Autumn has already come upon us and the pool is too cold for swimming (for most of us anyway).  Have you thought about what you will plan to get the family together now that the seasons have changed?

Why not create a family Fall and/or Winter bucket list?  Everyone gathers around the table and agrees on a set number of items to add to the list.  See how many you can check off before the season is over and everyone is headed back out to the pool!

Here is a list of some of our favorite activities:


Jump in a pile of leaves

Visit a pumpkin patch

Go apple picking

Visit a corn maze

Bake a pie or two

Make caramel or candy apples

Go puddle jumping

Carve or paint pumpkins
