'We've had bad luck with our kids - they've all grown up.' ~Christopher Morley

PEEK-A-BOO

 Little monkey hiding low;
Now where, oh where, did that monkey go?


 Under the basket or the kitchen chair?



Little monkey found no where.


 Listen close, there goes a giggle

 And did I see that blanket wiggle?


Little monkey, peek-a-boo,


 I think it's over, I found you!
 Gloria Sarasin

All the pictures are wonderful but the kitty one kind of popped out at me ... something about the colors and/or those bright eyes. I'll have to show it to my daughter Eva - she'll love it!

All such lovely shots, but the last black and white of the little boy (?) is stunning. Amazing bright eyes.

The top quote made me giggle and get sad all at once.

Lovely pictures to go with a lovely rhyme.

Gigi said...

Loved that rhyme (and the pictures too!) because it reminded me of how much mine loved to hide from me. His giggles always gave him away.

Takes me back! I was at a baseball tournament yesterday thinking about you as I snapped photos of the little brothers and sisters and parents, along with the players. There was a lot of love, Miss Becky! ;-)
