Bubbles and Wheelbarrows


Given the opportunity, kids still enjoy simple, outdoor activities.
At least our grandchildren do!

I must admit I enjoyed watching the bubbles of all sizes float in the breeze -
as well as watching Isaac and Abby chasing them.


Creating their own fun isn't a lost art, and it doesn't take much to make them smile.


Might be a little scary with your brother driving . . . but fun nevertheless!


I'm so thankful for all four of our grandchildren who brighten our days
and give us a fresh look at the world around us!

Thank God for kids; there's magic in a smile . . .

Our youngest grandchild is 13 so we don't have little ones around anymore. We are patiently waiting for the great grand-children to show up. We have one grandchild married so some day it will happen.
Can't wait!

Looks like a lot of fun! What a great shot of that bubble! You've got fun memory shots of the grands! Enjoy - we get to see ours so seldom.

I love being in Texas but I sure miss my grandson! These pictures are absolutely delightful.

Hi Glenda, Yes--it is wonderful seeing children play with the simple things in life (and not with their cellphones, video games, etc.)...

God Bless.
Hugs,
Betsy

Love the pictures...I can almost hear those two giggling and having a good time! :) And the bubble picture is AMAZING!! Who was it who said, "If I'd known how much fun grandchildren would be, I would've had them first!" :)

Yes, it's wonderful when you see your grandchildren enjoying the simple joys like bubbles and wheelbarrows.
That shot of the single bubble was spectacular!
The picture of Abby with the bubbles would make a wonderful birthday card.
Grandchildren are indeed the icing on the cake. :)

It's so wonderful to see kids playing outside. So much of childood play seems to be gone these days. Let them be children and let us take the time to watch and enjoy them as you do!

What a wonderful photo of that bubble, Glenda! Grandkids are wonderful, aren't they? We spent some time with one of ours yesterday, he walked between us while hanging onto one of each of our fingers. LOL....so cute!

It is definitely fun to see things through their eyes. The little twins use anything in their hands as dolls - sticks, pieces of toast, and today their own fingers, since they didn't have anything else. So cute. They could survive without all the "stuff" they've been blessed with by so many people.

I love the picture of the bubble. You really caught a magical moment there too. Like you, I love my grand children. It sure looks like they had a great time there with the wheelbarrow! Sometimes the simplest of things can bring more happiness than expensive toys! I hope your Sunday is a wonderful one at your house!
