We have a lot of these on the ground these days. I suppose this is one reason why living in the midwest is a good thing. We get to experience all four seasons, some shorter than others, but four seasons nonetheless. The one we are currently in is my all time favorite.
Part of the joy of Fall is the ever changing leaves. From green to yellow, gold, orange, and red. Then slowly, one by one, they fall off the trees.
Last weekend one of our dear neighbors raked what was to be called "the world's biggest pile of leaves" by our little ones. They were so sweet as to let Noah, Penelope, and Eloise play in it all day long. They buried themselves in it like it was sand on a beach. Eloise even braved a climb to the top, my little mountaineer.
They ran, jumped, flipped, and slid the day away. It's so fun to be a kid.
Lately, our days have been filled with taking in all that is Fall. It is definitely one of our shorter seasons so enjoying every minute of it seems more than necessary.
Many scooter rides have been taken trying our hardest to zoom over as many as leaves as possible...
We've even noticed that our neighborhood streets have been filled with lots of these, yours too? Don't worry, these aren't ours, we aren't that quick with the yard work! ;-)
We have been receiving our fair share of pretty leaf bouquets gathered by our favorite little hands.
And we've been enjoying an endless number of walks looking at all the changing colors...
Crunching on an exponential number of leaves.
Here's to more amazing Fall days!
PS. I have loved all your guesses to the kids' Halloween costumes! Some of you even guessed right while others have given me some great ideas for coordinating costumes for next year. We have a Halloween shin-dig this weekend where the kids get to wear their costumes so I'll try to get some pictures of them in their completed costumes to show you what I made for them!
