What Some See As a God Awful Chore....

Others See As a God Given Gift...

The kids were raking the leaves futilely for days until Phil finally went out to help them create the ultimate leaf pile:

They decide it is too big for them to jump into, so they drag over the plastic picnic table (it never really got used as anything besides a diving board anyway!)

 Maggie?  Anyone seen Maggie?

Andrew goes in deep:

Eamon just realized that not only does he get to jump in the leaves, but also throw them!

 Boys vs. Girl!!!!
Girl wins.
Typical :)

Whatcha doing J-P? 
Just chillin.

And after all that jumping, they finished raking and putting in bags. 
They worked really hard to clean that yard.
We treated them to Coldstone for dessert.
Happy Kids, Happy Parents, it's a win-win!


  1. How fun.
    I LOVE the look of pure joy on their sweet faces.

  2. So cute! The boys loving playing in leaves too!

  3. adorable pictures!!! playing in the leaves in the best. :)

  4. That looked so fun. I don't think I've ever seen a leaf pile that big! My kids are so funny how they hold their nose before jumping in the leaf piles! :)
