At our previous house we had one tree. I use the term "tree" loosely. It was really more of a very tall stick in the middle of the front yard. When we were looking at houses this past summer, one of our requirements was that the home we bought have several established trees. Well, we got 'em. One of the bonuses (or downsides if you're a pessimist - which I'm not) are all the leaves that we now have on the ground this time of year. I spent several minutes raking the backyard on Saturday afternoon and came up with a pretty good pile of leaves. Of course, I immediately thought - "PHOTO OP!" We had so much fun playing around and getting dirty. Little Man loves leaves!
