You're Gonna Miss This Moment - Backyard Fun

Just the other day it was really sunny out and everyone was playing something in the backyard. They were all having so much fun. They were having:


Bubble Fun!




Baseball Fun!




Jumprope Fun!




And the thing-around-your-ankle Fun!



Someday I will miss the innocence of backyard fun, where the kids are carefree and love to run around outside. Someday they will be way too cool for that ankle game or their foot will be too big to fit into it. I don't think bubbles get old though. I still like to mess around with them. 

What moment(s) will you miss? Stop by Pam's blog to join in on the fun.

Carol,
I love carefree days outside. My baby is 16 and the jump rope has given way to the tampoline, but it is so great to see him jumping without a care in the world. He says it is great stress relief.

Have a Blessed outside kind of day,
Dawn

I had an "older style" of that ankle thing when I was a kid. It was called a "Lemon Twist" back then. It actually looked like a lemon on the end, too.

Happy Monday!
