An autumn day at the park

Our granddaughters spent a day with us last week and despite the wind and cold temperature, we went to the nearby park.

 

Everyone was bundled in winter jackets, hats and mitts. However the ride to the park was pleasant as we pulled the girls in the wagon and joined in the conversation. 

 

They enjoy each other's company, and with few exceptions, get along well.

The crunch of the leaves under foot makes for an interesting walk around the park now, 

 

as many of the trees have given up the majority of their colour. The same spaces, 

 

a mere four weeks ago, looked different against the green background.

 

Now, the equipment is too cold for little bodies.

 

 The girls ran around for a short time, had their snack and we headed home. 

 

It was good to get some fresh air even if it was a cold day. Hot cocoa provided a warm welcome at home. These are precious days!

  2. I seem to remember that kicking up the leaves was a very attractive pastime when I was that age - though it was rather a long time ago!
