Our trees have deposited their beautiful foliage to our yard. For some reason this year it seems ten times more fun than in years past and I don't know if it is our unseasonably warm temperatures or Mini Me's age. One day we set out to play in the backyard when we had a little buddy over to play.
Instead of the typical rake-the-leaves-into-a-pile-and-jump, I started by raking a big maze-like path through the leaves. Mini Me called it the labyrinth, reminiscent of one of our favorite places to play. Both boys - and later Little Lady - had a blast running through the leaf maze.
They ran along the twisting path, timed each other by counting how fast the other could make it all the way through, and raced the toy lawnmower down the path.
When the leaf maze got old, they took turns raking piles of leaves for each other to jump in. Mini Me also had fun making leaf angels in the piles. It was a great morning in the yard!
