Phriday Phling Phinale

It's not often I post twice on the same day, but I got to it rather late last night (or early this morning, depending on whether you're a night owl or early bird) and again this evening. Of course I had to make a lot of photos over the past 10 days or so and many of these captured memories of phun times with our granddaughters. Since it's also Phun Phriday you'll have to bear with me as I post a few more.

This first shot is of a colourful wind catcher near a playground, spinning its wheels in the breeze, as I was out for a walk with Hailey - she had hoped to play there but unfortunately the entrances were locked.

The next shot is of Hailey at the fish and turtle pond after she'd finished feeding them, and just before she got to go go-karting. Again !

The last shot is of her younger sister Lilly who turns 4 in a few weeks - obviously she's headed for a modelling career.

We certainly had a phun-philled 10 days, and tomorrow night we start another week with our other 2 daughters. We're seeing more of our family being 2,500 km/1,500 mi from home than when we lived much closer by. You don't suppose the Florida weather has anything to do with it, do you ? Nah, I thought so !

Awww, what precious gems your granddaughters are, I LOVE the photos you've posted of both of the girls. Your shots are stunning!

You mentioned to please bear with you while you posted a few more shots... I say keep them coming. I LOVE seeing your photos, I think that you know that already though. I aspire to be as good of a photographer as you are one day Rick and I'll get there if I watch what others are doing and eventually have the time to get out in the world and practice.

Have a wonderful weekend! And nah, the weather couldn't have a thing to do with seeing the family more, it's you and your wife they miss. ;-)

Rick said...

Thank you Magda - they are a true delight ! Hope your weekend is going well.

Thanks, Katherine - and I agree ;-) Have a great week (seeing as how your weekend is coming to a close).

Thanks, Darlene - although I may be a little biased, I have to agree about our granddaughters ! And maybe it's the combination of weather and hosts that's drawing everyone here ;-)

Thanks, Tammy - no argument from me ;-)

Ha ha, Ruth - it sure looks like it (I'll have to show her this blog in about 10 years). Thank you, and I hope your weekend is a good one too !

Rick said...

Thanks Soraia !

Thank you Farmchick - we loved having them with us - never a dull moment ;-)

Thanks, Leslie - on both counts !

Ok Dawn - I'll go along with that ;-) Yep, Lilly learned from her 'big' sister - we call her a little poser !

Ha ha - thanks, Monika - someone had asked for some more photos of them and 'twisted my arm' (I was happy to oblige).

Rick said...

LOL Joseph - at least I don't have to chase them in a car. yet. You'll have a job just like this in the future ! ;-)

I agree Susan - thanks; *unbiased look*

Marty - yes, life has wonderful moments and it's relationships that create them ! Merci for your visits and lovely comments and I send a few full moon bisous your way !

Ah yes - so photogenic it makes photo making very easy. Thank you Teca for stopping by - I hope your weekend is going well; some warm beijos for you !!
