Fall is almost here, Cincinnati, and let me be honest, it’s one of my most favorite things about living here. Growing up in deep south Louisiana, we didn’t experience Fall at all. It was still hot, still humid, and the trees stayed the same colors. So, when I experienced my first “Fall” here in Ohio, I was in love. The boots, the scarves, the hot cider, and wait…I get to ride on a hayride, drive out to a pumpkin patch, and actually pick my pumpkin?? NO WAY!
Fall is one of my family’s favorite time of the year because there’s so many things you can do as a family. From star gazing to sleeping with the windows open to making homemade applesauce, these are just a few of the things you can do together.
