While the weather in California may not be reflecting “Fall” temperatures, the first day of October is here. In Fresno it means (hopefully) the end of triple degree heat and going outside. I have created a little Fall Bucket List for Toddlers.
Fall Bucket List for Toddlers
Go to A Pumpkin Patch (or a few pumpkin patches)
Last year, we went to one pumpkin patch and then we went to another patch, and a third pumpkin patch. I didn’t plan to go to three, I just ended up becoming obsessed!
My favorite pumpkin patch in the Fresno area is Hillcrest Farms about 20 – 30 minutes outside of Fresno. The farm has a train, hay ride, a play area, and a picnic area. We spent hours here last year.
The other two we visited wasn’t as memorable. I’m on the hunt for a few others to explore this year though.
Go Fruit Picking
I’ve never been and I think picking fruit with Rowan would be fun. I am not sure where to go yet, but we will go!
Visit the Fair
The Fresno County Fair will be in town during October. We have lived in Fresno for two years and I haven’t been to the big fair yet. Last year, we went to the Caruthers Fair, but we missed it this year.
Craving pumpkins with a toddler seems like the worse idea ever. So, I think we’ll paint them instead.
Make S’mores in the Backyard
Brady built a fire pit, so really we should be making S’mores every night.
Take Photos in a Pile of Leaves
This one may be hard for us here in California, but I will find a pile, I will. We found them once, when Rowan was a baby.
What do you have planned for fall? Anything else we should add to our list?
