We scooped them into 2 big piles which the girls promptly destroyed. A few neighbors also came over to join in. At one point I think a tunnel had been constructed.
Orange, red, yellow, purple, brown and green filled the air and clung to the girls' hair as they rolled around in the piles. The scent of fall, and earth, and childhood all colliding into a single happy memory. Feeling grateful for the beautiful fall season, a yard that caters to our outdoor adventures and our new leaf blower which has earned it's keep this year.
