I recommend pumpkin spice syrup. The food of fall is better than any other season. Pumpkin pie, let’s eat! I love fall because of the fragrance in the air, the food, this shade of orange (fall leaf orange), all the colors of the leaves and of course, the pumpkin pie! Pumpkin pie I think is the best dessert ever! Better than ice cream!!!!!!!!!!!!






I think my mother’s recipe for pumpkin pie is the best! (Sometimes I like a touch of ice cream on top!) I don’t think I’ve ever tried pumpkin bread but I bet it’s great! I love everything about fall! Fall is my favorite season! When I go to dance class, I like to look out the window at the trees and watch them changing colors (there are a lot of trees on the way to dance class!). I love jumping in the leaves! I love going to Chester and Essex in the fall.






In Essex there’s this field by the ocean that I like to dance in (Irish step dance of course). I recommend going to Essex in the fall! Don’t waste the season while it’s here!
