Look VERY carefully in the leaf pile (Wordless Wednesday)

My youngest child is in the leaf pile catching a ride from his big brother. Can you see him?

I wish my neighbor's tree would shed all it's leaves. I want a leaf pile. Then I want to grind them all up before it gets cold.

Oh is it a turtle?

It's my youngest child sitting in the middle of the leaves catching a ride, lol

Evelyn said...

I'm thinking there's a turtle there...how cool!!! Thanks for stopping by. :-)

mail4rosey said...

It's a kid, lol. He does have his days where he moves as slow as a turtle though...especially when it's time to get ready for school. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Our neighbors probably wish our trees wouldn't shed, lol. The John Deere is broken (in need of repair) and doing it by hand takes a LOT longer.

Joyce Lansky said...

Looks like turtle surprise!

Thanks for stopping by.

Thx, your telemarketer sign was a hoot.

Emilee Roberts said...

LOL I bet he enjoyed that!

mail4rosey said...

It looked fun enough I briefly considered jumping in w/him. Briefly... ;)

Theresa said...

He has the right idea. Just hide IN the leaves instead of raking them, then get a free ride to the curb lol.

Leovi said...

Yes, I think it's a great job of autumn, good photo. A greeting.

Mimi B said...

Oh my goodness, that's hysterical! My boys love leaf piles and were out there raking on their own today!

Masshole Mommy said...

Hahahaha! That's awesome.

When we first moved up north (no raking the leaves in south Florida) I saw people taking leaves to the curb and I thought that was awesome that the city did that service.

We don't live in the city anymore, so we burn them. There is a hill though, that leads to where the burn pile goes, and we let him ride down that. :)

Is that a mutant ninja turtle?

mail4rosey said...

thanks, Leovi. I was just looking at your fish on the water, that's amazing how you do that!!!

mail4rosey said...

I KNOW, Mimi...seasons that get the kids WANTING to do work, I love it!! :)

mail4rosey said...

mail4rosey said...

It's not, Wayne, but he is one of their biggest fans (and could sing the song lyrics before he could spell his last name, lol). :)

Paula Miller said...

What fun! When my oldest was little he used to be afraid of leaves. When they blew around he thought they were chasing him lol.

Happy WW :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

LOL! This is cute! I see his hair. Have a great Wednesday.

mail4rosey said...

That seems to be the consensus, lol! :)

mail4rosey said...

You too, Judy. Nice to see you. :)

Brandy said...

That's awesome! We don't have that many leaves here yet ...

CipBtRO said...

Slowly and carefully, Otherwise there are big problems :)

Charlotte said...

Fab photo! I thought it was a hedgehog at first. ;o)

Angelina said...

Hahaha, cute! Leaf piles are a fun favorite! You look like you live in a beautiful place! Reminds me of my grandfather's ranch in Connecticut. Happy WW!

Jennifer said...

Lol! I didn't see him at first! Guess it's that time of year eh? The kids love it!

Secondary Roads said...

Oh what fun!

Kathryn Lavallee said...

That is too cute the way the top of his head is just barely visible! Looks like a fun way to celebrate fall! :)

Debras Dollars said...

I love to watch kids play in the leaves. I bet they had a lot of fun. You took a great photo your son blends in so much with the leaves. This is a fun photo for Wordless Wednesday. Thanks for sharing it.

LuAnn Braley said...

Following from voiceBoks WW group. What a great idea! Leaf rides! :O)

Sarah said...

Hahaha, I want to ride around like that! I'm sure my kiddos would love it too. We don't have leaves on the ground just yet, my boys can't wait for them to start coming down -- we've been talking about the different colors and why they turn.

JamericanSpice said...

Such an adorable capture!

Kids should enjoy such fun!

BusyWorkingMama said...

Oh I bet he was enjoying that ride!

jamie tucker said...

mail4rosey said...

If my husband were here right now, he'd say you could have ours. ;)

Jennifer H said...

kristi said...

That's cute...no wonder that pile of leaves was a little heavier than a typical pile of leaves! lol

jMo said...

I can kind of see a head, I think. They look like they're having a blast. What a great big bro.

Glad he knew he was there, given what usually happens to fallen leaves!

Kristin Aquariann said...

I thought his head was a turtle until I read your caption, too! Cute moment. ^.^

That looks so fun!

ReviewsSheROTE Pamela R said...

HOURS of fun!!! Good thing you have a strong older son to do the pulling --Free's you up for CAMERA DUTY ;^D

Cathy Kennedy said...

Holy cow, I wouldn't have spotted that kiddo amongst all those leaves. What fun! I wish I could do stuff like that again. Now, I'd just sneeze my head off because of stupid allergies. Thanks for the visit. Great photo!

The Budget Diet said...

I live in a part of the country where fall does not exist, but I have fond memories of jumping in giant piles of leaves growing up! Being pulled in a pile of leaves looks like even more fun...why didn't I think of that???

Theresa said...

We live right outside the city so we have to take care of our own. The neighbors aren't keen on anyone burning leaves here. We went through over 50 large yard bags last year and hauled them all to the dump. It was a lot of work!

Monica said...

lol...I had to look closely, his little head was blending right in with the leaves!

Gina said...

LOL. My little boy will not let us do that- yet. :)

Mariah Mcmillian said...

Such a warm photo Rosey. Lol ...so many people thought it was a turtle. Too funny :D
