Although summer is my favorite season by far as I am a beach girl, there are many reasons why I look forward to fall.
1) Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino’s at Starbucks.
Now, if you aren’t a frappuccino kind of person that’s okay too. There are many pumpkin flavored drinks not only at Starbucks but also other coffee places such as Dunkin’ Donuts. A pumpkin spice latte makes a great start to the day on the way to work if you’re looking for a hot beverage for the cool fall morning.
2) All the fun things you can do with pumpkins!!!
From going to the pumpkin patch and picking out all the perfect sized pumpkins to making pumpkin pies and roasting pumpkin seeds, nothing is better than all the fun that can be had with this food. My personal favorite is carving pumpkins on Halloween night and putting a candle inside for the neighborhood to see the creation. You can also have competitions with your kids or friends as to who can carve the best pumpkin, or the scariest pumpkin, or the funniest.
3) Going on long walks admiring the beautiful colored leaves in the trees and hearing them crunching beneath my feet.
4) Going to haunted houses & corn mazes during the month of October!!!
There are so many different mazes that can be found and haunted houses. There are even haunted hayrides at many farms during the month of October. If you really look, you don’t have to go to the same one once in a few years time. In the United States the employes can’t touch you in haunted houses, however if you ever go to a haunted house in Canada, watch out for your feet-you may feel someone grab or touch them to try and scare you! Corn mazes are a lot of fun and most places have easy, medium and difficult levels for you to go through. If you’re really looking for an added scare go during dusk and go through the easy and medium leveled ones so by the time you get to the difficult one it is dark out. Just be sure to remember your flashlights! Here are some pictures of these fun haunted activities.
5) Apple picking.
Most places that allow you to pick apples will also have fresh apple cider, hot apple cider and other apple products such as pies and applesauce. Just as there is much that can be done with pumpkins the same is true for apples.
