Our favorite traditions vary by season, but here are some of our favorites!
Autumn: Autumn is our favorite season. Every year, we take a trip to the New England states or upstate NY to enjoy the beauty of the leaves changing colors. We also go apple and pumpkin picking with our family. We both love apple cider donuts! As Halloween approaches, we carve pumpkins and decorate the house. We like dressing up in costumes just for fun on Halloween!
Winter: While we enjoy the heavy snowfall to build snowmen and snow tubing, we like staying inside and making hot chocolate and watching a good movie too. We also enjoy visiting different villages to see their Christmas trees.
Spring: As the air gets warmer outside, plans are made for those early spring hikes, walks in the park, spring cleaning and planting. We would love to share the joys of planting seeds and watching them grow and blossom into pretty flowers.
Summer: BBQ, the grill is on, and the family is over for hotdogs, steaks, corn and burgers. It is also the time of year that we plan short road trips. We found that living in the Hudson Valley, there are so many charming little towns to explore. We can’t wait to take a child to explore, nearby museums, petting zoos, and farms.
