The Fall Bucket List

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Over the weekend, we had the opportunity to tick off quite a few items on our fall bucket list.

Friday night, we piled in the car and hit up my hometown's homecoming football game. My youngest brother, C's Uncle T, is a senior this year, and was on the homecoming court. Coronation was at halftime of the game, and while he didn't take home the crown, we had lots of fun watching all of the festivities and cheering the Wildcats to a homecoming victory.

Saturday was the perfect day to get some fresh air and head out to the field for C's first combine ride of the season. From the moment he saw the combine harvesting beans across the field, he was a man on a mission. Grabbing hold of both T & I's hands, C marched us lickety-split across the field to investigate what was going on and see if he could get a ride. Luckily, nearly my entire family was on hand and all were more than happy to oblige.

In between adventures, C got to play with cousin J and learned important things like how to pull a wagon, how to play the piano, and how to speak 'truck', cousin J's language of choice.

To round out the weekend, we snuck in a morning trip to the Community Orchard where there is an amazing fall playground area set up for kiddos and adults alike. I seriously think that T may have had more fun than C! There was a pedal cart track, corn box, bounce pad, train playground, swings, animals to see, and even a multi-level goat playground! C tried feeding the goats, but decided he'd rather view from afar than get his fingers nipped. It was a chilly morning, but luckily, the timing was perfect to warm up inside afterwards with a warm apple dumpling/slice of caramel apple pecan pie/hot apple cider/autumn spice coffee/etc., or if you were a little guy, a hot grilled cheese from a perch on Grandma's lap!

Happy Fall everyone!
