We may not truly have fall weather, but there are plenty of family-friendly fall activities in Austin to enjoy.
I’m not sure you’ll find anyone more excited than me for the fall. I love the changing of the seasons. Every year I dream up all these plans for my family. From pumpkin patches to corn mazes to coming up with the perfect costumes, I always want to maximize the fun this season brings… but then I struggle with the follow-through. Life gets too busy or I get lazy and stay home all weekend.
This year, let’s prioritize intentional time to play with our loved ones.
Let’s see how much all of us can check off!
Don’t forget to document these memories with your loved ones. You only get a limited number of fall seasons with your little ones, especially. All of these activities are perfect ideas for a Storytelling Session.
