We live in the city. We don't have a yard or leaves to rake, and our potted plants don't require "man-work." Every so often, we call up our friends, Phil and Kami, who live in the suburbs and ask if we can do yard work. Seriously. This year, the Mark and Phil had an incredible amount of leaves to rake, which I saw as a golden opportunity for a photo shoot. And I would be lying if I didn't think about that when I dressed Behr this day.
Side note: Has it become ridiculously apparent that I force my child into photo shoots and continue taking pictures as he wails at me in protest? Yes? But this is a mother's right, no? Okay, now that we got that out in the open, moving on...
Not only did I take advantage of Behr's first leaf pile, I also made sure we got a family photo.
First attempt was a lighting failure. Last attempt, also failure, in spire of my greatest efforts to make Behr smile. Do you see the stink eye he is giving me? He even refused to play once we were safely inside the house. Dad benefited from high quality time with Behr while he got over being mad at me.
At least my boys got to ride the "tractor."
