Wordless Wednesday...The Joys of Childhood

 

While the focus at our home on Sunday was mini-me’s “Tea Party”, her brothers, Luke and Jake, were not left out!

When my neighbor found out that they would be over, he brought out the scooters.

Luke and Jake could not run out of the house fast enough...even leaving their cell phones behind!

When I look back at that freedom of childhood, which is in a way infinite, and at all the joy and the intense happiness, now lost, I sometimes think that childhood is where the real meaning of life is located, and that we, adults, are its servants - that that's our purpose. Karl Ove Knausgard

Hi Kathy Streib - What a nice gesture to bring out those scooters.  How fun is that. I can see the smile. These types of memories don't go away.

Kathy,

So glad to hear the boys had fun to. Leaving cellphones behind is a big thing these days.

Nina Hollander they had so much fun, especially since they had to spend the day hanging out at a tea party. 

Sham Reddy CRS you're not kidding. And we're lucky to have fond memories to look back on. 

Donald Urschalitz wish I could be around to see it.

Wayne Martin well said!  I get so much joy seeing how happy young children are. 

Brian England one of them is actually an igloo cooler!  You could take it with you on the golf course.

Sharon Lee indeed it was. He gets a kick out of it as well. 

It makes me wish that all of the children in the world could have that kind of childhood Sheila Anderson 

Kat Palmiotti I couldn't agree more. Larry and I love to see kids playing outside.

Grant Schneider the boys love them and my mini-me can't wait to get a little older so she can try them. 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD since their grandfather (my brother) also rides motorcycles, they feel like they're doing what he does.

Michael Jacobs LOL they had no choice but they hung out with their uncles who were outside. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I'm having so much fun with GIFs.  Those two would have stayed outside all afternoon with those scooters but the batteries eventually died.

Will Hamm you know what...I remember my brother's friend had one and they were always outside riding them. 

Lottie Kendall I still love riding a bike. Larry and I used to take ours to a park north of Delray Beach. You could ride without worrying about getting hit by a car.

You're right Roy Kelley It seemed to be a lot safer!

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 They'd be fun if we could get them in an adult size!!!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I think that's what's fun for all of us...helping make fun memories with our children.

George Souto I agree. All I had was my bike and roller skates!!!

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty it would be nice if we could bottle it up and keep that feeling forever. 

Krystin Mitchell, CPA CFE you have to wonder why everyone is in such a hurry to leave it.
