterest board is focused on vacations and vacation homes and when I made it I was feeling the mountain and ocean vibe a bit heavily, but we will keep adding to it as we go along. Check it out and let us know what you think.

What about you?  What does your family love to do during this season? Drop us a comment and let us know! Remember that the Universe is always listening and wants to support your dreams.
