My Town Friday Shoot Out: Relaxation

This week's theme of relaxations for the My Town Shoot Out was chosen by Lena.

My area of Michigan is very near St. Clair Lake. We have a lot of shoreway and waterfront area. There is a public park that is one of my favorite places to take my kids. We play mini golf there, have picnics, play in the splash zone, play on the play ground and take long nature walks. There is also a public beach there and a large public pool.

Here are some pictures of our times spent there.








Next week's shoot out; "interesting and amusing signs", chosen by Si.

Those fountain shots are so fun - we have one of those near downtown Kansas City and I've always wanted to go play in them :) I love the shot on the swingset, too.

There's something about kids and water that always brings a smile to the face. Love the swing shot, too. Lovely shoot out!

The child in your first photo looks utterly relaxed - not a care in the world - nothing to think about but the way the water tickles the sole of your foot. That's wonderful.

the photos of your children are excellent - I hope you are printing some and keeping an album for each child.... can give it to them on their wedding day or the birth of their first child.... you do good....

Beautiful children! They are, obviously, enjoying a very carefree childhood. Great stuff!
