Brothers' Lawn Service

Yesterday while Tater was napping and the Nugget was watching a video, I took Spork out for his first leaf-raking experience.  Kids' rakes are under $10 on Amazon, and they are worth every cent.  If you have a fall birthday child to buy for, this is a perfect gift!  Unlike his big brother at this age, Spork's movements are slow, deliberate, and predictable.  I knew he wouldn't stray far from my side, and he toddled around babbling to the leaves and scraping his tiny green rake on the sidewalk while I made a quick pile.  

The Nugget spied us through the window and could not resist the invitation to "help" with the leaves.

 Turns out little brother is a natural too.

There couldn't be a more perfect way to spend an afternoon.

  1. Cute children! Giving your lawn and garden attention during autumn is a great practice that can quickly turn unhealthy if done excessively.
