Leaves!



LOVE this picture. Pure joy.

And I needed a smile today: Less than one month after the Focus left us, Ray's Ranger has decided it doesn't want to live without its good pal. The clutch went out on Friday so we, again, are saying goodbye to another vehicle.

Blech.

But because I really don't want to think about that right now, I am focusing on Lola, who had a wonderful weekend "helping" Ray rake up the leaves in the backyard.





I helped a little (very little). At the end, we got lazy and decided to use the wagon to transport leaves to the compost pile. Lola enjoyed this aspect, too, because she got lots of rides!



And playtime!




It was just one of those super fun afternoons. (Well, not so much for Ray - I don't think he loved raking as much as Lola loved playing in the leaf piles...)

Lola, of course, loved jumping into the leaves. But Lola being Lola, she couldn't stand being dirty. So after each jump she had to stop and pick all of the leaves off her clothes.

It was pretty adorable.

So cute.

LOL! Smiled like crazy! Love how she kept picking off the leaves each time! Wonder how clean her room will be at 14...hmmm. Can't wait to see her this weekend!
