a walk in the leaves


around this same time last year, pia and i went for a walk in the leaves
yesterday, we were driving down a pretty tree lined street and pia asked
"mama, can we walk in the leaves?"


so i parked the car, and by golly that is exactly what we did






it wasn't raining that day, but pia insisted she needed her umbrella









this little girl will be in kindergarten this time next year
boy, i sure am going to miss her
who is going to take the time to 
stop me in the middle of the afternoon and ask to go for a walk in the leaves?

Lovely autumnal photos. I'm sure your lovely girls will continue to do impulsive things with you!
Our weather here in England is changing to a real autumn and the leaves are falling. Looking forward to lovely 'colourful' walks.

So cute! I don't want fall to end. I can't wait til Ellie asks me to do stuff like this :)

Eleni said...

Of course she needed the umbrealla - the bright blue is such a prefect contrast to the rich red of the fallen leaves, plus, it provides numerous photo-posing opportunities.....your little Pia is a natrual born blogger!
