Autumn is the transition season between summer and winter, best noticed by the color change in leaves and the harvest.
Some wonderful and fun things that happen in the Fall are Halloween, Thanksgiving and Football!

Baking Soda & Vigegar
Baking Soda and Vinegar are two things you can probably find around your house! And chances are...you've probably eaten both of them too. Baking soda is used for baking things like cupcakes and Vinegar is used in salad dressings.
Baking soda and Vinegar are two very different ingredients. Baking soda is a "base" and Vinegar an "acid". If mixed together in the right amounts - the mixture can be downright EXPLOSIVE!!
A Vinegar Fun Fact:
White vinegar can help treat a sunburn. Simply put a tissue over the sunburned skin and lightly spray with white vinegar. It helps restore your skin to the correct acidity and gives a cooling effect.
