Yesterday was the last day of my fall fun activity list. My lobster and I had our horror movie marathon and that was the last item we were able to complete. We didn’t finish ‘have game night’, ‘roast pumpkin seeds’ or ‘go on a nature hike’. Eighteen items out of twenty-one is not bad, we can just save the last three for next year. We enjoyed the activities on the list, there were lots of new adventures, and I think we may have added a few more fall traditions to our list. My favourite activities were the haunted house and the corn maze. It was a great way to get up and out of the house since both of us tend to be homebodies. Can’t wait until next fall.
Last year my Lobster and I bought a pumpkin but did not get around to carving it. I love carving pumpkins so I put it on the fall fun activity list. This year we forgot to even buy a pumpkin. I was so focused on completing items on the list that I forgot to buy a pumpkin. Luckily I did buy one for work. So instead of carving a pumpkin with my lobster, I carved one with my kids. They had so much fun watching and talking about it but none of them wanted to put their hand inside or touch the insides and seeds when I pulled them out.
I was hoping to also ‘go for a morning walk’ with my Lobster but it seems we ran out of time. I went on a walk this morning on my way to work. Two more things to cross off the list.
