(AP) MOUNT VERNON, Wash. - While playing in leaves, a 4-year-old Washington boy found a maple leaf almost as big as he is.

Tommy Lindsey of Mount Vernon was walking with his family Sunday when he picked up the leaf that is more than 2 feet from stem to tip and more than 21 inches wide.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1ixE062) it’s a little wider but shorter than the record maple leaf listed in Guinness World Records.
