Leaves are starting to fall.  It's jacket weather outside.  The excitement of Halloween lingers (even though Holiday displays are prematurely in the stores).  The initial excitement of Back to School is wearing off and the winter holidays are too far away to keep your kids excited for the now.  Other than Trick-or-Treating on the 31st, how DO you keep your family entertained throughout the month of October?


Every year there are SO many options from the annual, well-known haunts to the off the beaten path activities.  There is truly something for everyone IF you know where to look!  That's where I come in!
