Perfect Autumn Day

Describe a perfect autumn day. What kinds of activities would you do on that day?
I'd wake up and make pancakes for my family. We'd all eat breakfast together. Then we'd get our bikes (which we don't all own yet!) and pack the car with them and drive to an area where we'd bike the rest of the morning or afternoon - maybe at a park with a long trail, or somewhere in the country. When we were done, we'd stop somewhere for a late lunch. Then on the way home we'd find a little coffee shop with an ice cream store next to it. We'd stop and everyone could have their selection of either ice cream or hot cocoa or coffee. Then we'd come home, rake up some leaves in the late afternoon, and tend to the yard while chatting with neighbors. In the evening we'd have a light dinner. My husband would watch some soccer, the kids would play games together and I'd read a magazine or a book. Everyone would go to bed early and sleep peacefully.
I wake up before everyone else. Still in pajamas and slippers I take the time to write my morning pages while sipping coffee on the patio. Everyone wakes up to the smells of the pancakes and eggs I am making them for breakfast. We eat around the table together and plan our day.
We decide to drive to Oak Glen. It's only an hour away. I can practically taste the apple cider already.
We spend the day picking our own apples from the trees. We go from orchard to orchard gathering the different types of apples so we can try them all later. I make sure we get enough for pies and applesauce.
When we are done we find the pumpkin patch. Each of us chooses the pumpkin we want to carve and take it from the vine.
Afterward, we sit and eat fresh apple pie and drink fresh apple cider in the restaurant. It's a weekday so the crowds are not claustraphobic and we really enjoy our time.
That night we light the first fire of the season in our fireplace. The smell is cozy. We play boardgames before bed. In my sleep I dream of apples, pies and peace.
ooooooo that sounds nice!
A perfect Autumn day would be to go to one of the parks and go for a long, leisurely walk with my husband. On the way home we would stop at the fruit stand to buy some fresh produce and apple cider. We might even go for a little drive to see some of the Fall colors before we head home.

Probably get up, meet a friend, go up to town, have some coffee, then go to the main park where I could take some photos. That wouldn't take long, so we could then get the bus to this great resivoir place that also has a forest by the side of it, to take even more photos, then sit on the grass right by the water and make bets on which windersurfer will be the next to fall over.
