Wordful Wednesday!



For those of us who enjoy sharing our pictures, we all know that Angie's is the place to be on Wednesdays!

I'm sure you will all agree that children seem to learn very early on that if you run towards a flock of relaxing birds that they will fly away! I suppose it could be considered an early lesson in cause and effect.

It all starts off innocent enough. A bird walking in the sand catches a toddlers attention and as the child waddles over for a closer look (aka: I really want to give you a little squeeze), the bird flies away causing a smile to appear on the toddlers face.



The next thing you know a life long thrill of watching birds take flight has begun! Or maybe it is a life long thrill of scaring the crud out of them! Either way........it's all fun!

Toddlers are so great! I love watching their faces when they discover new things!

Chasing sea gulls was one of my daughter's favorite things to do at the beach. She loves the birds, too. I always have and am trying to pass on that love, too.

Love that picture!

That photo is wonderful. I love the composition and the colors, and of course the story behind it.
