  1. Trina Kinsey posted on FB: "Hi Megan! I am a single mother of two DYNAMICALLY BEAUITFUL girls, Taylor 8, Tatum 2. Our Friday night tradition is called "Sleeping Bag Friday" and we get our sleeping bags, jammies, hot chocolate with Lots of Whipped Cream and watch a DVD in the living room where we fall asleep. My girls LOVE this mommy time together!" Thanks for the awesome ideas, Trina!

  2. I love fall because it's not too hot and not too cold. I love how the sun isn't as bright as summer, I love the colors of fall. Fall is my favorite!!!

  3. I love to drive through the mountains to see the fall colors.

  4. Fall is a great time to make a trip to the california coast. San Diego and San Francisco have the least fog, thus have the warmest temperatures in late September and most of October. The summer and overseas visitors are less in numbers so touristy locations are less crowded. Disneyland decorates for Halloween and the kids can trick or treat there. But even better, visit Disneyland in the late fall, between the end of Thanksgiving break and the beginning of winter break when the parks are decorated beautifully for Christmas, the park is not crowded, and the weather is comfortable with a light jacket typically. We love Califirnia in the fall!

  5. Fall is my favorite time of year! We love going to the Albuquerque Zoo in the fall. The fall colors are amazing. The big cotton wood trees are dropping "ginormous" leaves! (According to my 5 year old!) The summer crowds have slowed down. The animals are not as hot so they are very active.

  6. I want to vacation upstate in a nice country house by a lake.

  7. I like walking to work on crisp fall mornings.
