A little day at the park

The Swing
By Robert Louis Stevenson

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
Rivers and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside—

Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown—
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!

The giddy anticipation

The wind on your face and in your hair on a sunny spring day


Not the easiest way to take photos, whilst swinging, but at least he was "captured" in one place. Photography of a two year old boy is almost impossible unless he is asleep. Always on the go, always busy, always moving.....


  1. Those pictures are priceless!

  2. I LOVE Robert Louis Stevenson! And your grandson is beautiful :)

  3. What a lovely time you had, welcome back
