What's on... Your bucket list

I thought it would be fun to link up with Andrea for What’s On… my bucket list.  I made a similar one to this in the summer, and we were able to cross most of that off.  I know this time of year is even busier, so I kept it pretty simple.  So, here is What’s On… My Fall Bucket List.

 

 

Picnic in the park- I had this on my summer list, but we never got around to it.  We have a great park nearby with picnic tables, so when it’s not too chilly out, I want to take food and go feed the ducks and have a picnic! 

 

Make S’mores- S’mores are one of my favorite snacks.  Landry has never had one, and I need to resolve that ASAP!  

 

Learn to ride a bike with no training wheels- Landry has been coming home riding her bike after school and told me Sunday that the training wheels were for babies and she is not a baby, so she wants them off.  So, we will see how this one goes.  I’m nervous for her, but she is one determined little girl, and when she puts her mind to something, she usually accomplishes it.  

 

Make chili- Chili is my favorite dish that my mother in law makes.  One of the first meals I can remember eating at their house when Tim and I first started dating was chili.  She usually waits until it is cold outside to make it, and that time is upon us!  

 

Create a paper plate turkey- I’ve seen these floating around Pinterest and thought this would be fun for Landry to make.  I also want her to write things she is thankful for.  

 

Family movie night- We have these all the time, but Tim nor Landry have seen Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving movie, so I thought that one would be good.

 

Make caramel apples- I love these!  I’ve actually never made them homemade before, so this one will be good for all of us to try!

 

Go to a high school football game- I went to Friday night football games for 4 years, every game.  I was on the drill team so we were there every week.  I have only been to a handful of high school games since I’ve graduated so I thought this one would be fun for the whole family.  Landry’s school is right behind our cities stadium so every morning she sees the flag girls practicing and has been begging to go see them perform.  

 

Make taco soup- Do you notice a trend in this bucket list?  There is a lot of food being made!  I love fall food and this soup is one of my favorites to make.  I always make it in the crock pot with a pan of cornbread.  Mmm, I’m hungry just thinking about it.  

 

Drink hot apple cider- I found a really easy recipe for this that you make in the crock pot and add red hots to.  I thought that would be fairly simple and fun for Landry to help with.  

 

It’s Fall!  I absolutely love this time of year!  I cannot wait to get started on our Bucket list.
