Fall has arrived.


So the summer has passed us by again this year in a cloud of dust. Off to warm some other part of the world and leave us with the changing colors of the leaves, longer nights, and a noticeable temperature drop. This does happen to be one of my favorite times of year. When things start getting chilly and you see people raking up the red and yellow leaves in driveways and front yards. I smile and think about all the pies, cookies, family meals, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, costumes, turkeys, and inevitably the stomach ache and 10 extra pounds I will gain and vow to lose, come January 1st.

I have recently started doing a bit of looking around to see what kind of trouble I can get myself into this year with local events. There have been those years where I didn’t make a point of going out and celebrating the seasons and the year just seemed to pass by unnoticed. I remember in grade school all the cute projects we did for our parents. The Turkey made on construction paper by tracing your hand with a giant crayon, the countdown paper chain for Christmas… 🙂

That’s the feeling I’m looking for. That nostalgic bring me back to childhood fuzzy feeling. So in my plight I have put together a few things that I would be interested in doing this fall and perhaps if you are looking for that same feeling you could swing on by as well!

  1. Visit a Haunted place – as much as you see these types of things on TV it is surprisingly uncommon in these parts. I only found a few places that claim to have some sort of paranormal haunting.

The Everett Theater

The Cabbage Patch Restaurant 

The Oxford Saloon

2. Halloween Party…. Tulalips Thriller Party. Who wouldn’t want to go to this and have a good time… I’m sure they           will play the thriller at least once…

3. Pumpkin patch/ Corn Maze. – There are a lot of these. Depending on where you are and how far you want to drive. The best bet would be to just search for one nearby. After I go to a few this year perhaps I could give you some opinions on which is better…. Or if you go tell me!
