A Leaf Pile Treasure Hunt

Grae and I were at home today without a vehicle, stroller, Ergo, umbrella, or bus pass (Brad had the vehicle and accidentally took everything else along with him – oopsies!), so we decided to use the the dreary rainy day to get some yard work done {quite possibly in pajamas ☺}.  

Leaf Pile Treasure HuntI was raking leaves like a mad woman when I noticed that Grae had invented her own little game in the pile of leaves she was playing in.  She played round after round as I sat back quietly chuckling to myself as I watched.  First, she’d toss her little rake into the pile somewhere, then burry it with leaves and call out “Where’s Grae Grae’s rake?  Hmmm… I don’t know!” while holding her hands out up to the sky wandering through the pile…

And when there wasn’t a leaf pile treasure hunt happening, there was a whole lot of this…

Such a little outdoor lovin’ monkey!
