Wordless/Wordful Wednesday – The Games We Play

Imagination is a wonderful thing.  Princess Nagger was blessed with a very creative one.  School’s been out for one full week – and these are some of the things we’ve been doing to keep busy and have some fun:

Making a sand castle:

A Sand Turtle:

Travis seemed a bit jealous of me taking pictures of the sand turtle, so he had to get in the frame for a shot:

Wonder where the little bit of sand came from?  Since our most recent wind/rain storm blew the lid off Princess Nagger’s sand box and littered her sand with debris and leaves, hubby ‘borrowed’ the sand from it to fill in around the bricks that he fixed next to the Summer House:

She’ll be getting fresh sand for her sand box this weekend.  But she did notice a small pile next to the grill that hubby didn’t use – and since it had rained, it was wet…the perfect way to make a sand castle.  She filled up her little sand castle mold and moved the pile out to the middle of the brick patio – and had quite a bit of fun playing with that little bit of sand.

Along with pretending to be at the beach, she enjoyed some Giraffalaff Limbo:

Monopoly City:

And hours of Rope Swing Olympics:

11 weeks of Summer Break left – we’ll see how creative we can be until it’s time for school to start again. How’s your Summer Break going so far?

I love the last one where she’s swinging! You’ll have to set her up with some playdates and outings with friends. That will help and be tons of fun too.

Oh, I miss those days of summer vacation! Summer vacation at our house consists of driving The Young One to and from the library and friends houses, and loaning him the lawn mower so he can go around the neighborhood earning money (next summer we’ll get to let him use the car to drive to a “real” job…oh, joy).

22 TechnoBabe June 16, 2010 at 10:35 am

The last picture of rope swinging is such a truly great picture. Makes me want to try it.

23 VandyJ June 16, 2010 at 10:51 am

Looks like she is having a fabulous summer so far. Hope it continues, without making mom crazy.

24 The Urban Cowboy June 16, 2010 at 10:58 am

I wanna be able to take pictures like you. The rope swing photos are awesome! Looks like the two of you are having a blast this summer.

25 Angie June 16, 2010 at 11:04 am

Wow! I forgot how crazy busy summer days have to be with a little one. I’m just working too much and reading everything I can about photography…

26 Katie's Dailies June 16, 2010 at 8:05 am

The swing picture is the epitome of summer time!

27 Elaine June 16, 2010 at 11:27 am

What a perfect little ‘beach’ – ha! It is going to get interesting to keep them busy all Summer. We’ll be at the pool at our club A LOT that’s for sure!

Love the shots of her on the rope. Cool!

28 gayle June 16, 2010 at 11:31 am

Nothing so wonderful as a child’s imagination. You can see the happiness glowing from that Princess. You’ve done a good job Mommy.

LOVE that she can find so many interesting things to do on her own!

33 Anne June 16, 2010 at 2:58 pm

Wow, she is so creative. I am glad that she is having a good break. Our break has not started yet but I am dreading the arguments that are sure to come.

34 Faythe June 16, 2010 at 3:33 pm

I want to trade places w/Princess Nagger! I so miss the carefree days of summer! Do you think she’d mind trading into a over 50 body? rotfl!

How sweet is this? I so enjoyed watching her at play…and the dog family too!!! Sometimes I wish my daughter was a wee one again…but then, I wouldn’t be able to love my grandkids now either. A so very joyful post you shared.

Thanks for popping by yesterday, I’m trying to catch up with all my visitors this morning. The baby turtle release was a grand success…I’ll have photos of this event next week on my blog.
