Weekend Planner

At Geisler Farms, 2015

What We're Doing:

  • Dog sitting. The minis have their first dog sitting job and of course, I'm helping them out with it.
  • Geisler Farms. It's feeling like fall lately here and I'm ready to adorn our home with all shapes, sizes, and colors of pumpkins, so we're headed to a pumpkin patch Sunday afternoon. We went to Geisler Farms last year on our Tour of Pumpkin Patches and were impressed with the wide varieties of pumpkins and fall decor they offered (read more here)

Other Things To Do:

  • Check out a haunted house near you
  • Nobbie Family Friendly Haunt Fair at all locations. Then check out ALL of the costumes and decorations they have for the season!
  • Bonfires this time of year are fantastic (disclaimer: only do this if you are in an area that allows them and you can safely do one)
  • Go on a fall nature hike and collect colorful leaves, nuts, sticks, seeds, etc. You can make them into a collage like this

Things To Do In Central Iowa:

  • Corn Harvest at Living History Farms
  • Des Moines Zombie Walk
  • Planned Parenthood book sale
  • Pumpkin Express in Boone
  • Star Party at Ewing Park
  • Family Day at Prairie Meadows
  • Madison County Covered Bridge Festival
  • World Food Prize Hall of Laureates 5th Anniversary Open House. We went for their open house during Christmas last year (read about it here) and even the kids found it fascinating.
