As a kid, I always remember Dad raking our yard full of leaves and then us kids jumping into the huge piles that were made. So when I noticed the massive amounts of dead leaves littering my yard, I knew it was time to grab a rake and start making piles.
But what I also remember as a kid, was making mazes out of the leaves. A bunch of us neighborhood kids would pick one of our yards and we'd spend hours designing theses mazes/floor layouts that we would then spend the rest of the day playing in. So while Jon and the boys were busy raking up large piles, I had started planning out the maze.
Let's just say the day was fantastic and the boys got a big hoot out of my maze.
The downside: We all came in with bites up and down our arms and I was lucky enough to have one on my forehead. Awesome.
Enjoy a few random shots of our family outdoor fun....

I love Fall!!
Next year we decided we're going to make a big "M" out in the yard for Michigan! Go Blue!
