As promised, here’s the scavenger hunt list. (To review how to play, see Marriage Activity: Seasonal Scavenger Hunt – Fall.)
Good luck and happy scavenging this fall!
Scavenger Hunt Item List
1. Gaze at falling stars together.

3. Find a farm where you can pick apples.
4. Bake an apple pie with your fresh-picked apples. (See Valorie’s recipe for Delicious Apple-Pear Pie, or, if you’re not an apple pie fan, check out Michele’s Autumn Recipes series A is for Apple and F is for Fresh Fruit for apple recipe ideas.)
