Fall bucket list

 A throw back to Mia's first ever pumpkin patch in 2014!
Maybe it's too early to be thinking of Fall (it definitely feels like it's too early here in Arizona... but the good news is that we've been enjoying high 90's the past few days! It's amazing what a relief it is to have the temperature under 100 degrees, ha ha!) but I like being a rule breaker since Mia and I pulled out the Fall/Halloween decor yesterday anyway ;) Mia is into the seasons and holidays more than ever now that she understands more, and she's really excited for Halloween! I want to make this season as special for her as possible, even though I'll be a sleep deprived zombie for most of it :)

1- Take the kids (KIDS! Weird!) to a pumpkin patch. I think they have those in Arizona? If not, we will find some type of Fall festival type thing to enjoy as a family!

2- Make a spider craft with Mia. She seriously loves spiders... Costco has a huge, creepy spider that Mia loves and claims that it's hers. Really, it's the weirdest thing, ha ha! So I think she would LOVE making a spider craft!

3- Go to the zoo and check out their Halloween themed fun!

4- Make a pumpkin/Halloween treat. I may leave this one up to Eric or a set of grandparents (or all 3, I wouldn't be complaining over having lots of seasonal treats in the house ;)) to do with Mia as I'm not really a fan of baking in the first place, and I doubt I'll be able to handle cooking, let alone baking with a toddler!

5- Paint and carve pumpkins! Mia has actually asked me to carve pumpkins, she remembers doing them with Eric last year (which blows my mind that she remembers!)! And she is obsessed with painting so we will definitely do that again!

6- Go trick or treating! We've got both costumes ready to go and Mia is SO excited! She was just telling me about them on our walk yesterday morning :) She's excited to dress up with baby brother!

I'm keeping the list simple this year. If we are able to sneak in more Halloween fun, great!! I will be all for it! But I don't want to add any pressure to life as we adjust to having a newborn in the home again. Mia won't know the difference anyway ;)

I love making fall bucket lists too! They have a Pumpkin & Chili party at Schnepf farm that is really fun in Queen Creek :) We went to Mother Nature's Farm last year in Gilbert which was cute! Definitely not the traditional pumpkin patches you're used to, but at least you'll get a little taste of fall :)

We took sophie to a pumpkin patch last year (if we could call it) that last year and it was so much fun. I probably had more fun than Sophie.

What a great fall bucket list! I want to find a pumpkin patch here but I haven't found a good one yet. At least I found a corn maze to go to! So weird Mia loves spiders but at least she doesn't freak out at the sight of them!

We pretty much have the same list but I get to celebrate my birthday and anniversary within a month of each other :) This Holiday season will be so fun for your family adding baby Brother!!!

Yay for holiday fun! I went to Disneyland this past week and they had all of their halloween decorations up! It was so festive! When I first saw that picture I was like, wait when did she have the baby, lol! I totally missed that.

I love your little fall bucket list! And you are so cute. I'm sure they have pumpkin patches in Arizona! Haha. We have them here and it's plenty hot. Just be prepared to wear shorts and tshirts to the pumpkin patch. That's the only difference between Arizona and Utah. Oh and you basically have to pretend its fall weather when you do fall activities. But other than that, its all the same :)

Ah, you are going to have so much fun trick-or-treating this year! Can't wait to see photos :)

I think your list is PERFECT. Lots of fall fun but it looks totally doable for a family with a new addition. Your going to have so much fun over the holidays this year.
