Yes - an entire family event simply to jump in leaves. It's how we roll.
|We started like we start most things - with Paxton clinging to my leg. (I can't remember why Piper wanted to be held but that's out of the ordinary.)|
|It didn't take them long to join the party though. (See cousin Kate gently guiding Pax to the pile? So sweet.)|
|Kate is a self-proclaimed "girly girl" and didn't want to get leaves in her hair at first, but then she got right in there. I was proud of her.|
|Then Xander wanted to use the leaf blower and started blowing right in Piper's face|
|She was not a fan of that, so my brother saved her|
|Uncle Daniel the hero|
|Then my dad walks around the corner with 2 huge jars of pickles. No explanation needed, right?|
|Rolling down the hill. Sort of.|
|Then Uncle Daniel explained a game called "King of the Hill" and they were all about it.|
|While the big kids pushed and rolled around with each other, the twins wrestled with Mimi|
|Then Kate had to go to a birthday party, so the rest of us went on a nature walk|
We've totally enjoyed the warm weather this Fall so far. The future forecast is showing temperatures in the 30s and 40s though, and Christmas is exactly 6 weeks from today (!), so I think I may start decorating.
