Transitioning to Fall

Summer is such a wonderful time of year in the Pacific Northwest, but Fall always finds a way to steal my heart. Even though we officially have a few more weeks of Summer, it is starting to feel more like Fall as children head back to school and temperatures start to cool. As you set out to make your Autumn plans might I suggest an apple picking trip, a glorious hike or a drive to do some leaf peeping.

Here are some of our favorite things to do in the Fall:

Head to east of the mountains to Leavenworth for a scenic drive, some spectacular fall hiking or leaf peeping.

Visit a pumpkin patch and then host a Harvest Party with all the fresh produce you procured from the farm or a Pumpkin Carving Party.

Purchase pumpkins and gourds to decorate your home.

Plan a trip to the local fair, like the Puyallup Fair.

Make a quick Fall centerpiece for all your dinner guest to enjoy.

Take a walk or two around the neighborhood and don't forget to bring your camera.

Spend more time indoors making comfort food like Winter Vegetable Soup, Winter Vegetable Soup or Minestrone.

Go apple picking and then make caramel apples.

Make Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread or Sausage and Feta Hand Pies.

Find solitude in the city.
