Tuesday Talk- Bucket List

Hey everyone. Happy Tuesday. Summer has come to an end and fall is in full swing, even if the calendar doesn't say it yet. The weather also cant make up its mind up here in Ohio and we are having gorgeous 80 degree days then the nights are dropped to the 50's. The end of August was in the low 60's during the day. Mother Nature is a little confused this year. This month for Tuesday Talk I am discuss Bucket Lists. I am linkin up with Ashley and Erika.
This past summer Ella and I sat down and came up with Summer Bucket List. Read all about it HERE It actually worked out great for us to come up with some new ideas of fun things to do, and gave us ideas of things to do when we were "bored". We didn't finish everything on our list but that's ok. I plan on making another one next summer. 

Let's review what we got done:

We had a lots of fun and made great memories with our summer bucket . We decided to do a Fall Bucket List. I made it myself without Ella's help and made it more realistic of what we could get done. I then went over it with her to see if she wanted to add anything else. The Summer Bucket List was all things to do as a family. The Fall Bucket List has some more individual stuff for myself, like bake a pie, but everyone else gets to enjoy eating it. 

Here is our Fall Bucket List:
Pick Pumpkins
Carve Pumpkins
Make Pumpkin Seeds
Enjoy a Pumpkin Latte
Drink Apple Cider
Go on a Hay Ride
Make Smores
Have a Fire
Jump in Leaves
Mae a Scare Crow

Do you or your family make a seasonal bucket list of fun things to do? We are also going to do a Christmas Bucket List and a Winter Bucket List. It is a great way to remember activities you want to do and include the kids in on the fun. And who doesn't like crossing something off once it is done.
