I loved growing up in the PNW. But I must admit, due to the rainy weather, there was no playing in piles of leaves...unless you wanted to get wet and end up with slugs in your hoodie. ;) The leaves here in Utah are crisp, dry, and too irresistible not to play in. So during Ava's nap earlier today, Brooks and I went outside...and loved every minute of stomping and throwing and rolling in our beautiful, golden birch tree leaves.
PS - I probably should've raked said leaves...but I think we'll be out enjoying them for a few more days. :)
