When we lived in New Jersey, Fall was one of my favorite seasons. We had a large backyard with two chestnut trees. The kids used to collect the fallen chestnuts, break them open and leave them in a pile for the squirrels to find.
With our trees and our neighbors trees we had lots of beautiful colored leaves. I loved raking the leaves in a great big pile and having the kids jump in them. (Nicole was in 3rd grade, Andrew and Lauren were in 1st grade and Heather was 2 years old). I admit that I would jump in them too. Good memories!
