Hanging Upside Down

Oh, to be a child again-
The thrill of Hanging upside down.
Hours of endless fun!
H could also be for HaPpY!
We try to be happy at our house.
Life is so short.

Hope you are happy today.
What was your favorite thing
to do at the playground when
you were young-er?
I liked the merry-go-round.
are both great places to meet
new blogging friends!

Love those photos! I loved SWINGING. I also loved a children's poem that went something like this: "Oh, how I love to go up in a swing! Up in the sky so blue!... "

How come you had a bad week last week? Are you ok? (((HUGS)))

Live.Love.Eat said...

Gosh, it's been so long but I loved the slides. Still do. I go down them with my son!!

I loved twirling on the monkey bars. We had to wear dresses, but that never stopped me.

BoufMom9 said...

I used to love the merry-go-round too! Now I can't even be the one to spin it. LOL

This brings back such great memories of our backyard swingset. I loved to hang upside down..what fun...

Sylvia K said...

Always loved the playgrounds as did my four kids. I still help out at a school here and recess time is always such fun, watching all of them trying to hang upside down. Beautiful shots that brought back lots of lovely memories! Thanks!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Very cute pictures....I can still hang upside down. But I just can't get back up again.
Hate that part.
I loved getting dizzy on the merry go round. Hard to imagine right?

Mama Kat said...

Isn't it funny how we used to LOVE the playground...now I'm constantly checking my watch. What if moms ran around the playground and swung from the monkey bars like kids do...just thinking about that makes me tired.

Brandi said...

That makes me want to go to the nearest playground! :)

antoinettemariew@blogspot.com said...

you can almost feel the sense of FUN and it makes you want to run straight to the park...way to capture the moment and the mood...plus the kids are so adorable! blessings...

photowannabe said...

Great post for the letter H. Love hanging upside down. I think I spent a lot of my younger life in that position on the monkey bars.

Liz said...

I wish I still had that kind of energy! Great pictures. My favorite was the merry go round and the swing. I miss those days!

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Teenagers nowadays are fond of the expression "hanging out", which I always thought was more appropriate for bats than for humans. However hanging upside down can be great fun too for kids too.

Rebecca Jo said...

Thanks for stopping by!!! I always love to see another Rebecca Jo (Rebekah)... I've ran into quite a few actually!!!

Your blog is just beautiful! Love the design of it!!!

I loved the monkey bars when I was a kid! I stayed on them for hours. I wrote my best songs hanging upside down you know!

Any news on Quince?

RR Mama said...

Great pictures! I loved the swings and slide. I want to be a kid again even if only for a while.

Cortney said...

Very fun! I loved (and still do) the swings!

Bonnie said...

This just reminded me that I too liked to hang upside down. I guess the monkey bars were my favorite. What cute kiddos!

Jay said...

I used to love anything which moved, or allowed me to move without effort - roundabouts, rocking horses or swings or slides!

One of my sons seemed to spend half his young life upside down!

Allison said...

My favorite thing was always the swings. I loved that little thrill in your stomach as you came back down after going really high!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Love all the play on the monkey bars. Nice shots.

richies said...

When I was a kid the swings were my favorite. Thanks for the memories, they made me happy!

Lovely! Happy children make for great photos.

Marrdy said...

This makes me want to be a kid again!

Thanks for stopping by last night. Right now I don't have any kitties. I got remarried and my hubby is allergic so my kids have all 6 of them...but I do get to visit them almost everyday.

Hopefully, with time and love, your new psyco kitty will mellow out. But you just never know with cats. They are a little crazy. That's why I love them!

drewmark19 said...

Monkey bars all the way! (Swings came in at a close second.)

Carolina said...

Fun photos!

Angela said...

Gabe's Girl said...

I loved playing kick ball. How funny you should post this. I went running today and thought of how much fun my sissy and I had during recess in elementary school!

angie said...

I used to LOVE to hang upside down, too. And also, sit on the bar with it under my knees and flip backwards. Love these shots!

jennykate77 said...

Love the pics of the kiddos! My favorite thing on the the playground was and still is the swings...it feels free when you're just soaring through the air.

Hope you're having a wonderful week!

Honey Mommy said...

We went to the park today. My son loves the swings right now. So I get to push!

Katie said...

I loved the Merry Go Round but now I about puke just thinking about it or the swings. I get such bad motion sickness...Ever since I had the kids, I don't know what it is. I guess I'm getting old. How's the old boss? We need a name for her? Something not mean but descriptive.

Tess Jones said...

I use to love going on the monkey bars. I thought I was something tough when I could go both ways without stopping. How I miss those days.

Christina said...

Cute!
