The first signs of fall are finally here and we're not taking our time to bring out the harvest wreaths and pumpkin spice candles. This year will be our first fall season to enjoy some lower temperatures on the mainland after living in Hawaii for the past several years. Our biggest and best plans for the next several months include chunky knit sweaters, the smell of warm pumpkin bread baking in the oven and walks down trails filled with leaves changing colors.
In the spirit of all things pumpkin spice, here are some fun activities you can try out with your family to help get you in the mood for fall, whether you're lucky enough to experience it or need some help dreaming it up. We've included some treats for you, the kids and even your furry friends:
