Summer to Fall Fun & a GIVEAWAY!!

September is such a "transitional" month, don't you think? It's the season of back-to-school, baseball is ending, football is beginning. You might be laying by the pool one day, and shopping for Halloween costumes the next. It's kind of an odd time of year, I think. So, during these transitional months, here are some fun activities for you to do, that will give you the best of both Summer and Fall:

1) A Berry Good Time. August and September are great months for berries! If you have a wild berry location nearby, or a "U-Pick" location, this is a fun way to get lots of berries for very little money. And the kids love it! Then you can go home and make a fabulous pie or parfait for dessert. It will taste that much better when you pick the berries yourself!

2) Take me out to a ball game! September is the last month of regular season professional baseball. October is the playoffs. If you have a major or minor league team near you, go out for a fun night enjoying America's Pastime! Baseball games are fun for the whole family, for date night, or a night out with friends! Buy me some peanuts and Crackerjacks!

3) Friday Night Lights! There's nothing quite like the atmosphere of a hometown high school football game. Go cheer on your local boys at a football game. A great time for all, and admission is usually super cheap!

4) Go pay Johnny Appleseed a visit! While you're waiting for the pumpkin patch to open, find an apple orchard. Make a day of picking apples, picnicking, and having some tasty fresh cider or pie!

5) Go to the fair! Many areas host their County Fairs in the months of August and September. This is a great activity for all ages. Ride the rides, eat something deep fried, check out the livestock, and shop the vendors!
