Ahhh, the joys of Fall!

We have a large, leaf-filled tree that canopies over the girls' swing set. It's great in the summer because it shades the little house at the top and makes it feel like a real tree house. I have no idea what kind of tree it is but it is one of the first to lose it's leaves in the fall -- and boy does this one tree have a lot of leaves.

The girls have decided that having this tree rain leaves down on their little house is possibly the single greatest thing that's ever happened to them! They climb up to the house and then pick up the leaves -- one by one -- and send them down the slide. If they run out of leaves in the house, they'll climb back down, pick leaves up off of the ground and climb back up with them. This game can go on and on for a really long time and they're just as excited about the last leaf they send down the slide as they were about the first!

My funny, funny girls!
