Adorable fall photos of kids playing in leaves

I am a forty-something mom who writes about parenting, mid-life, and anything else that makes me laugh (or cry) while living those years between changing diapers and wearing them.

Fall for these cute leaf pictures

The days are shorter, the air feels a bit cooler — yes, fall is finally here! There’s just something about the changing of the seasons that inspires us to grab a bit of outdoor fun while we still can. What’s more fun than a few kids and a big pile of leaves? Some of our favorite moms shared their favorite pics with us. Maybe you’ll be inspired to rake a big pile and have a jump or two.

Smiles for miles

Fall for these cute leaf pictures

Roxanne Piskel, writer and editor

This picture was taken in October of 2009 by my friend, Alia Moore. My son and I are both autumn babies, and we love playing in the leaves. He wasn't a big fan of the camera at this point, but encouraging him to throw the leaves in the air really made him warm up and enjoy himself. I love the beautiful smile on his face in this particular picture from that day.
