Wordless Wednesay & Photo Challenges: Excitement & Bloopers

All things were made by him; and without him
was not any thing made that was made.
John 1:3



The Paper Mama photo challenge theme this week is EXCITEMENT.  Fun!  I have scores of excited baby pictures, but decided to submit this:

This picture was taken last month at the playground at Siesta Key Beach.  This is where Camdyn's end-of-the-year class party was held.  It was HOT, but the kids had a blast playing with each other outside the confines of the classroom.  This picture makes me want to put a harness around the hands of time, and pull my body weight against it.  The days where blue twisty slides evoke excitement are numbered.  The days when simple pleasures are found in the small wonders of life, are numbered.  Our babies will go to Kindergarten next year, they will be exposed to a slice of the "real world."  They are growing up. 

But, for now, I will appreciate every second of their simple pleasures, and hope to capture the excitement in their eyes as they enjoy their final year as pre-schoolers.

Now, head on over to the Paper Mama and link up a picture of Excitement! 

The theme this week at the Trendy Treehouse is Bloopers & Outtakes.  Wow.  Do I have a lot of those, especially because I suffer from an affliction that makes deleting photos almost impossible.  I think it's a version of photo hoarding...I wonder if they have a TLC show about that? 

Anyway, I give you this picture, of me, Chloe Belle, and Gramma.  We just wanted one adequate photo, and of course, little miss in the baby Bjorn was not cooperating, so I decided to not cooperate with her.  Man, if you can't beat them then join them. 


Please visit The Trendy Treehouse to see some seriously hilarious photos and perhaps submit your own photo!

Love your blooper pic. It must be a universal thing to mock your kids when they won't cooperate.

I'm DYING at your blooper! That's hysterical...I totally laughed out loud! :-) I didn't know about Trendy Treehouses' theme; I might have a perfect one for that! Thanks for the heads-up. :-)

Oh that is so funny! I delete all my photos I don't like maybe I should start keeping them.

Great pictures, Carol! I love the picture of Chloe and the fish. And the slide picture IS exciting! It is the simple things that excite our little ones now, and you're right...that may all be gone before we know it. And of course the blooper pic is hilarious.

Happy WW! Thanks for linking up!

I love the static hair-do effect on those slides! Great example of that child-like excitement over something which requires neither electricity (well, except fot the static kind) nor batteries. Plain old fun-pure and simple. I love your outtake, too. Gramma looks as if she's trying to hold it all together. I commented on the Busch Garden post, too. Good night! -E
Oh, and thank you for all of your comments on my blog. I love hearing from you.

I remember that last picture on a post you wrote about "This is what Monday's feel like!" My memory could be totally wrong, but I think that's where I remember it from! It just made me laugh again!

Jennifer said...

You are such a kid at heart...I love it! It is so funny how kids can be outside playing in 95 degree weather and they aren't really phased by it. Cam's face it priceless in that pic. And the one of you and your mom and the baby is even better..LOL!
