It's good to be a kid again







We had a hard time keeping the really tall kid in the striped shirt out of the sandpit.



After a while, we just stopped trying. After all, it was a winter afternoon, the sun was shining, and we didn't have a care in the world.



Visit Steve. That big kid can shoot a cactus.

  4. I could spend hours with those filings. The magnolia in full bloom looks extra beautiful with the back lighting.

  7. It's so nice to visit blogs from places that already have flowers blooming. : ) Plus, this post brought back wonderful memories of the Mud Bakery that I used to run with my childhood friend Stacey. (Everything was "chocolate", hee)

  9. When I became a man I put away childish things. That was my first mistake....you took your lucky break and broke it in two!

  10. You mean those poor kids weren't given anything digital to play with? What is this world coming to?!

  11. The character in the striped shirt is Susan. Or when she's at the playground, we call her Susie.

  12. I agree with Susan, never to old to be a kid, even though to have a kid spirit and soul.

    Love the Steve photos. The cactus's picture is stunning!

  14. I recognize the big kid. The striped boatneck tee and nautical whites are a give away. She is what I call a young soul

  15. Do we have to stop kids from playing in the sand or filings, just because they're big? Good for Susie, not giving up.

  17. The pics really create a great sense of the kids at work. Intently! And the flower shot at the end are . . . how many of said "gorgeous"? But it is.

  19. The magnetic sand is pretty tempting. You really can't blame her.
