Leaves Leaves Leaves...and More Leaves.

I finally took Audrey outside for her first swing. The weather here went from summer to quite cold quite fast. Today was a perfect day to stop hibernating so outside we went to frolic in the leaves. And leaves there are!!!!

This is the part of the lawn without trees. You can only imagine the amount of leaves under the 8 100 year old maples.

Yes that is my husband and Peyton attempting to mulch some of them into the ground. This year I refuse to rake all of them and cart them off to the tree line.

There is just not enough time in the day this year. I enjoy raking though. It is kind of zen like, but with the cold and Audrey being so little I just don't have the time.

So instead my husband can mow over them while the girls and I make piles and take nice pictures.

I'm glad the weather let you go outside! Ugh.. I would boycott the raking as well.
