Family Fun for Fall Looking for family fun ideas for fall? You're in the right place! I've heard a resounding theme over the last few months from parents in my social circle and I can totally relate. The theme is "life's simple pleasures". Parents are feeling pulled in 100 different directions, none of which seem very...enjoyable or beneficial for their families. So they are simplifying, as am I. This blog will follow the "simple pleasures" theme while helping you connect and have a little family fun this fall.

Visit a corn maze! Never taken a walk through a corn maze before? Well then, you're in for a real treat! Conner's A-Maize-Ing Acres located in Hilliard, Florida and Amazing Grace is locted in Greencove Springs, Florida. These places offer more than just a corn maze, they are local adventures just waiting to be experienced by the whole family. Take a stroll through the corn maze, jump on the jump pad, build a scarecrow, let the kiddos climb around in giant bins of corn, and be sure to talk with the animals you meet at the farm. Conner's even offers a Feild of Screams for the brave!

Catch the memories on camera! Throw on some fall clothes, visit a pumpkin patch and snap a few family photos! Seeing the kids faces light up with joy as they scurry about looking at the different shapes, sizes, and varieties is priceless. We have a ton of places around town to stop. One patch that seems to be a favorite umongst parents is at The Shepherd of The Woods Lutheran Church and School in Jax., FL. Visit a pumpkin patch and let us know your favorite!

Recipes to ring in fall! No Excuses Pumpkin Muffins! This is the easiest recipe, ever! Calling for only 2 ingredients, everyone has time for that! 1 boxed spice cake and 1 small can (15 0z.) of pumpkin, NOT pie filling. Mix the two together well until no dry spots remain. Then bake at 325 degrees for about 18-20 mins. You can sub carrot cake for spice cake if you don't like spice cake! These simple yet delicious muffins are only 160 calories each. That's until you jazz them up with a maple cinnamon glaze... and there goes the calories! Cheesy Butternut Squash Pasta is another favorite in our house. Honestly it's the best mac n cheese I've ever had! I however change up the recipe by adding in pureed cauliflower and omit the parsley and paprika. Talk about a fall recipe that's Heavenly! You might just be adding this to your personal recipe list. The kids love it!
