Everyone must have done it as a child: make a pile of leaves and jump in them. Having little kids around just gives you an excuse to do it as an adult! How about the feeling of just lying on the ground, on your back? The Mom’s little great-nephews (her sister became a grandmother at 40) thought that was really something, an adult getting right down to their level–no, below their level! Who could resist jumping on her? (Who could resist being jumped on by two cuddly toddlers?)
The two pictures are from last year.
