Last year, was her first experience with a big pile leaves after we raked the yard. She didn't get the concept of jumping into a big pile of leaves, so we just plopped her into the pile. She loved it!
Now that she's older, I was really looking forward to seeing her reaction to the leaves. Last week, Joe cleaned up the yard and made a huge pile of leaves for Grace to play in. She loved it! She had such a great time running around the yard, jumping into the pile, crunching the leaves!
When Grace is having this much fun, it's very hard for me to get her to look at the camera!
She tripped and fell and landed face-first into the soft dirt. She fell pretty hard and I thought our playtime was over. She simply got up and said, "I alwight" and jumped right back into the pile of leaves!
Grace had so much fun on such a beautiful afternoon! We even saw a hot air balloon! Grace spotted it first!
This was just the first half of the leaves from our trees. Joe raked some more this past weekend and we still have leaves falling from the oak trees today (our maple tree is pretty bare). Hopefully, we'll get a few more leaf jumping days in before they are gone for good!
