Fall is officially here and I’ve made it my mission to check off all of our fall bucket list activities! In between our typical routine of school, extracurriculars and lots and lots of birthday parties, we we’ve finally been able to start having some fall fun. Last weekend Cole went to another friend’s birthday party, but after we were able to squeeze in one of our favorite fall activities – the fall festival at the Idaho Botanical Garden. This is such a fun annual event with live music, food trucks, and fun crafts/activities for the kids.
This past week was bitterly cold here in Boise! We had record low temperatures and woke up to 20 degree temps a few mornings. It has definitely served as a reminder to us to get outside and enjoy the mild temps while it lasts, because those colder temps will be here to stay awhile before long! We’ve taken several walks and bike rides to the park to play in the leaves.
Evan also attended a sweet little birthday party for one of his school friends at the Nature Center. They had a scavenger hunt and it was so cute! Cole ended up tagging along and even had fun participating in the hunt. The nature center is one of my favorite places to visit in the fall too.
One of my fall bucket list activities this year was to actually attend a football game – we never miss our Boise State Broncos on TV but haven’t been to watch them in a few years. This past weekend we went to watch them take on Hawaii at our homecoming game! It was not only a great game (and win!) but it was a record attendance crowd just shy of 37,000 people which made it even more fun. I bought this bright orange, balloon sleeve sweater specifically for the game – but it will actually be cute to wear for upcoming Halloween festivities too!
The game ran super late and we didn’t even get home until after midnight, and we are all still pretty tired today. We have no school this coming Friday and we are all looking so forward to this upcoming 3 day weekend! Hope you are having a great Monday!
