What’s Fun For You…..

…….is not always fun for someone else.

Last weekend my niece Crystal and her son, Cameron, came over to swim with Arai. While trying to coax Cameron to get in his mother decided to have some fun.

However Cameron did not see anything fun about this.

Mere seconds after this photo was snapped little Cameron screamed so loud…he saw nothing funny.

An Artist in the Making

I bought some paints for little Arai to explore his creative side.  He totally enjoyed himself. He said that he is an “Artist!”  Of course mom-mom had to agree.

Tonight was a good night.

WP Photo Challenge: Change

I have a few ideas of things that I will hopefully post for this weeks WP “Change” Challenge.

The first post is being pregnant to becoming a mother.  A womans body and mind goes thru so many major changes to bring new life into this world.

 

My niece Chanel and her son Georgie.  Little Georgie is about 7 days old in this picture.

Make sure you check out the other Changes that are going on out there in the world.

Free to be

This little girl did not care that I was watching the sunrise and taking pictures.  She just wanted to run and play in the ocean.

As an adult most of us aren’t going to lose our adult mindset and run free when there is a camera in the very near vicinity.   I know I am not.  That is one of the things that I miss about being a kid.

A child does not have all of those self-imposed constraints on them.   Their mind is free to do what they want without worry about what others may say.

This little girl truly enjoyed the sunrise.

Free to be!

Free to be!

An Opportunity for Some Snail Mail

My Uncle Richie is a retired Navy man who traveled the world over his 30 year career.  When I was a child he would send me a postcard from every county/state that he visited.  I still have these postcards.

When I would get his postcards they made me happy for two reasons, first because I know he thought about me and second it was always a beautiful note from one of my favorite Uncles.

I recently came across 2 postcard projects that I would like to share with you.

The first one I learned about was from Gale over at Living Life Day by Day.  In short, if your are tired of getting just bills in the mail and would like a pleasant surprise and some positive thoughts check out Living Life Day by Day and get a piece of happiness just when you could really use it.

You can sign up for it through her blog, it is really easy.

I am now patiently awaiting my first postcard from Gale.

The second postcard project I found while reading the comments on Gale’s blog (it is good to be nosey sometimes!).  Thomas over at Thomas’ Travels is a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mozambique.  He is teaching children English and about the world.

I have signed up for this postcard project and now the hard part, what am I going to send to the children of Mozambique?

Every post MUST contain a picture.

The Traveler

The Traveler – Taken at the Philadelphia Flower Show. This fits todays post as it is about travelers. Receiving a postcard allows the reader to use their imagination and take themselves to another place.
