Just an Ordinary Fall DayPosted: October 28, 2012
Yesterday was so productive! We had some extra help with the kiddos here this weekend, so we finally got down to the business of raking and closing up for winter.
Starting with the backyard….
You’ll notice a few sports teams were represented by Sam and Henry.
DT lit a fire….
Look! Remember our little grass-growing project? It [mostly] worked!
The kids worked out a great system for cleaning out the window wells. Teamwork, ya!
Our hard backyard-raking work was rewarded with S’mores before noon. Why not?
It turns out that the front yard was the place for a serious leaf pile.
I love this one – Henry just landed and Sam has major air time:
The side of the house is lined with leaf bags – I think Henry counted 20? That’s a lotta leaves!
Empty patio….it’s kind of desolate and sad!
Leafless yards….(until we woke up this morning)….
There is definitely that feeling of impending hibernation in the neighborhood. I’m not ready for winter!
The rest of the day was spent relaxing and we rounded out the evening with a roaring fire and a Halloween tradition, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Needless to say – the four of us slept well last night!
What have you been up to this weekend?
