Staying local for Fall Break

Fall is my favorite time to travel as a family. I am about 275% more patient with everyone when it is not 95° outside. We talked several months ago about traveling somewhere fun together the second week of October since our children were scheduled to be out of school for the entire week. But something came up at work for my husband, so we decided to stay local. We spent the first half of the week sleeping in, watching Halloween movies, baking cookies, playing outside, picking out Halloween costumes, making books, making slime with neighbors, and really enjoying the down time.

We decided yesterday to visit Isom’s Orchard in Athens, AL. They have certain times you can pick your own grapes, peaches, apples, even flowers! But yesterday we just walked around, enjoyed the {FINALLY!!!} cooler temperatures, and picked out some gorgeous $5 pumpkins for our porch.

We also ordered their famous apple slushes and they were delicious! At only $2 each, we almost got us each another for the road, but decided to wait until next time. *all prices included tax, but they only accept cash or check, so be prepared.

There are so many beautiful places in our area, and fall is a wonderful time to get out and enjoy them.
