It’s that time of year!  The time when we slowly start to crawl out of our air conditioned holes and reemerge into that glorious thing we call FALL!  Ok, so maybe it won’t start to cool off for at least another month, but now there’s hope!  It’s time to plan your activities for the outdoors and welcome the Halloween and Harvest seasons to Texas!  Here are several ideas you should consider for the family:
