Memories to Record this October

Apple Picking Kids.jpg

It’s October.

Is it me or did this year go by really fast? The weather is changing and Fall colors everywhere. It’s the perfect time to get out and take some family photos, get in an end of year back yard cook out or just take a walk and enjoy the colors and crisp Fall air. September was all about finding a routine. The lazy days summer quickly turned into the busy days of school and work. This month I’m focusing on slowing down before the busy holiday season begins.

This month, and until the end of the year, is all about traditions. These are some activities that the boys and I look forward to every year to begin our holiday season.
