photoblog image Hold On!

Hold On!

I got several shots of my darling with this same look on her face.  In her imaginary game, she would get into position inside the limbs of the old tree that once held a treehouse. She would yell, "Hold On," several times in a really growly voice then run like the wind down the hill yelling, "down the hill!" She talked to me and herself all through these precedures and I finally found out  the sawed tree trunk was a horse.

Don't you just love childrens' imagination!! I love this photo!
Mary MacADNski: She does have a great imagination. I love how she uses her voice with her imaginary world, talking to each thing in a voice not he own.
I figured out the tree trunk right off the bat Mary... it keeps us young trying to follow their explorations... you should try it with four of them living beside a lake... i am bushed after they go home... but what fun!!! ....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: We did this game every day. She ran for hours and I have the perfect yard for that.
A model to become
Mary MacADNski: Or an actress.

The joys of carefree childhood - where anything can be anything!
Mary MacADNski: We had so much fun. I went along on the trip.
they live in a world where sometimes let us in, but not always, and that world is much more complex than ours in many respects. great photo.
Mary MacADNski: Very complex world as you say. She was happy to let me into her world because I was having a good time and going along for the ride.

She is enjoying that as much as if her "horse" was real, Mary
Mary MacADNski: Absolutely! Over and over, the same game, laughing her head off when running down the hill and serious like this at the top, getting ready to take offf.
Destined to be a jockey, then smile
Mary MacADNski: An adventurer of some kind.

A natural poser Mary.

Of course its a horse, Mary...or even a dragon...
Mary MacADNski: I asked and it is a horse. Over and over, the same game, laughing her head off when running down the hill and serious like this at the top, getting ready to take off. Every day we would start our time outdoors with a different activity or chore but she soon would gravitate to this spot to go off on the adventure with the horse.

Angelic little girl The tree trunks behind her even look like wings.
Mary MacADNski: I got a lot of shots of her here as it was the only place she was momentarily still.

She looks like an angel - oh, so sweet that she could steal my heart! A lovely image!
Mary MacADNski: She has certainly stolen my heart. Next time she is here if we play this again I will take a video.

I can well imagine her game and her happiness to be a rider!
Mary MacADNski: When she would be running down the hill after this, she was so, so happy - huge giggles and smiles.

Such imagination. I often imagine that I'm very rich.. works fine until I get the credit card bill later smile
Mary MacADNski: Ha, ha! Reminds me of some fellow I met in Cuba. Says he is extremely poor in Canada and saves every penny to get to Cuba everywhere so that he can feel rich.
This is too gorgeous for words, and that expression on her face could be interpreted in so many different ways.
Just too beautiful.
Mary MacADNski: She is living her little fantasy and I think I enjoyed it as much as she did.
A magical age isn't it. She does look like she owns a pair of wings here
Mary MacADNski: Yes, a great age. The terrible twos will brgin in January.

A real cutie pie
Mary MacADNski: She certainly is.
It's great how their little minds make up stories to play out isn't it, I suppose we were the same at her age.
Mary MacADNski: I am still doing it - with her anyway.
Imagination. If only we could keep more of it when we grow up.
Mary MacADNski: I try to use mine in some cte8ive form every day.
The wonderful imaginary world of a child! A beautiful portrait Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Martin. It's a good ting to remember.
She is deep in her game Mary! Precious capture.
Mary MacADNski: She's such a great character.
Not big on family snaps Mary, but this is very cute as far as they go! smile
Mary MacADNski: I had her for a couple of weeks and had the time of my life.
