As a kid every fall I would help my dad rake the leaves in our yard. We'd put them into giant piles around the yard then bring a tarp to each pile to put them on and haul them away to the fire pit. Burning the leaves was my favorite part (I'm a weird pyro) but a close second was jumping in the piles!
Its kind of sad that my boys have never experienced this autumn tradition. So I was really excited when we visited a pumpkin patch that had a huge pile of straw for kids to jump around in. What a good idea?!!
