52 Photos Project: Week 16


The prompt for this week's 52 Photos Project is "Childhood Games".  Here's my entry:


It's my family, circa 1987 or so.  Since my kids are grown, and I don't yet have any grandchildren ("yet" being the operative word), I had to dig into the basement archives for this one.  Love that lush head of hair on Mike.  It's a little, shall we say, more subtle now.  Not to mention more silvery.  (Although I guess I just mentioned it, didn't I?)  And the kids...their expressions are priceless.  Judging by the wet ground, I'm guessing it was a rain break during our wet Portland winters that prompted this activity.  Have to get outside while the getting is good.  Fun times.  I miss those two little boys, but I do love the men they've become.

That's a priceless shot! I believe there is no better time spent than that with your children. The rewards are immense. Blessings!

That is a great shot!

I haven't come up with anything for this prompt, so I think I'll give it a bye. (Well, I can think of one pic I'd like for it, but it's, um, SOMEWHERE, in an album or something.)
