the best of childhood...







if you look closely you'll see that her shirt says "run in the grass. play in the sun". that pretty much sums up our summer days. there's something particularly magical about watching a child be a child. the curiosity, laughter and joy is contagious. as is the silliness. to me these pictures represent the best of this age. clothes can be changed. water can be wasted. hair can be washed. but these smiles cannot be missed.

you're right. so many times i have to remind myself to allow her to be spontaneous and just have fun...i should do it a little myself too!

HA! I love these so much! It captures the freedom of childhood. I miss jumping in the sprinkler.
