I said let's walk this way and they ran that way. I said look at this leaf and they had to go to the bathroom. I said look at the camera and they looked anywhere else. It was ridiculous. And look at the leaves, people. They were gorgeous and everywhere - "ripe" for the picking!
I finally coerced the kids to gather a few of the fallen treasures (I was planning for us to iron them between wax paper but lost the joy QUICKLY)
and even got a picture with them all looking at the camera.
Nice, eh? So happy to be there.
To sum up. . . My plan to celebrate Fall with a leaf walk fell flat.
