Fall Fun with Daddy

Last Sunday....

It seemed our ENTIRE neighborhood was on Fall clean-up mode...including my hubby. I drove down our street to find almost every yard being raked, mowed or weeded. It was a beautiful Fall day and most likely our last because this weekend was cold and rainy. It seems winter is coming early this year.

We have only one lonely tree (well we do have 2 small trees on either side of our house but they don't produce a lot of leaves) in our yard. It lives in our side yard along the corner property that we share with our neighbor. It's a gorgeous tree. I think it is some type of Maple Leaf but I'm not sure. I was never good at tree names. I guess some would say we are lucky to have only one small tree to have to clean up after all it's leaves fall off. Yes, we would agree but it would be nice to have a few more in the front for more privacy. I think we are going to work on "curb appeal" next Summer. Our yard needs some more pizazz!

Chris was so excited to rake up the leaves with Ryan and play in the leaf pile with both kiddies. He took many pics and video. I created a montage for your enjoyment.

Below are some pictures of their Fall Fun! Ryan loved it....Kara not so much.

I love this leaf color.

Kara thinking, "what's so special about this?"

Wow I can't believe you still have roses in bloom! In November. That is crazy. Your Leaf-raking Saturday sounded like a lot of fun!

OMG! You did an awesome job with that video!! I loved it! Their so cute in the leaves! Ha Ha! Did you know that I surprisingly play that song??? I say surprisingly because I never play rag time songs, I like the more laid back prettish songs but I did it for my Mom. Anyways, what an awesome video!
