leaf play

Yesterday was a beautiful fall day, and for so many reasons we needed to be outside. Everyone gets along better in the fresh air and with extra room to run and play. We started the morning going to a new (to us) park, playing and having a picnic. Then we headed up the mountain to feed the fish in the rise of the Popo Agie River. We headed home for a nap, where only Timothy actually took one. So after nap, or in place of nap for some, we went back out and raked leaves into big piles. As soon as I began raking, Charlotte asked if she could jump in them. She spent an hour jumping and playing in big, soft piles of leaves. She insisted that I join and I obliged. Timothy was happy just to watch, but joined in a little bit too.
After we had exhausted ourselves we headed out for a walk to see if Chuck Faulkner had his horses out for cart rides. Thankfully he did. We hopped in with some friends of ours (who just adopted 2, 7-year-olds from Russia) and headed out for the usual Chuck adventure. Afterward, we headed on and Mama took everyone out for a Thai food dinner.


  1. Sounds like a very busy day and a long one too especially for MaMa. Love you all, CG

  2. Sounds like a wonderful day was had by all. Super pictures. Can't believe how much the children have grown since I was out there in December. Look forward to see you in 2 weeks.

  3. How did you get photos of you and the kids ? Someone take them ?

  4. Ok, how do I post something so you know who I am ? Mom

  5. Oh, what you don't want to be Mrs. Anonymous?? You probably have to sign in with an account-or you can just sign your name at the end.

    And I set the camera on a timer-I could,'t resist.
