Leaf Raking

Lily is quite happy, because not only is it leaf raking day, but she has a secret.

Something wonderful is hidden within these leaves.

Ta da!

I think that leaf raking day must be the best day of the year: not only do big piles of leaves magically appear all over the yard, but you get to play outside all day and even eat all of your meals outside!

And for the adults it isn't all bad, either. Especially at the end of the day when we all collapse next to an outdoor fire, some other tired out neighbors pile into the yard, and we all just relax, chat, and roast hot dogs.

This must be suburbia's equivalent of a harvest day.

Oh, what a lovely day! We are about due for one of our own. I'll have to try to make it at least half as fun as yours!

Lilly looks so mature in these photos. I mean I know I've never met her but the joy in her face makes her look so grown up!

I think we have at least one more such day this fall, too, Kerry! I wish you could come by for some hotdogs afterwards. :-) I know, Aindrea: I was so glad Ben took these photos. I love them, and of course I love the people in them.
