The weather has been so cold, and we've all had a touch of something or other for the last week or so, that I didn't want to get out in the yard and rake those leaves that had to be done. This weekend though, we had fantastic weather. Just look at that gorgeous sunshine in the pictures! That weather provided the perfect opportunity to do yard work, and a lot of it. It turned out just me and little man were free to do it...and do it we did. My son worked his little tush off!
He got his wheelbarrow out of the garage and got right to busy with his mama.
He raked quite a bit, and this picture is not just for show, that boy was busy! He sings (loudly) when he's happy (I love that), and one of the neighbors came over to comment on it when little man went in the house for a water break. Turns out, I'm not the only one who thinks his singing is awesome. ;)
I let him use the smaller blower, turned on low, for the first time ever, and he thought that was cream of the crop as far as yard work goes.
Well, except for the free rides down the hill to the burn pile. Nothing beats those. ;)
It literally took all day, but it was satisfying and fun (and tiring too). There are still some leaves up there, but I'm thinking we'll just have one more go for the front yard and then we'll be done with it for the season (at least for the front of the house).
Anyone else busy with Fall leaves right now?
