Family Fall Fun To Do List 2012

Despite being a couple weeks away from the official start of fall, we've already entered my favorite time of the year. My birthday through New Years is THE BEST! It's all about celebration, closeness, and tradition - and I love everything about it! I make these to-do lists every year, for every season - sometimes borrowing ideas from the previous years, editing things that didn't work, and adding things I've found on Pinterest! So despite some of these being very specific to us (locations and specific local outings and such), I hope that you can find some fun ideas for you and your family to try out!
