Playing in the Leaves - Friday October 28, 2011

This afternoon I took the kids over to my parents' house to play in the leaves (we have only one tree and the leaves are still attached!).  Last year, Ella couldn't walk at this time so this was her first experience with leaf jumping.  I was a bit concerned that she wouldn't be interested because most of time she doesn't like to get dirty, however, she was game for it right away.

At first, Nan (my mom) raked a pile of leaves and Ella ran over and sat down in the middle.  She was happy to just sit there for awhile and have Nan continue to rake leaves on top of her.  We tried to get her to throw the leaves up in the air, but she liked it better when we did the throwing. 

When it was time to go, Ella kept saying 'again, again'.  She wanted more leaves piled on top of her!  It was so funny to see her learning about this fun tradition.  It's hard to find activities to do outside during these few months of fall, so hopefully our own leaves come down soon before we have to worry about the snow!  Here are some pics of our afternoon...
