  1. Wow, looks like your area has a ton of fall activities! I live in SoCal and we have some but it’s so hot til November, it’s really hard to get into the fall spirit!

  2. I love this! I am another Mom Blogger from Waco, just down the road! I had no idea there were so many fall activities in New Braunfels. This is inspiring me to do a similar post for my Waco blog. We are going down south the end of September. I will have to check some of these out! Thank you for sharing. 🙂

    1. Hi, neighbor! We’re lucky to have a lot of events for being a small town. And for those slow weekends it is a short drive to SA and Austin. I hope you do a post, I’m sure Waco has their fair share of fun!
