Here we are at the end of the month, meaning it is time for the ‘Lilhoohaa photo challenge post. This month’s subject is FUN!
1. Last weekend my son went surfing. As he paddled out, I saw that three children were watching him intently, as if they had never seen a surfer before. Once he started to turn, they began to get even more excited. They waited with baited breath until he finally caught a wave. As he stood up and began to ride, the children jumped up and down while screaming, “He got it he got it he got it!” I was grinning ear to ear at their joy while my son remained oblivious to the fun he provided them.
2. I have been hunting for a can of googly eyes for weeks and finally found one in Corolla. After my purchase, my middle son began to pull them out of my hands. I resisted, until he said, “Mom… TRUST ME.” I reluctantly handed him the tin. He then held on to one side while he placed the other side in my right hand. He looked in my eyes and said with much seriousness, “Mom… with great power comes great responsibility.” And then he released the tin. It took me a while before I found just the right spot to place my precious first pair of googly eyes. One they were attached, I went to my son for approval. Quietly, I said, “Did I choose the right spot?” He glanced at the alligator and then back at me, replying, “You did well, my child. You did very, very well.” Googly eyes? FUN.
3. Henna tattoos. What could be more fun!
4. …… and drink umbrellas.
5. And finally, there is nothing more fun than attempting to get a good giant duck kissing picture. And FAILING!
