Just a-swingin'

I got invited with a lot of other neighbors 
to a fairly impromptu garden party on
This child decided it was time to be my friend 
at long last and began posing as she has seen
other girls do. 
I took lots of pictures while I had the chance! 
I heard that she cried back at home because
she didn't mean to wear this dress!!!

I had just come across this picture of
my oldest brother on his swing. 
He will be sixty soon. 
He has finally become a grandparent
and is loving it! 

This was one view I captured at the garden party...

and another...

it was so gorgeous as the sun went down. 

Simple pleasures are the best! 
Swinging...sunsets, flowers, trickling water, 
photography and hospitable neighbors.

Gorgeous photos Phyllis! You'll have all the little kids in the neighborhood lined up for photos with you:>) Tell her I think her dress is just right!

see you there! said...

I like the dress but understand wanting to be in your BEST dress if you are going to be photographed.

Sounds like a lovely day.
