Our backyard is full of leaves.
Unfortunately, they are ugly and brown.
Still fun for playing in...
but not great for taking photos of.
Because, you know, as a parent you MUST take those obligatory 'kiddo playing in leaves' photos.
So I ventured off to scope out a nearby park I'd heard was pretty,
and even though we barely got past the playgrounds it did not disappoint.
At least as far as mass quantity of leaves in a color other than grayish-brown.
Baby Fin was pretty easy to photograph.
Now that she can sit on her own I just plopped her down and let her chew on leaves.
Cormac, on the other hand, wanted nothing to do with the camera.
He refused to even look at me, would not let me place him in a pile of pretty leaves,
but did as boys do -
ran around throwing the leaves raucously in the air
and finding sticks to use as swords.
So here's what I got...
I think our leaf season has peaked and fall is fading to winter...
how about yours?
If not - get out there and take those obligatory leaf photos!
Your kiddos will someday thank you.
