Things to Do! October 16, 2017 – October 19, 2017

October is winding down. Apples orchards are closing but pumpkins are still available for picking. 

More and more Halloween activities are popping up, mostly next weekend (and then you’ll see even more next week). Of course, now is the time to plan that costume! 

This week, you’ll continue to find lots to do with those little ones at home.  Story times and indoor play were always our favorite way to spend the days while the older kids were at school. Now that my little one is in school, and I’m back to work tomorrow, we don’t get to explore too much during the weekdays anymore.  With the colder temps setting in though, you’ll find that most of your outing choices will continue to be indoor play and library story times.  Of course, there are always playgrounds, parks and even some farms to check out during the week! You’ll find lots of those reviewed on this site – so you can always just pick a place and check it out! 

Enjoy this fall week everyone!
