We live in a part of Texas where we normally have 2 seasons: very hot and very cold. Rarely do we get to enjoy post card worthy spring and fall, but I’m thrilled to say this year has been the exception. Not only did we enjoy a long and lovely spring, but we are experiencing a glorious fall! Exceptional weather, gorgeous trees and lots of leaves to play in!
This past Saturday we spent almost the entire day just savoring every moment of an ideal day. We headed out to rake the yard and moms, if you play your cards right, your children will beg to rake the leaves themselves. 😉
Of course, anything that big brother does, little sister must supervise…
…and eventually take over.
While Elliott raked up a lovely pile, Alex snacked on some pecans he uncovered in his raking efforts.
Snack time was over when it was time to stomp the leaves.
Break time! The kiddos kicked back and stared up at the many colors of leaves and tried to decide just which type of tree was their favorite.
I got down there with them and lost myself in the beautiful colors.
The guys headed inside for a bit while Elliott and I played some more outside.
We walked up and down our street no less than 17 times so Elliott could kick through the fallen leaves.
We ended our lovely fall afternoon with a little picnic and quiet time.
Tell me how you and your family are enjoying fall! It’s my favorite season. What’s yours?
