A Beautiful Sunday

Yesterday was such a beautiful day here in Norfolk  that when I mentioned I was going out to take some photos my grand kids got all excited asking if we were going to go park hunting. Although I had planned to go down to the ocean front I couldn't bring myself to squash their joy. Especially since their enthusiasm had convinced their mom to join us. So off we headed to Northside Park.
After playing on the slides and jungle gyms we headed over to the wooden ship where the kids did a bit of climbing and even though Sissy is very afraid of heights we convinced her to not only climb but to jump off the highest wooden post.

Looking back on the plans I had for the day it would be easy to grumble about not getting a chance to take some beautiful sea scape photographs. However, the sea will still be there tomorrow or ten years from now, but children grow so fast that moments like these will soon be lost. 
That was my Sunday, How was yours?

This was a wellspent day, Nita, though you already know it. I like the first photo of Sissy walking on the posts and the final shoe-level shot. Have a good week.

The jumping shots and the very last shot are my favorites.
