While summer is my preferred season, early fall is also great when it comes to things to do, especially on the weekends.

From Octoberfests to apple picking, pumpkin picking, hayrides, and haunted houses, before the weather gets too cold, there are plenty of things to keep you and your family entertained.

Except when the weather is like it has been the last few days.

The on and off driving rain and wind that we've had for most of this week is expected to last well into the weekend, so that will unfortunately put a damper on outdoor plans.

So when Mother Nature puts the kibosh on your outdoor plans, what do you do to keep yourself and your family busy on weekends like this? Tell us in the comments!
