We don’t know what it’s like where you live, but here at the farm, leaves are falling like crazy.  Francesca and I were outside watching them float down to the ground when I decided to help with the leaf blowing.  Check this out and let me know if you like playing in piles of leaves …

Uncle Carlos came to visit yesterday.  It was a rainy day and we really wanted to get out of the house for a while.  He said that he would take us for a spin around the farm in the Kawasaki, one of our favorite things to do.  Come along for the ride!
