Falling leaves

All those trees that we loved so much when we bought our house have started to drop their leaves. The yard is beautiful with lots of different colors. Raking has begun in earnest. Fortunately, everyone in our house likes the task in some form or another. Either actually picking up the leaves, or at least raking them into a pile and then jumping in it. Another popular activity is scooping leaves onto the trampoline, then jumping them off again. Good times.

Here are the kids working in the far corner of the yard.

Resting after their labors.

Looks like fun! Your yard is huge which means ton's of raking. Remember raking in Alabama? That took a long time.

When I was growing up we had a huge front and back yard and TONS of trees. My mom would rack paths for us to run through. It was lots of fun.

Those are some really cute pictures. My favorite memories of living in Cincinnati are always fall memories in the leaves! Must be an Ohio thing :)
