The Art of Leaf Jumping

You know you're old when your kids ask you to jump in the leaf pile with them and you say, "No way!"  I remember loving to jump in the fall leaves as a kid.  Even in New York City before the 1978 pooper scooper law, I used to beg my mom to let me run through the leaves.  Nowadays, I whole-heartedly join  other types kid fun, but somewhere along the way, I grew out of leaf jumping.  But these kids have taken leaf jumping to new heights of joy.

Who would ever think that getting a faceful of leaves thrown at you could be so much fun?

Or a talking leaf pile?  I should clarify, a crazy talking leaf pile.

Let's not forget Dova's rendition.

But my favorite photo is this gravity-defying explosion of leaves and kids.

Autumn is good. Too bad it's snowing outside right now here in New England!

I am impressed that they leaf jump shoeless!
