Halloween Bucket List + Feature Friday Linky Party

Hi there lovelies! I looked at the calender today and had to do a double take. How is it already the 18th of October? This month is going by way too fast. With my sons birthday, his baptism this weekend, and all our Halloween fun, we have been pretty busy. Every year we do some sort of count down to the spooky Hallows Eve. This year we are doing more of a bucket list. I went onto my Parks and Recreations website to see what activities they had for kids that were free or pretty close to it. I did the same for our library's website. I was able to find so much stuff! Doing a countdown or holiday bucket list, with your kids, doesn't have to cost you. Remember it is the time you spend with your littles, not how much money you spend. I try to remind myself this whenever I am making up my list. This year I came up with the list below. Feel free to copy or create your own bucket list/countdown. I have included links and pictures where it applies. We have been having a blast celebrating this month. Create your own list and enjoy this fall season with your littles.

 read books about different "spooky" birds 
we're doing this through our parks and recreation
