Fall Sweet Fall

I love fall!  Even as a kid I remember making leaf forts, collecting as many different color and kinds of leaves as I could find. I remember smelling the fireplaces going on crisp fall weekends. We would always take a Sunday and go apple picking with the entire family.

Today we try to keep the traditions going of apple picking at a local orchard, and of course pumpkin picking. Even our older kids still love it and now we are making memories for Jaxson too!

One of my other favorite things to do in the fall is to bake lots of apple and pumpkin things. My Grandmom use to always make pumpkin bread. I can still remember  how good it would smell when I was visiting. You know its fall at our house when you smell the freshly baked pumpkin bread.Hope you enjoy this moist pumpkin bread recipe as much as our family has...
