Fall Fun

A couple of weeks ago we finally got motivated to clean up the yard. Little did we know what a huge chore this would be as we have a couple of large trees in our yard that have dropped a ton of leaves. However, we had lots of fun. Dan would blow all of the leaves into a pile and the kids would come right behind him and jump into the piles which were sometimes waiste high on them.

Sweet and innocent, right?

Madison loved jumping in the leaves and then picking them up and throwing them in the air and letting them land on her head. She actually was a great help getting the leaves into the trash bags. At one point I looked and her and she as she smiled real big at me I noticed her smile was brown....she had laughed so much while jumping in the leaves her mouth was full of dirt. I wish I had gotten a picture but instead I got her a big glass of water.

Eli was crazy (surprise, surprise). He was hard to get a good picture of but I thought this one was pretty cute. He loves to do anything outside, expecially if he can follow his dad around and pretend to do what he is doing. I'm pretty sure he is watching Dan with the blower here.

This was Lillie's first day in the walker, which she loved. It was the perfect day outside and she could look around and watch the kids play. She sat in that spot on the patio for nearly an hour that day while we worked and played. What a great baby!!
