We are 27 days away until it’s officially autumn. We are huge fall lovers and as our boys get older we are finding ways to keep them entertained while also still being able to enjoy doing activities as a family. Since my boys are teens I figured I would share a few things you can do with your teen(s) this fall that won’t bore them.
