5 of Our Favorite Family Activities
It’s the time of the year when we can pull out our sweaters and jackets for good. The air is cool, but the sun still shines brightly making this the most ideal weather for outdoor activities. We all associate Fall with apples, pumpkins, and of course foliage, and there is no better way to spend this season than with your family and friends. Here are some of our favorite ways to appreciate Fall.
Hiking is a great activity for the whole family, pets included of course. You can alter your hike based on time, age, and stamina. It is an easy, free way to make sure everyone stays active when it becomes chilly. Make sure to check the weather first and dress appropriately.
- Apple Picking
Before leaving, confirm that the orchard is pet friendly. Your pet will love running up and down the aisles of apple trees. Apple picking is a fun – and delicious – way to stock your home with fresh apples. There is nothing better than an apple picked right off the tree!
- Make a pie
Pie is definitely the signature Fall dessert. The possibilities are endless: pumpkin, apple, pecan. Pair up with a family member and pretend you are a star on Food Network. This way not only will you be able to show off your competitive side, but you will get to try a bunch of seasonal pies.
- Host a pet holiday party
It is not often that you and all your friends can have a party with your pets! Pick a Sunday, cook a potluck dinner, and make sure all your guests bring their pet’s favorite treats. Seeing all your pets play together and enjoy dessert will make you believe they really are human!
- Explore a local small town
We are creatures of habit and tend to enjoy the same stores, restaurants, and areas that we are used to. Make a pact to pick a small local town that you have never been to before. Bring your pet and explore! You’ll be surprised how many places are pet friendly and how easily you fall in love with another town.
Life gets busy, but this Fall make sure you get the chance to make time to enjoy the company of your friends, family, and pets. Spend as much time outside now because soon you’ll be in front of the fire with a cup of hot chocolate.
