'Tis the season: Hay rides, haunted houses and pumpkin picking!

It's the season for all things fall.... Hay rides, haunted houses, corn mazes, pumpkin picking & jack-o-lantern making! What is your favorite fall activity?

My kids and I always enjoyed going to the pick-your-own pumpkin farm when they were little. We could pick whatever pumpkins we wanted right from the field and straight off the vine. Now that they're older, my adult kids love going to haunted houses. My younger son and I won't do that though, we hate being scared. So we'll stay home and watch tame Halloween movies like Hocus Pocus and Bewitched. We all do have fun at the corn maze though and we all love driving up into the mountains to see the changing leaves and hear the elk calls.

Hard to say... Between going to the pumpkin patch and doing their corn maze, finding a pumpkin (which is boiled down for pie), and playing in fall leaves... I don't know if I can pick just one!

sitting here reading about budgetary policy isn't my idea of fun.  But thinking back to when my kids were little, I love hay rides, corn mazes and pumpkin picking.  I especially loved the slow cooker wassail I made for Halloween night.  I'm a city girl so this stuff was foreign to me.  I got to live suburbia thru my kids

    I don't do much because there isn't really anything to do.  We never when to the pumpkin patches because the pumpkins were so much more expensive then they are at the store.

     This year I don't know.  My husband might come up with something.  I have a feeling that he wanted to so something this weekend but somewhere I have cough a stumic bug so running around doesn't sound like a good idea.
