The boys begged to go outside on the front lawn this afternoon. They wanted to rake the leaves. And they did just that for a little while but, mostly, they played. I snapped a handful of shots with my little Nikon P6000 … because sometimes I need a little break from the big fiddly camera and fancy lens. Sometimes, I just want to be able to put the camera in my pocket, watch my children play and jump in the leaves with them. Unfortunately, our fun was cut short. My 3-year-old fell on the sidewalk as he was taking a running start towards the pile of leaves. The hubby had just come home and dinner was cooked and waiting. No matter. We can play in the leaves again tomorrow.
