Fall Leaves

IMG_9726Our yard… has 1 tree. Well 1 1/2… and the trees we do have arent very tall or big… in fact, Im not sure one is a tree at all :-\ might just be some weird hybrid bush. So basically, we have no trees.

The only trees around our house are in a neighbors yard…

From those trees our boys get to enjoy some leaf jumping… but very little.

So when we went to my Father in Laws this past weekend… they were all about exploring his leaf filled yard!

We’re talking like an acre of leaves πŸ™‚ and a foot deep.

I didn’t get many photos of Caleb in them…
He was to busy playing to really sit for any pictures… Usually thats how Taite is…

But that particular day Taite was more “in my face” than usual πŸ˜‰

Heres some of the fun I captured.


The next one is Travis & his Dad.
His Dad never lets me take his picture! Hes a bit camera shy πŸ™‚
and so when I direct him and Travis together yesterday, his exact words were
“I’m not dressed for pictures.” πŸ˜‰ – I told him Id photoshop him some nice clothes on HAHA.. But obviously I didnt.
I think he looks cool with his old coat and farmer hat. Its how I know him!
Just because a coat has a few stains, doesn’t mean you aren’t “dressed for pictures.”
and like I told Travis last night “You will be glad I took this one day.”



As you can tell, Taites a pretty expressive little guy.


My friend Rebecca came by for a few while we were there.
I had to try her Nikon D700… and for fun she snagged my picture with it.



Grandma Anne let me get a picture too πŸ˜‰ and a very candid smile at that!


I then decided to put Owen into the leaves…


He kept falling over when I let him go…


…and I wasnt sure he would like it…


He looked at me as if I was crazy for putting him there…


but… he eventually began to see the fun in it πŸ™‚



Isn’t the light beautiful there?! Oh man I could of done a million session that day!
Travis’ Dads land is amazing…



So, do your kids enjoy the leaves?
