I love going to the pumpkin patch on a fall crisp day. We all get dressed in our fall attire- usually some sort of halloween/ pumpkin shirt etc... I like watching the kiddos run through the pumpkin patch looking for the perfect pumpkin. It is also fun to ride on a wagon and watch the kids reaction at all the "new" stuff they are seeing and experiencing. We just went last week to the farm for pumpkin picking and took our son for the first time. We had a blast and it was a sunny, fall COOL morning.

Kris said...

I LOVE fall! It's my FAVORITE time of year! Overall, though, I have to say my favorite fall activity is sitting on my patio on a crisp fall morning drinking a not cup of coffee (or chai tea). Oh, and reading.

Nancy said...

My favorite fall activity- anything to do with pumpkins, carving, baking, eating. All are good.

Amy said...

I am not entering the give away (since I have The Shack), but I wanted to tell you that I just finished reading it. It was wonderful...and it was very life changing just like you said. Saturday we got the book on audio CDs for Shannon to listen to while driving to work and back...He loves it so far as well. Thank you so much for sharing it with me. It has opened my eyes and provided me with so much clarity about the circumstances that we all go through in this life. And I loved the humor. *sigh* I have felt God's laughter inside me so many times, so that part of the book really touched me.

Thanks again, Tracey!

God Bless,
Amy:)

I love to bake (I have a dessert blog), go for long walks on a crisp day, and curl up by a fire with a great book and a hot cup of tea (or hot chocolate or coffee depending on the mood).

Thank you for the chance to win. It's a great one, not too basic in the least.

flmom said...

I've been wanting to read The Shack - I'm hold #123 at the library so it'll be awhile before it's my turn.

My favorite fall activity is baking. The weather here cools down enough that we can open the windows in about mid-October and I get inspired to bake. With the fresh breezes blowing through the house the oven doesn't heat things up too much and my family is certainly appreciative of the goodies. :o)

I think my favorite has to be going to a pumpkin patch with the boys. Although without kids I think my favorite would be to have a mug of hot chocolate near a bon fire and roast some marshmallows!

Fall is my favorite time of year. It has been for as long as I can remember. The cool, crisp air and the lovely colors of the leaves. There are bonfires, hayrides, apple picking, jumping in leaves, etc. My favorite is our family going to stay in a cabin, hiking, fishing and enjoying games in the cabin at night. Thanks, Cindi
