  1. We plan on doing crayon transfers with fallen leaves, exploring the walking trails, visiting the animals at the farm while we pick pumpkins, planting things to bloom in the spring, going on lots of bike rides, baking goodies and making chili, taking outdoor family photos for our Christmas card and…announcing the secret of baby #2!

    Just tuning in to what’s going on this fall with kckidsfun.com website…so not sure what we will be getting into this fall but probably something that is posted here, as usual. Thinking we better get some outdoor fun in while we can before the cold and snow comes. Looking back to last fall we found out about Carolyn’s Country Cousins Pumpkin Patch from this site and it was fun so we will probably make our way back there this year…and maybe to a magic show that is indoors to escape some of the cold winds that are beFALLing us around here.

    We tried the phone number for Vaughn Orchard and it said the number is no longer in service.

Geez who wants to pay admission and then pay to do extra things? Ouch on the wallet! Definitely worth it!
