|Autumn is Magical! Seize It!!|
I've recently written a story for Bonbon Break on how to create an Autumn Magic List (because we all know I LOVE lists.) Below are some of the activities we've already checked off our list.
1. Enjoy a local theme park, zoo, or tourist attraction – without the crowds! Why not celebrate that summer vacation is over and you can actually walk around your local zoo and see animals rather than crowds of tourists. As somebody who doesn’t like large masses of people, I love autumn and welcome having some of my favorite places to myself again.

2. Spend a day in the country. Nothing says autumn more than a day in the country running through a corn maze, hiking through golden trees, or picking pumpkins at a local farm.
|Mini Golf, Tractor Rides, and a Day in the Country - Check!|
3. Go camping one last time. I know it might be cold where you live by mid-October, but this is a great time to try comfort camping in a yurt or covered wall tent, to book a wilderness cabin or hut, or to stay in a back-country lodge.

4. Throw an Outdoor Halloween Bash. (Check out this story that I wrote for BonBon Break last year to get inspired for this one.)
|Our Third Annual Outdoor Halloween Party (40+ families this year)|
|First Snow Hike - Check (and this was the September long weekend)|
Now, to read all TEN suggestions in my autumn magic list, some of which we've done, some of which will hopefully happen over the next week or two, please go to Bonbon Break to read the full story: Autumn Magic List - the Complete Story!
