Shoot Out: Childhood Memories

Thanks, everyone, for indulging me and allowing me to choose this theme. And Thank You for being patient with my post. It's so hard for me to get to during the week.

For me, childhood was strictly about playing. I work hard so my children will remember fun, good moments.

I'd like to share with you a few of our favorite moments in local "hot spots" for my kids.

Here, my oldest is on the local t-ball team. I think every child who's 4 or 5 years old plays in the summer in our community. His younger brother looks on, anxious for when he's old enough to play.




This was taken in Detroit at "The Ren Center" where there is a really cool water feature.


Swimming in the pool


And swimming in the ocean (North Carolina - family vacation).



And here are some "every day play"



And quality time with "brother".

Your boys are adorable. I love the shot of the boy on the swing from the back. Very cute.

What is it about kids and water? It can be cold and windy, and kids will go swimming. The water can be freezing, and kids will go swimming.

I did it as a kid! Now, forget it!

LOL!

I LOVED this theme! Great pick!

Sorry if it's too late for me to post a comment here. My internet connection was so slow and from to time the connection cut off. Anyways, thanks for the photo shoot assignment. At first I have no idea about it and you were away. But our group team is always there. I really love our group. I enjoy your own representation of classic childhood of your children. And I admired you for being a great mother who always there for them, for their own happiness and you give them freedom of being kids.

Thanks again for the photo assignment.
