We are a busy family, always out and about, over-booking and over-enjoying every weekend possible as weekdays are consumed with school, work and sports. Today reality set in with the temperatures changes, winter is approaching, the days shorter and the weather will continue to get colder. It's not a secret for those that know us close, we are not planners...go with the flow is more our style. But as the kids are getting older, I do want to make sure we make time to try new experiences (for us) taking in all the season has to offer! With that said , we thought it would be fun to document the season with a bucket list full of fun items to try! If anyone has any suggestions please let us know!
Visit a tree farm and maybe talk that sweet hubby of mine into our first real tree - I know we are running out of time, but it's still worth a shot.
