A Day in the Deep South

If you asked me to describe a kid’s ideal day in the south, it would look something like this:

A refreshing dip in the kiddie pool under the shady fig tree.

Followed by a turn around the backyard with the hose.

A watermelon snack.

No inhibitions.

Taking the riding lawnmower out for a spin with Dad.

Catching fireflies with Uncle Chris.

I’m so happy that our children got to experience a day of simple pleasures like this.  It reminds us that we don’t need to be plugged into television, video games or computers to have a good time.

We ended our family day in Alabama gathered around the glowing homemade lanterns we created.  I think they turned out beautifully.  The boys were so proud.  We left the tall one behind for Granny and Grandpa to enjoy.  The boys insisted on taking their smaller lanterns home.  I think they make a lovely addition to the back porch and a nice reminder of our fun in the deep south.
