Fall is one of my favorite seasons.  I love the colors of the leaves still remaining on the trees, the colors of the sky that explode at dawn and dusk and the endless colors that children paint their faces in hopes of being the scariest of them all for Halloween.  Here are some fun things to do inside and out during this jewel-toned month.  Enjoy!
