We decided to do a more recent flashback this time. Flashback to last week…
Have you heard of Pinterest? Pinterest
is a brilliant online tool that inspires creativity in a really interesting way. According to their website, Pinterest is “a virtual pinboard… (it) allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web.” What you do is go online, find things that inspire you, then pin these interests (Get it? Pin your interests, Pinterest! Very clever) onto these boards that you’ve created for your profile. It’s genius! My sister-in-law introduced me to this handy little gem, and I am a huge fan!
After spending a few minutes on Pinterest (But seriously, you could spend an hour or more on Pinterest if you’re not careful, it’s that addictive), I came across a really fabulous idea for Fall.
Someone pinned a Fall Bucket List on their board and I just had to repin it onto my “Holidays” board. A bucket list is a wish list of things to do before you “kick the bucket.” I believe that this Fall Bucket List, is a list of family fun activities to do before Fall kicks the bucket. Some of the activities on the list include apple picking, going on a hay ride, corn maze, going to a pumpkin patch and much much more.
Well, what better place to experience a lot of these great ideas is at The Pumpkin Festival at Chappell Farms right outside of Barrie, ON. This was our first time ever visiting this amazing family friendly destination and we loved it! Noah loved the cows and sheep at the petting zoo, the mini playground, the tricycles, the hay maze, and the tractor ride. But most of all, he loved chasing the seagulls all around the property.
All in all, it was a perfect family outing. Many wonderful memories were created. All thanks to the creative ideas presented on Pinterest. I can’t wait to see what cool activities our Winter Bucket List has to offer!
