Leaf Play...Part 2 (Happy BDay Abbey)

Several weeks ago on a GORGEOUS fall day, we headed to Grandma Nita's house to celebrate Abbey's birthday. When we arrived, Bryce was out back jumping off a swing into a huge leaf pile.

Maddox has always been rather timid about trying new things...so I was quite surprised when he started jumping off the swing without hesitation. He had a great time!

I LOVE the look on Maddox's face. :-)

Unable to jump from a swing yet, Evey got her thrills triking around the yard.

Olivia took some time to (very seriously) rake the leaf pile up a little bigger.

After all that serious raking, I was quite surprised when Olivia cut loose jumping in the pile!

And if anyone else has a gun, Maddox MUST have one as well. Sigh.

The neighbor dog was barking his head off until I came over and took his picture. Another satisfied customer. ;-)

Olivia was having a little trouble swinging...until Michael gave her a PUSH.

Milo joined in the leaf pile fun.

It was a fantastic day. Hope Abbey enjoyed the fun as well...HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABBEY!
