Fall Family Fun!

Jump into Fall with Family Fun

Fall is the perfect time to visit the mountains. You get to see them come alive with color as the cool, fall air creeps in to take summers place. 

 The most special moments there are to make, are made with family and fall is the perfect time to find fun stuff to do that brings the whole family together! Fall is the season all about bonding with family over holidays and family activities. Here are a few ideas for fall fun activities in the area!

The Altapass Orchard is very well known in the area for their great family atmosphere and there beautiful location. The orchard is nestled in the Appalachian mountains of Sprucepine, North Carolina. They have about fourteen-fifteen different types of apples you can pick from as well as fun activities such as storytelling hay rides, nature walks, and live mountain music!                

Pumpkin Patches, Corn Maze, Ghost Walks and More. Bryson City is full of fall family fun!

A visit to the pumpkin patch is another great family activity for the fall! It's a great activity that the whole family has a good time doing and is fairly cheap and easy to do. We have a lot of local farms here in the area that host pumpkin patches all over the county and in surrounding areas. This classic fall tradition is one that you know you can't lose with!
TRICK-OR-TREAT! Tricking-or-treating is one of
the best parts of the whole year, especially for kids! You get to dress up in your favorite costume and get free candy- what could be better! Definitely one of the best times to spend with family and a much anticipated activity for the kids- and the kids at heart! I don't think any one out grows the excitement of Halloween!

Classic Pumpkin Pie
One of my very favorite things about fall is baking! Baking is an enjoyable way for mom to spend time with her kids, while making yummy treats that you both can gobble up! Pumpkin pie is a fall treat that everyone loves! It has warm spices and rich taste that is perfect for the cool season. The recipe is also a great way to put your pumpkins to good use!

Here is a link for a great recipe: Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Jellystone's Labor Day Bash!

Labor Day Laughter and Fun!
We have had a blast this Labor Day week here at Jellystone! BooBoo celebrated
by throwing a barn yard bash with lots of fun and games to go with it! We couldn't have
asked for better weather or better energy in the park as we kicked off
 the last holiday of the summer season!

BooBoo was the life of the party this week, and was seen all over the park playing
 and having fun with campers! Labor Day is one of his favorite holidays, so he didn't
want to miss a minute of fun going on here in the park!

We had a bunch of sugar buzzed campers after we made cotton candy 
and candy arts-n-crafts! The campers got to grab a tube and fill it 
with their favorite candy flavors! Yumm!


We also had a lot of barn yard themed fun and games- all BooBoo approved for fun! Our
campers of all ages enjoyed a lot of our fun and games like corn hole and the 
egg balancing race!

We had highs in the upper 80's this week with beautiful 
sunshine filled days! The pool and water-slide were a perfect way to cool off
after awesome fun and games with our activities team!


I love this picture because it really sums up our week here! Beautiful
days with lots of laughter and family time. What a great week at Jellystone!
