Maybe it's the changing leaves. The pumpkin flavored everything? The pumpkins themselves? Leaves on the ground? The crisp morning (and sometimes afternoon) air? APPLES! Apple picking? Hay rides? Cooler weather means you can wear sweatshirts and sweaters and no one notices the 5 pounds you put on from eating pumpkin flavored everything?
Probably all of the above. And more things I haven't thought of in my minute-long ponder over the wonders of my favorite season.
So far we've been enjoying the season.
We played at the Spa Park on an unusually warm day (which was awesome, because there were summer clothes we got as hand-me-downs that MiniM.E. never even wore!).
We went to Congress Park to feed the ducks,
and play with the flowers.
We visited Bowman Orchards. We played in their awesome wooden playground,
pet their animals,
tested out their fence and Adirondack chairs
sat in some pumpkins
and bought some cider and donuts.
We didn't actually go apple picking... but we bought some apples, so that counts, right?
We took a walk in downtown Ballston Spa. It wasn't exceptionally "fall-y" but MiniM.E. was wearing a halloween outfit, and it was pretty darn cute. And we were enjoying the cooler weather. So I'm going to count it as a fall activity.
