Weekly Winners: A Day at the Park


Enjoyment

Peeking

Climbing

Climbers
Simplicity
Bubbles

Flying
If you read yesterday's post you know about my inability to follow (web)doctor's orders and keep off my leg. All these pictures were taken while I was doing my best to avoid weight bearing activities, elevate and ice my foot while enjoying the pain deadening effects of Motrin. It was a glorious day. Any ill effects of my decision to enjoy the park were well worth it.

A special thanks to my husband who delayed his grocery shopping so he could go to the park with us. His assistance was necessary because in addition to walking with a severe limp, I have a cold that has practically taken my voice away. As Belle put it, "Mommy, why are the batteries for your voice dying?"

Needless to say a hobbled mommy who doesn't have the ability to raise her voice has limited abilities at a very crowded downtown park.

Weekly Winners is the brain child of Lotus at Sarcastic Mom. Visit her to see more participants.

I love the black & white shot... Stunning. All of them are fabulous, and it looks like you all had a great time.

Hope your leg is feeling better!

Those are all great! I think "Simplicity" is my favorite though. Thanks for sharing your photos with us!!!

Love the climbing tree pictures. Just perfect!

Jerinda said...

I can't pick a fav because they were all great!

MommyTime said...

They're all lovely, but I like "Climbers" and "Simplicity" the best.

As for your voice, perhaps you should be buying those batteries at Costco? I think big multi-packs are really the only way to go for such essential ones. And if you know what size I need for the "keep my energy up to preschooler standards," please let me know. I'm pretty sure that one is running low...

Hope your leg is starting to feel a bit better!

Loved the photos despite your leg. Glad you had a chance to get out though :) Loved them all!

Darlin'.... lying on the beach, sipping from a perfectly iced margarita does NOT require legs. :) l

But I'm glad you rested it a bit so that you can at least walk to the beach on your own power. Because as romantic as the vision of Jeff carrying you there might be, it probably is not so very pleasant. ;)

Lisa said...
