Now that fall is arriving we are looking forward to another outside favorite and that would be visiting the apple orchard. It’s not only a place to go to get apple cider and AMAZING donuts, they have hay rides, horse rides, walking paths, pumpkin decorating contests and more, depending on which orchard you go to!

Pretty much every day, rain or shine, we go outside to play. To the park, on a hike, riding bikes, having a picnic, or taking our dog to the dog park.

Just schedule a once a day “let’s go” hour to gather up the kids and go outside to ride bikes. What better family fun activity then taking a spin or two around the neighborhood.
