Working mom in a Pinterest world. I mean well but I usually fall a bit short in the execution. You'll see.

oh bother, it’s fall
Last year, I lamented my fall frustrations to you, from kids’ Halloween costume anxiety to struggling to capture the perfect pumpkin patch photo. This year, the kids and I will be spending Halloween in Disney World, which will 1) get me out of the Halloween costume issue (other than the five Disney Princess dresses I’ll be packing) and 2) provide plenty of blog-worthy fodder.
That still leaves me seven weeks of fall to face and, since we didn’t take a summer vacation/craycation and I feel like I kind of missed out on that whole season, I’m ready to go full-force fall. I’m talking picking apples, hayrides, decorating a jack o’lantern, wearing plaid with boots and scarves. I’m going all in.
Here are some activities to help me in my quest--and yours, if you’re up for the challenge.
Hayrides at Brown’s Orchards
Saturdays from 10am-6pm, Sundays from 11am-4pm
We’ll hop on the tractor-pulled wagon and pick our own pumpkins and apples! C’mon, it’s fall!
