Weekend Park Pics

A heckuva lot went on with the kids last weekend, and I am certainly not gonna try to cover it all. Here are some pics of the shenanigans.

We spent quite a bit of time at the playground, which has lots of equipment. While the kids made some use of it, there were times when they simply chose to hang around. This is actually two photos composited into one.
In past year, Danica required much boosting for these antics, but she didn't need me
this year. Sniff. But JJ still needed grampa's hands every now and then ...
... but not on this tree (in the other park).
They had a lot of fun on the tire. Buppa was heavily called upon for this activity. This is a blending of two photos. One was better of him and the other of her.
At the entrance to the other park (Riverside), JJ strike a pose.

She decided to pose too.
This is soooo Danica. She saw this father and son landing a small fish, and she had to be right there, inserting herself without any hesitation..
Looking for fish?
Probably reaching for the grass. I just love this photo.
I love this one too: JJ fishing amongst the grasses. They had been so enthralled with seeing the boy fishing earlier that they wanted to try. Sue, ever the problem solver, attached trailing weeds to sticks and let them try their darnedest, sans hooks.
No kids, but I like this one. As we sat waiting, we glimpsed the squirrel feasting from the garbage bin. I included the bench for Bench Mondays on Flickr.
Th th th that's all folks.

I like the 2 in 1 photos, wonder how you do that! This looks like a lovely place to spend a few hours on a sunny weekend.

In this series, the first blended photo and the pose together are the winners for me, but all show he joy of children playing. It is often amazing how simple things like the makeshift fishing poles can hold their attention...who needs toys and gadgets when there is the great outdoors?
