Fall leaves sure make for a lot of fun in the backyard. It’s taken a long time for our trees to grow enough to produce a lot of leaves. This year Mom could actually rake up some nice piles for us to play in, and we had a great time!
We don’t recommend playing in just any leaves as they can be dirty and have lots of bad stuff in them, but we know these leaves are fresh and from our own trees, so they are pretty safe. They also make a great place to hide toys in, or to track squirrels who must have run up the tree!
Our outdoor Pup-A-Brewski toy is getting a real workout this fall. It is Olivia’s toy, but I keep stealing it from her. Mom feels bad, so she buries it in the leaves to see who can find it. I enjoy diving right into that project!
Once I have it, it is time for a play bow to get Olivia to chase me. I really don’t care about the toy, I just love to chase and be chased.
I think Olivia is getting frustrated because I refuse to give up her toy. It won’t be long and she will over power me, but as long as I can still outsmart her, things will keep going my way.
Oh boy, Olivia is steamed as a clam! She walked away and decided to chomp on the tiny twig she found. I think she is giving me a really mean look.
Mom intervened and took the toy away from me, tossing it into the middle of the yard. Ready set go! Who will get it this time, the race is on!
Oh dear! Olivia actually beat me to it! She snatched it up and was off running! How can I get it back.
Back at the leaf pile I tried to get the toy back by instilling fear, but it didn’t seem to work real well. Olivia knows I’m all teeth and no bite.
No luck, Olivia had her toy, and she was not about to give it back to me, racing through the fall leaves with her toy is too much fun! The fall leaves are great! Do you enjoy playing in them at your house?
