Saturday in the Park

I wish every day was the 4th of July…

We had the boys last night, and once again, it was two geezers getting the toddler beat-down. And a fantastic time was had by all.

Seems it was Grandparents Take Grandchildren to the Park Night at Brookside East. And we didn’t even go till around 7:45 p.m. We saw two other sets of grandparents playing…possibly doing the “let’s wear them out before bedtime” game. Heh.

It’s not that I want to bomb my space with pictures of my grandchildren (all right, that’s a big fat lie), but what is more delightful and simple and beautiful than children laughing and playing? It’s something I wish I could watch all the time, every day. Behold:

Justin, all big and bad on the merry-go-round


Remember going crazy on these things?


They loved flying "way up high."

There is no sweeter sound on earth than toddlers laughing uncontrollably.


And that’s how I spent my Saturday night. Bring on the Tylenol, and let’s do it all over again.

It was fun, and yep, we went home to the wall and watched the Cavs win! This one won’t be as easy… Read more »

These pictures are fantastic. It shows me why I want to borrow my soon-to-be nephew for a weekend or two.
