Utah Fall Leaf Fun

When we arrived in Utah, the big Ash tree out back had only dropped a handful of leaves. A few days later, and the backyard was covered! We hit the leaf jackpot perfectly this year, and, remembering their leaf extravaganza from last November, Samantha and Amelia couldn’t wait to dive in. With the earthy smell, crinkly sound and crisp feel, Meredith was in sensory input heaven.

2015 in the leaves… they were so little!

Samantha and Amelia helped rake up a pile for about two seconds before giving up.

Meredith had just woken from her nap and begged to be a part of the action.

The girls experimented with different variations of crashing into the leaves, including standing up.

I wonder why mom hasn’t fed me any of these yet?
