I never thought I’d be saying this, but I’m so happy that it’s fall. Today I turned the heat on at the house. There’s something about the smell of turning your heat on for the first time in months…I’ve also put in all my Fall Scentsy wax melts and put up my adorable fall wreath.
Today I’m celebrating fall by watching Gilmore Girls, having soup for lunch, and wearing a cozy sweatshirt. There is so much family fun to be had during the fall season in Utah. If you’re looking for me this fall, here’s where I’ll be:
Every year my family does an annual pumpkin carving contest. We stroll through the Mabey’s Pumpkin Patch, fill up our wheel barrel with pumpkins and run home to carve them. The Mabey’s also have an adorable set up with hay bales and picture perfect pumpkins to take fall photos in their yard. It’s adorable and we hope they never stop growing pumpkins.
Clara clearly loved the pumpkin patch her first year and our pumpkins turned out looking pretty great.
Gardner Village is a cute little historic village in West Jordan, UT. Every fall they have “Witch Fest” coupled with lots of different events like scavenger hunts, kid-friendly obstacle courses, plenty of photo ops with the witches, dinner theatre, a 5k, breakfast with witches, and all kinds of other fun things. I want to look into basically all of them for my family.
3// Canyon Drives
Corey isn’t from Utah, so last year when we drove up to Oktoberfest (that’s at Snowbird and is also a great fall activity) he was mesmerized by the changing leaves. There are so many canyons to choose from too that all have different things to see. I like to drive up Big Cotton Wood Canyon personally.
4// Heber Valley Railroad Pumpkin Train
Our family did this last year and we had a pretty good time. The ride up to Heber is beautiful and so is the town. It would probably be best for kids ages 3-7. They also do a Christmas event that is a longer train ride and I think there is dinner involved, but don’t quote me.
Okay so you will NOT find me in the maze or the haunted house, but most Corn mazes have other activities too like petting zoos, giant slides, and other fun photo ops. There are all kinds of them around here. The one we’ve been to was Cornbelly’s. I’ll be honest, we were in that maze for a long time. It was cold and my arm was broken…But I’m sure it’s fun for other people!
One of the best things about today being the first day of fall, is that I’m doing a giveaway!
