Boys and Leaves….my favorite part of Autumn

Sharing is caring!

Ahhh to be a little boy surrounded by leaves. Leaves you don’t remember seeing last year and are genuinely amazed at seeing this year. Here he comes…his name is Trouble…

Just look at how intense their encounter is….red-blooded American boy, age 3, studying the unsuspecting group of discarded leaves, age 9 months…

Poor little buggers…they obviously don’t know what will happen next. He’s got them in his sights and…

As I suspected…he’s practicing for his Ph.D. in Botany. God Bless his little heart.

Hmmm…these specimens are just right. Yes, indeed. I’ll have that doctorate completed in no time!
But, uh oh, trouble lurks in the woods. There are Paul Bunyan types afoot!

Run boy! Your Daddy’s on the loose! And he’s armed with leaves! Lots and lots of leaves!

Whoa…he’s so fast, he blurs the picture! Yeah, that’s why it’s blurred….it has nothing to do with his Mother’s amateur photography skills. Yeah, that’s the ticket…look at him go!

And in the end, he is victorious….a boy playing with leaves…that’s all.

This post is dedicated to Sonny Boy’s “Auntie S” from CA, who constantly asks for new pictures of him to be posted on this blog. He sees you too, “Auntie S”…..he sees you too.

    OMG! The cuteness factor is over the top. It’s just too much, I have to cover my eyes. Nope, too late. Even when he’s blurry, he’s

    He’s so cute. Too bad (or is that good?) that we don’t have many leaves on the ground here in Texas. You don’t have to rake them, but can’t play in them either.
