As it turns out, the cheap childhood games we played are the very same ones that I relish and long for my children to enjoy.
Three legged races.
And Red Light, Green Light and Mother May I, but I don't have pictures of those... so keep an eye on Jenny's blog, too, because I think she will eventually have them up.
We also entertained ourselves with things like...
Swinging and climbing on the rope swings. There has been a rope swing on this tree for the better part of the last 22 years. Poor tree.
What else? Oh yeah, races.
Making necklaces, bracelets and headresses out of clover flowers. Yes, even for the boys.
I guess some occasional parent interaction is okay. But just to spin you around.
And in general, just getting really dirty... and REALLY sweaty.
(if that one of Miles doesn't make you guffaw, you're dead to me.)
But, I guess that sometimes, kids just get tired of entertaining themselves. They just can't bring themselves to do any more swinging or sliding...
and that's when Mom offers you a popsicle.
and you attempt to eat it through a butterfly net.
Kids are weird, man!
I LOVE those 3-legged race pics. SO sweet!
GREAT pictures. I really love the last four.
Your kids are seriously yummy!
Those are great pics- but I don't expect anything else from you. That one of Miles KILLS me! What a punk!
Ok, it just has to be said; your kids are some of the cutest kids I have ever seen! (Don't tell anyone else I said that.) :) Seriously, you could retire on their good looks.
Keep the pictures coming. We love em'.
How did you and Matt produce such good looking kids? I love the three legged race pictures.
I love it, I love it, I love it. BTW, We need to swap pics because you got pics of a lot of things I didn't and perhaps vice versa.
That last picture totally made me laugh out loud. I woke up my husband up with a hearty HA!! Love these.
I always look forward to your blog pictures. They are amazing. Your children are beautiful! Care to share some photography tips with your readers? Beginning with a nice easy, reasonably priced camera to work with. Right now I have a Canon PowerShot SD900 Digital Elph. It's ok, but it seems to me I would like a faster shutter speed for the kids pics. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
loely shots of timeless ummer fun- I dig a 3 legged race
I love it! Sorry I missed you guys, no one told me when the open house was! That pic with the cider block scares me!! Great Pics!!
