First, we played. Hard. He had a lot of energy he needed to get worked out. We stayed a long time and he was joined on the playground by a sweet little girl, who surprised us all by giving him a great big kiss when we parted ways. Haha!
Then we found a quiet spot under some trees to read through our stack of fall books. We laid out a blanket and watched the leaves dance and fall around us. We cuddled and read a ton of books. We looked for leaf men! Here are a few of our absolute favorites.
- The Little Yellow Leaf by Carin Berger
- Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert
- Scary, Scary Halloween by Eve Bunting
- The Night Before Halloween by Natasha Wing
R really enjoyed our time together this afternoon. He already wants to do this again, and I can easily see this being a tradition. He told me that I was the best mommy ever, so it was a definite winner!
What are your favorite books to read during the autumn?
