James does Fall

November 3, 2009

Yeah, I know, I can't seem to stop posting pictures of my kids these days.

What's that you say?... You think my kids are boring?... Well you know what?... I think your kids are a little bit slow.

So there.

And for those of you who actually enjoy these little snippets--you know, those of you with half decent taste--here's a video that captures fall in New England just perfectly.

I grew up in New England, and even now the smell of fallen leaves (which I don't get to smell much anymore) INSTANTLY makes me think I'm 4 years old and jumping into a pile of 'em. Nice viedo!

I'm not in New England but that reminds me of fall days in western MD. :) Good times.

Love it!

We would always rake a big pile of leaves underneath the swing set and jump off the swings into them. Good times.

Oh my goodness, James is so adorable.
I remember having to rake a HUGE (well it seemed huge at the time) yard in Wisconsin every fall; the only thing that made it worthwhile was getting to play in the leaves afterward. :-)
Now, I live in stupid Arizona and the only thing to jump in around here are piles of dirt...not quite the same. :-)

Are you kidding me? That was AWESOME!
I've never commented before but I want to tell you the crazy story of my finding your blog. I was perusing running podcasts and loved the name "Banned on the Run". So I listened to the one you all did w/ Marathon Mama and then checked out your blog. I'm from Utah...yeah...and was astounded to see that you're a Mormon! I swear to the Lord above that every blog I find that I like lately is oddly enough authored by a Mormoness of some sort. I don't currently practice and I'm convinced that the Holy Ghost is poking me via the internet...damn it!
Anyway, I love your blog...hilaaaarios! I also share your love of Mormon swears and running. Your children are really stinking gorgeous.

SO funny! He just disappeared. :)

P.S. That "Erin" commenting is my sister. I, too, remember Wisconsin. It was fun for a while, but man all those trees got old.

Fe said...

That is SO AWESOME! I love the way he simply disappears into the pile of leaves!

Michelle said...

Amy, that is one awesome pile of leaves! Also, can I just say...that your voice for some reason is higher pitched than I imagine while reading your posts. I will have to adjust your "voice" now!

Sarah said...

As long as you love all videos of my kid...I love all the videos of yours. PS: I think you really need to write a post about our old roommates drunken nacho Irving incident.

OMGoodness!!! That looked like so much fun.... Can I come over and join in????? PLEASE!!!

He clearly needs to put in some speedwork. His turnover is pitifully slow...

Maraiya said...

Fabulous! This is something neither myself nor my children have ever experienced. Perhaps I should pencil in a trip to Maine in the fall....

Michemily said...

Wow, I definitely was not expecting him to suddenly disappear in a pile of leaves. He went down deep!

Hurricanehol said...

Oh man I love that! We just moved to AZ from MA and I have to say, that made me miss home! We used to have *huge* piles between my neighbors and my house. My kids and I miss that, my husband (the one who rakes or blew the leaves) not so much ;-)

What was great is that the city was sometimes slow at picking them up so you would have them all winter long..so come spring you would have a snow gross pile of mush in front of your house....ahh...memories :-)

Grandma said...

Bahston Beans said...

I swear this is making me feel better!

pam said...

that really is amazing. I don't think I've ever see a pile of leaves swallow a kid like that. It made me smile!

Adorable. Just adorable.

YAY for the gigantic leaf pile!
