We have always bottled up fall with a nice little bucket list to enjoy the cooler weather, all things apple, and even more things pumpkin. Last year with all of the transitions, we didn't have an official list and just sort of got to know my ole' Kentucky home again.
This year, with the anticipation of our baby girl and new bearings on fun places to go, we thought a fall bucket list would be super fun and entertaining for the kids! As October is crazy busy with family outings and baby girl's arrival date are up in the air, we decided to start our fall the last weekend in August.
The late mornings have been cool and pleasant so we took advantage of sipping on some apple cider (traditionally and non-traditionally), munching on apple cider donuts, and playing on the playground at Mulberry Orchard in Shelbyville. We brought our own apple cider from home because they didn't have any yet. But we were able to score apple cider popsicles which the kids loved! Hence it was definitely a "sip apple cider' kind of morning! After a few turns on the swing, trips down the slide, and digs with the diggers, snack time included the traditional apple cider as well as the apple cider donuts.
Mulberry is such a hidden gem with light traffic as not to feel over-crowded but plenty of other families to play with along the day. If you haven't been, I highly recommend checking it out this fall!
