Making Memories

My daughter lives in the suburbs and has a group of friends that have become like family. They have a potluck every Sunday called Family Dinner where they choose a theme for the week, yet sometimes have a whatever week with no theme. They switch houses weekly. The common denominator for them is children; they all met in a play group.

 

All the children play wonderfully together with no fighting or tattling, just lots of loosely structured little groups having fun. One grouping is a constant though.  My grandson and his little friend are always together. If they join a group it is because both want to, otherwise it is always the two of them.

 

Seeing these two brings back memories of almost sixty years. We played the same way in our neighbourhood and my younger brother and the girl next door, born one day earlier than him, were so much like the two pictured above. Memories certainly are treasures.

 

Lucy the duck Webcam shows that her ducklings are hatching and she will leave her nest and get a police escort to the pond across the street. It usuually happens in the middle of the night here so it may be daytime where you are. I will miss it.

Yup!

Great montage, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Thank you.
what a magnificent collection of treasures Mary... friends for a lifetime i am sure....petersmile

our mother duck still comes to the feeder ten times a day... the male is no longer around so she must be close to having her eggs hatch... if not alreadysmile
Mary MacADNski: Usually when they are near hatching they don't come much at all. The males all choose a place to hang out tofether.
A wonderful montage - and celebration of what "family" really is!

This is nice, childhood is precious
Mary MacADNski: I love watching them up close like this. My Seattle family are moving back to Canada. Yeah! They're teenagers now though...
Wonderful memories and it must be good to watch grandchildren doing similar things.
Mary MacADNski: It doesn't happen often. My vacations are few and far apart.
A lovely montage, Mary...Keepers for sure.
Mary MacADNski: They are so sweet together.
A very well produced presentation Mary and a nice family story to go with it. Our Granddaughter Lauren was 10 on Saturday and her best friend is a lad the same age from her class at school, she has girl friends but she and Zac both seem to have the same interests.
Mary MacADNski: That is it exactly. Gender is no matter with children and their interest and personalities.

Such friendships will endure a lifetime I hope; so many adventures ahead that we can't even imagine.

I'm so pleased that the ducklings have made it across the highway although I was a bit concerned about one of them. I can't imagine our UK police doing such things.
Mary MacADNski: Oh my. I am glad you got to see it. This has been happening for 8 years. It is usually at night and taxi drivers were the first escorts. They hang out in that parking lot and got to do it until the police started doing the escort.
A fine collection Mary. It reminds me of the song "Innocent Child" by Big Audio Dynamite.
Mary MacADNski: Ya hooked me - ya hooked me.
