Fall "Fun"

Fall is one of those seasons that really does exist outside of Texas. We have enjoyed the weather, and the leaves (sorry, did not get good pictures of those), apple picking and Christopher even got to try apple cider for the first time. It has been too cold to take Aiden to the pumpkin patch, so I am looking forward to that next year.

Then came the best part of all. The fall chore. On Saturday, Chris and Christopher decided to do undertake round 1 of raking leaves. Our backyard has a huge semi-circle of trees surrounding it, so we had no shortage of the foliage lying on the ground. Thankfully, our homeowner's left us with the gift of aleaf blower. While, Chris manned that machine, Christopher grabbed a rake and worked right along side of him.

It took them about an hour and a half, but when they were done, it looked great. I loved watching the two of them working together and how much Christopher loves to help out.

Then, that night, we had huge wind gusts and lots of rain, and Sunday morning looked like nothing had been done. But, at least Christopher had fun! These pics do not adequately show the gigantic grin on his face as he dove in. But trust me, it was ear to ear!
