Last Saturday was the most fantastically beautiful day! It was 75 degrees, sunny and so much fun. We had a family work day outside and everyone was involved. All our trees had dropped their leaves and so we raked, piled, jumped, scooped and eventually they were all burned. Later that night we had a bonfire with some friends and roasted hotdogs and dined on smores.

Here are some of my favorite moments of the day in pictures.

Jaden and Evely jumping in the leaves! Evely said that she didn’t remember ever jumping in them before, so this was a special event for her.


Lost in the leaves….

Julian is officially too “big” this year to jump in the leaves and had a lot more fun burning them. He has become quite the help.

Snickers doing a little leaf sniffing. Our puppy was completely exhausted at bedtime.

Many hands make light work.

  1. Your pictures sure bring back memories. Who ever forgets the fun to be had in raking up a huge pile of leaves to dive in? Even now, while on a camping trip and walking around the campground, I still find leaves to kick around just for the noise! It’s good to see the family making great memories. Thanks for sharing!
