Anthony’s Favorite Fall Family Activities

October is one of my favorite times of year! The days become shorter, nights become cooler and the colors of autumn are in full bloom. It is a great time to spend with family and friends doing fun activities before we bunker down in our houses for winter. I feel especially lucky that I get to experience fall in one of the most gorgeous states in the country, Utah. Although this year is different from years in the past my love for the October season remains the same.

Here are my favorite things to do during the fall time:

1. Drive the Alpine Loop and hike to Cascade Springs:

After traveling the Alpine Loop there is a short hike to Cascade Springs. A gorgeous waterfall that is even more beautiful in the fall time.

2. Cornbelly's Corn Maze at Thanksgiving Point:

Sadly we aren't attending this year, but it is a fun Halloween corn maze festival. I highly recommend giving it a try if you have never been before.

3. Watch Hocus Pocus

This is my favorite Halloween movie. I don't think there has been a Halloween seen its' release that I haven't watched the film. A true classic for sure!

4. Trick or Treating in our neighborhood.

Edita and I are not quite sure how this is going to go this year. I've seen a lot of candy chutes by people getting creative due to the current state of the pandemic so that the Halloween tradition may be able to continue. Jury is still out on whether or not we will be partaking in the tradition this year.

5. Eating my kids candy after they go to bed.

This tradition Edita and I will most definitely be partaking in. Whether we eat their candy from school or the candy we buy for them that we eat after bedtime, there will be lots of candy eaten. But isn't this just one of the perks of having kids?

6. Wearing Sweaters

I love that the weather cools down enough to wear sweaters every day. They are a lot cozier than a business suit.

7. I always want to be in the mountains during the fall

Whether we are driving to Park City, hiking Bell Canyon, or just exploring around our home city of Draper I am always looking at the Utah mountains. They are officially covered in the colors of fall and there is nothing quite like seeing them every day. Utah has the best mountains in the country if I do say so myself.   Although I don't get to enjoy all of my normal Halloween traditions this year, I am still taking the time to appreciate the amazing weather, gorgeous Utah mountain views, and the time I get to spend with my family. Like they say, "when we have each other, we have everything" Wishing you all a happy fall!

“Let Me Know What is Going on so I Didn’t Feel Left in the Dark”

I have been working with Anthony for almost 6 years now. He helped me get my credit score in check and was very upfront and patient with what was needed in order to qualify for a Mortgage at a great rate. My wife and I were finally able to get to a place to purchase a home and now re-finance that home at a better rate with the amazing help of Anthony and the ALV team. They are quick to respond and have always let me know what is going on so I don't feel left in the dark. If you want someone that you can trust to get the job done right, go with ALV!
