do we have a rake?

we went north in search of fall leaves, cooler weather, and family fun... okay and for the pics.
as i packed our stuff, alex kept asking if we had a rake.

his preschool talked about fall. leaves fall, you rake them up- you jump in the pile.
it's a foreign idea to us. alex loved it. it's all he could talk about. (we actually don't even have a rake! 4 outside brooms, and no rake. pathetic.) i told him we'd all use our hands as rakes.
we got there (nau campus) and the leaves were barely turning colors. not only that, but the maintenance guys were top-notch, cuz the leaves that had fallen were raked up. we made do.

I love the pictures!! You are so BEAUTFIUL!!! We were up in Utah this weekend and Powell found a red leaf and thought it was a feather--since we don't have colored leaves he didn't know what it was!!

I am so jealous of your family pics. What a cute idea to get pics with fall leaves. And yes, that is so foreign to us. It's one of those things I only see in the movies!!

P.S. I miss Garrett's poems he used to write in the comments.

Your family pictures look great. If you ever need more fall leaves just come on up to UT. We have plenty for you.

Hey! How are you guys?! It's Lindsay Garns (Sterling's wife). I have been trying to figure out what to do with all of these cute sayings my kids say. They were written on a notepad. When I saw that you had put them to the side of your blog, I thought, perfect! I hope you don't mind. We are excited to see you guys over Christmas break!
