Pathways

What to do with all those leaves in the yard? Hmmmm...

V was running around outside the other day in the wet leaves and I didn't want her to slip, so I decided to rake several pathways through the leaves for her. I made two big piles of leaves too, for her jumping enjoyment.

I'm sure that these pictures don't work as well in b&w as they would have in color, but I did the best I could.

The paths kept us occupied for a long, long time.

running!

Then we went on safari, where we saw an elephant.

And a friendly giraffe.

Then, once we were sufficiently chilled to the bone, we came inside for some hot chocolate. It was a good day.

Love the animals! Cute idea. Check out my post for today. I wrote a fairy tale, complete with B & W photos.

love the animal shots. The leaf pathways reminds me of when I was a little girl I used to make a house floor plan by raking the leaves into "walls" and creating rooms and doorways. then I would play with the little acorn people I would make out of acorns and sticks. hahaha

Fighting Windmills

We have that same elephant! Great job with the photos, as always.

ELK

such a good mommy ~ I can feel it!

Amy

I especially love the one of V jumping in the leaves. She looks so determined!

Teresa

That looks like so much fun - we're practically treeless here - so we're pretty much leaf-less too...

Gayle

I need some of these animals as my son is having a jungle themed birthday party. They would make great table decorations. V always seems to have so much fun outdoors.

Toni

I love the one of V running through the leaves - priceless! The animal shots are great, too.

Here's my b&w for today (you'll have to forgive the writing):
