Raking Leaves

This morning the kids and I tackled the first 5% of our yearly yard raking.  Probably 95% of the leaves are still on our three giant trees, but even so, the yard was covered!  While Paul used his awesome muscle power to help a friend from church move,

my three cuties and I had breakfast
made a pretty impressive block tower,

and then headed outside for some fun (and work!) in the leaves while Larkyn had her morning nap.

Summer was seriously an AWESOME helper and not only raked, but also helped me bag a lot of the leaves.

Colton enjoyed raking...though sometimes he raked the leaves OUT of the pile ;)

Once we got a big enough pile to jump in the kids lost interest in the raking and had much more fun sliding into the leaves,

burying each other,

and having leaf fights (seriously their giggling was contagious as this next video shows)

They also loved jumping in the piles...I lost count how many times they jumped in they had so much fun!


haha - love this action shot of Colton chasing Summer to throw leaves at her...

After Larkyn woke up and we filled her tummy, she was ready to come out too!
Larkyn sat in the carsseat and we moved her from leaf pile to leaf pile as Summer and I bagged up our piles.

Just for fun, here is a picture of Larkyn and Summer - both sitting in the same bumbo in a pile of leaves - both 3 months - both with their puppy Tucker :) ...

Larkyn - 3 months
Summer - 3 months
