We had a playdate with our photography friends in one of our favorite places. There is a small patch of trees adjacent to an elementary school in McKinney whose leaves have usually turned and started to fall this time of year. Each November our playgroup meets here for an afternoon of pictures while the kids play in the leaves and on the playground. This year the leaves weren't as thick as they've been in the past, but we made it work. What was fun for Sam and Evie this year was climbing in the trees, standing on tree stumps, and dragging branches into a big "nature collection" as Sam described it. Here they are, working hard in the nature, playing in the pretty afternoon light.
