Now that our favorite season is officially here, we at Carrig & Dancer have compiled a fall bucket list, complete with family-friendly activities throughout Washington.
 Enjoy Fresh Apple Cider
What better way to celebrate fall than sampling fresh apple cider? Lattin’s Country Cider Mill & Farm in Olympia, holds an Apple Festival every weekend in October with games, tractor-drawn wagon rides and other family-friendly activities. While there, you’ll want to sample the farm’s award-winning cider, and bring home a pie or two.
 Bake Pumpkin Bread
 Take a Fall Foliage Drive
Some of the most vibrant colors – from vibrant reds and oranges to brilliant golds and yellows – can be found at Mount Rainier in west-central Washington state. Plan on heading out early in the day to avoid crowds. Mount Rainer will certainly have you and your family eliciting “oohs” and “ahhs.”
 S’mores anyone?
 Craft with Fallen Leaves
Bring nature’s beauty indoors with DIY leaf art. This project is perfect for kids of all ages. Simply gather some of your favorite leaves and/or flowers, flatten them under a heavy book, copy with a color photocopier, then glue the prints onto inexpensive canvas boards. Pinterest provides other DIY leaf art crafts.
 Decorate Your Porch for Fall
 Get Lost in a Corn Maze
Make this fall season unforgettable. Head on over to the Rutledge Corn Maze in Olympia and get lost in their 8-acre Corn Maze. The farm offers activities that are fun for all ages including: Spookley the Square Pumpkin, corn hole games, swings, and rides on their new cow train. When the sun sets, the maze becomes haunted.

 Ensure Proper Levels of Insulation
Under-insulated homes waste energy and money, harm the environment, and negatively affect the comfort of homeowners. A great place to start improving your home’s insulation is in the attic. Adding insulation to the home’s walls and ceilings is also a simple and effective way to increase energy efficiency.
